That bar on the right of the graph represents projected FBI background checks for “Black Friday” gun sales. The Fibbies estimate “a huge total for November 27, spokesman Stephen Fischer tells The Trace. Bureau forecasts show this Black Friday shattering the single-day record with an estimated 190,000 background checks run in a 24-hour period — or slightly more than two background checks every second.” Oh the irony! The Truth About Guns quotes Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun agitprop propagators The Trace for a story revealing that Americans are tooling-up as never before. And why is that? (The buying spree, not punking The Trace). One reason stands out . . .
Hillary. The prospect of the vividly anti-gun rights former First Lady becoming president has scared the be-Jesus out of gun owners. Saying that, it’s a perfect storm. The increasingly credible threat of terrorist attack has stimulated the gun buying glands of both existing gun owners and newbies. At the same time, pro-gun rights states are continuing to liberalize their gun laws; Kansas just went Constitutional Carry. And video game warriors continue to come of age. Could we see another guns and ammo drought? We could. In fact, it won’t be long before there are more guns in America than Americans. How great is that?
