2.5M Guns Sold in March 2020 | Single Busiest Month Ever!

2.5M Guns Sold in March 2020 | Single Busiest Month Ever!

We all suspected that gun sales for March would be up but now we have the numbers to prove it. Americas bought an estimated (not all NICS checks represent one gun purchase) 2.5 million firearms in March of 2020. This represents a more than 80% increase in sales over March 2019 or about one million more guns sold than the previous March.

An NRA tweet pretty much says it all:


Another interesting stat was that handguns were purchased getting close to twice the rate as long guns. Add to this that gun shops around the country are reporting a high rate of first-time purchasers and it must be driving the gun control crowd half-mad.

Hopefully, all these new gun owners will decide to vote to protect their newly exercised 2A rights this fall.  To that end, let’s all of us do whatever we can to help these new gun owners to get the proper training they need and to help them become active 2A supporters.
