Stimulus checks often spent on guns

“We’re expecting another big sale when the stimulus comes out,” he said. “They’ve got the extra money and people go indulge themselves with something they can’t normally afford. Some people want a car. Some people want a gun.”

He said that customers generally want semiautomatic pistols for self-protection and they sell out quickly — popular brands like Taurus, Sig Sauer and especially Glock are tough to keep in stock. He said that AR-15s are also sought out because they’re targeted by President Biden’s gun control planAmmunition is hard to come by, because demand has outstripped supply.” forbes

Comment: Hmmm. The law of unintended consequences? Ammuricans likes guns. We always have and always will. How many guns in civilian hands in the US? 300 million maybe? Nobody really knows. pl

    So the left wants to release criminals, open borders and round up guns owned by law abiding Americans. I wonder when the rest of America will catch on?

      Fred –

      The article answers that question, as do the empty shelves in every gun store and backorders weeks deep in online sales. They (we in toto) ARE caught or catching up.

      I’ve wanted to buy a lever action 45-70 for the last 6 months – no joy yet…

    • TV says:

      The rest of America – the mass of the badly educated, uninformed and immature – might catch on when they’re starving.

    #DefundThePolice means that we can’t steal guns from fallen police officers when SHTF. So people have to stock them now.
