Biden’s Anti-Gun Policies Fuel Record Firearms Sales: The New Normal in America

By Mark Chesnut

When American retailers sold more than 1 million new firearms in a single month nearly five years ago many considered it a milestone. Now it has become more of the norm, with April marking the fifty-seventh straight month of guns sales of a million or more.

According to a report from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the April 2024 NSSF-adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) figure was just over 1.2 million. That’s a slight decrease from the April 2023 figures of roughly 1.4 million.

Though not a direct correlation to firearms sales, the NSSF-adjusted NICS data provide an additional picture of current market conditions. In addition to other purposes, NICS is used to check transactions for sales or transfers of new or used firearms.

Mark Oliva, NSSF’s managing director for public affairs, said gun purchasers have once again made a statement on their freedom.

“Over 1.2 million Americans showed President Biden exactly where they are when it comes to his promises of increased gun control should he be elected for another term,” Oliva said. “President Biden has used every tool at his disposal to attack the firearm industry, from publishing Constitutionally-dubious and overreaching administrative rules that bypass Congress to create criminal law to weaponizing the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security to throttle firearm and ammunition manufacturers and exporters.”

Oliva said that while the president has continued to attack lawful gun owners, he’s ignored the violent criminals preying on everyday Americans.

Barry did the same, they are the best gun salesmen of all time.

Democrat’s crime policies are helping quite a bit, too. I wonder if it’s coincidence that where personal protection is needed most is areas where it is forbidden or made financially difficult to attain?
