COMMENTARY: The New Normal

The run on guns makes bearing arms more like barely arms

Shelby Murdoc

If you’ve been into your local gun shop lately, you’ve likely noticed that the shelves might be a bit bare. Guns are being sold at an amazing rate, over 3 million between March and June. While initially fueled by those concerned mostly about a global disaster caused by the pandemic, the demand has been maintained or even driven higher by the crime and violence being perpetrated on America by the “mostly peaceful” protesters and rioters.

ShotSpotter noted that national gunfire trends in the US spiked around the time of the George Floyd protests and riots, eclipsing last year’s rate by more than 50%. Since then the trend has spiked even further, closing in on double 2019’s rate. Honestly, I’m a bit surprised that we aren’t well over 200% last year’s rate, what with the all intentional crime and chaos combined with the vilification of and demands to disband law enforcement.

A nation that spent two months cooped up in their homes and constantly barraged by alarmist coverage of the COVID situation is on the verge of losing its collective mind. And if you think things might calm down before the November elections, you probably haven’t been paying attention. People are stressed, even those who haven’t lost their jobs or been subjected to “mostly peaceful” looting and destruction. It might feel like the dial’s already been turned up to 11, but just wait until August. And in August, just wait until September.

And, when (if?) we reach September, don’t forget that October is going to make September look like Sunday School.

We are being told to accept mask requirements, assembly restrictions, spiking gun violence numbers, and mobs who don’t have to follow any rules as the “new normal,” and the gun sales reports show that many Americans believe it. We are leaving civilization behind, heading for a new frontier of uncertainty and trouble. Are we taking our reusable grocery bags with us on the way to the “new normal”?
Is America doubling down on carbon dioxide restrictions and open borders and vegan menus? No. America is buying guns at record rates.

The forces of chaos are demanding that we defund the police. The counter culture are the forces of chaos. The police are their kryptonite. They cannot win if the forces of law and order remain in power. They cannot tear down the nation and rebuild it in their preferred image if they cannot terrorize and brutalize those who stand against them.

But the forces of chaos and their gullible but useful idiots are probably not thinking things through all the way. For every extremist with a gun, there are hundreds of normal Americans with guns. And though many gun owners are expanding their arsenal or stocking up a bit more on ammunition, the data shows that a huge percentage of those 3 million guns sold since March were sold to first-time gun owners.

If they’re watching, those who wish to impost restrictive gun control are watching their hopes for a gun-free America evaporate before their eyes. The marches and the mobs and the riots and the looting—not to mention the so-called “autonomous zones” that loony leftists are trying to set up—are showing normal Americans that the world can be a scary place. Citizens who four months ago depended solely upon the government for protection have seen that the government is not always the good guy in the first place, that government doesn’t always side against those who break the laws and hurt people. They have seen that even when the government is on their side, it cannot possibly help everyone who needs help, not every time they need it. And they are seeing people who are demanding “justice” and “peace” also demanding to “defund the police,” which would seem to be a recipe for less justice and less peace, not more. But that’s their story and they’re sticking to it.

Americans are waking up to the fact that everything could tumble down overnight and that when you’re on your own, words won’t help. The mob can turn on its own in a flash, and no one really seems to care that obvious lies and hoaxes are being used to dump more fuel on the fire.

Extreme times require extreme measures. The new normal is extremely extreme, and it’s going to get extremer. And, as gun sales show, everybody knows it.
