Guns Sales Booming

Guns Sales Booming
I stopped by the gun shop I used to work at - and it was pretty busy for early in the day.

I wanted some .223 brass as I had ppicked up some cheap bullets and thought I might spend a few warm days coming up sitting in the A/C in the garage and reloading some rounds. All they had was Lake City (military surplus - which I have plenty but dislike as the primer pockets are swaged and a pain to re-prime.)

I was talking to the owner who took time to say hi... I noted that business was good. His reply - he told me how much he had taken in - and it was astounding. Pretty near record sales three months in a row. Christmas in July.

But - for the most part the shelves are stocked. The manufacturers are working overtime to keep supply up with demand...

....

So all of you who hate guns and want to see them go away - sorry.... I don't think people are ready to join the flock of the unarmed..

Not just yet.

And for the "that's just anectdotal" crowd -

It seems the FBI is of the same opinion.

Army vet empties pistol. Noone injured.

Conclusion - Army can't shoot for shit.

Kind of reinforces the idea that people who buy guns tend to be more fearful than ‘the flock of the unarmed’.

Not necessarily. Maybe he wasn’t trying to hurt anyone. Especially since he shot up his own vehicle in the process.

An unsubstantiated conclusion.

You assume they are fearful.


Mayhaps they simply like guns.

Maybe he was just getting an early start on the 4th of July....

You assume that those guns aren't being purchased by people who already have a closet full. It's a strange assumption, since we know that this is exactly how guns move in the us.

Then why did the spikes in gun sales and background checks coincide with the COVID-19 measures? Could it possibly be because of the fantasy of hordes of post-apocalyptic looters running amok and trying to take your stuff? Yes, it’s an unsubstantiated conclusion, but not an unreasonable one.

As to the parking lot shooter, the article says the vehicles were 10-15 feet apart, and he was walking towards the woman’s car. It seems like if he wanted to kill her and her daughter, he would have done so. Either way, it’s yet more good evidence that not everyone should be allowed firearms.
