NAT’L – OPINION – Gun Sales Continue Apparent Swell In June As Pandemic Rages And Politics Boil

GUN SALES CONTINUED TO MUSHROOM IN JUNE, APPARENTLY DUE TO A CONFLUENCE OF JOE BIDEN’S SURGE IN POLLS, THE SPREAD OF COVID-19, AND ONGOING PROTESTS AGAINST POLICE BRUTALITY AND RACIAL INJUSTICE. AMERICANS BOUGHT 2.4 MILLION FIREARMS IN JUNE, ACCORDING TO INDUSTRY ESTIMATES FROM SMALL ARMS ANALYTICS & FORECASTING. THAT IS A 145% INCREASE FROM JUNE 2019. HANDGUN SALES MAKE UP THE BULK OF THOSE ESTIMATES AND INCREASED AT AN EVEN HIGHER YEAR-OVER-YEAR RATE OF 178%.

NAT’L – INDUSTRY INSIDER – Gun Demand Is Off the Charts in America

U.S. CONSUMERS ARE RUSHING TO BUY GUNS AS THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC AND PROTESTS OVER POLICE BRUTALITY COMBINE WITH U.S. PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS TO FUEL UNPRECEDENTED DEMAND. FIREARM BACKGROUND CHECKS COMPILED BY THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION, A PROXY FOR GUN PURCHASES, JUMPED TO A RECORD IN JUNE AS STREET DEMONSTRATIONS SPREAD AROUND THE U.S. THAT EXTENDED A SURGE THAT BEGAN IN MARCH AS THE CORONAVIRUS PROMPTED LOCKDOWNS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. THE BOOM IS LIFTING THE SHARES OF GUNMAKERS SMITH & WESSON BRANDS INC. AND STURM RUGER & CO. AFTER FOUR MOSTLY LEAN YEARS FOR INVESTORS. GUN SHOP OWNERS AND WALL STREET ANALYSTS PREDICT NEW SALES GAINS, ESPECIALLY IF PROTESTS CONTINUE AND DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CHALLENGER JOE BIDEN, WHO SUPPORTS MORE RESTRICTIONS ON FIREARMS, MAINTAINS HIS LEAD IN NATIONAL POLLS OVER PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP.

UT – GUN CRIME – For Peace to Return Make the Left a Fading Nightmare

NAT’L – GUN NEWS – Shooting the Breeze: The .45-70 Government

Walt Gentis or Mike Browning or Jim Sproul ought to be writing this article. The experience those gentlemen have in hunting and long-range shooting with rifles chambered for this 147-year old cartridge far exceeds that of my own. There are many other names we could add to that list and from right here in Grant County. Nevertheless, I will attempt to pen more than a cheechako’s effort for your…

VA – NRA – The NRA Fights Back As Gun Controllers Dismiss The Second Amendment As “Nonessential”

THE NRA HAS ALWAYS BEEN GUIDED BY A SIMPLE PREMISE: THE RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS WAS RECOGNIZED AS ESSENTIAL IN 1791, WHEN IT WAS OFFICIALLY ADOPTED INTO OUR CONSTITUTION, AND NO PUBLIC OFFICIAL HAS THE AUTHORITY TO REVISIT THAT DECISION. SO WHILE THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK HAS CHANGED MANY ASPECTS OF AMERICAN LIFE IN THE LAST SEVERAL MONTHS, THE NRA HAS NOT ONLY REMAINED STEADFAST IN ENSURING THAT THE SECOND AMENDMENT DOES NOT BECOME A CASUALTY OF THE VIRUS, IT HAS FORGED AHEAD IN SECURING OUR RIGHTS AGAINST FUTURE INFRINGEMENTS.

NV – GUN RIGHTS – The glitz and absurdity of Las Vegas’s gun playgrounds

LAS VEGAS HAS A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING — GAMBLING, LIVE ENTERTAINMENT, A STRONG ORGANIZED LABOR TRADITION, FREE-FLOWING RIVERS OF BOOZE, SHRIMP COCKTAIL ON DEMAND — AND THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC HASN’T DAMPENED THE CITY’S APPETITE FOR EXCESS. EVEN AS THE STRIP ITSELF HAS EMPTIED OUT, BUSINESS HAS BEEN BOOMING AT THE SHOPS SELLING GUNS AND AMMUNITION NEARBY. IN OUR CURRENT AGE OF GOVERNMENT MANDATED-LOCKDOWNS AND WIDESPREAD NON-ESSENTIAL BUSINESS CLOSURES, NEVADA’S GUN STORES SKATED BY SCOT-FREE, THANKS TO A 2007 STATE LAW THAT MAKES SHUTTING THEM DOWN FLAT-OUT ILLEGAL. AND GUN STORES AREN’T THE ONLY PART OF NEVADA’S FIREARMS INDUSTRY THAT IS STILL ALIVE AND KICKING RIGHT NOW. IN A CITY THAT DOES EVERYTHING BIG, ONE OF ITS MOST INTERESTING EXCESSES IS ITS BEVY OF HIGH-POWERED SHOOTING RANGES. THE STRIP IS PEPPERED WITH THESE GARISH SHRINES TO GUN CULTURE; SOME ARE NESTLED RIGHT NEXT TO GLITTERING CLUBS AND CASINOS, WHILE THE LARGER, MORE EXTRAVAGANT VERSIONS REQUIRE A SHORT DRIVE DOWN LAS VEGAS BOULEVARD — BUT THEY’LL EVEN PICK YOU UP IN A TRICKED-OUT HUMVEE IF YOU BOOK IN ADVANCE.
