Estimated gun sales eclipsed historic highs in March

‘Yuge’ March for estimated gun sales
Estimated gun sales eclipsed historic highs in March, according to federal data.
Applications submitted to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System exceeded 2.7 million last month — the busiest March on record and the third highest ranking month since the FBI began keeping track in 1998.

Okay, this was interesting.

I saved the image locally as c:\temp\gunsales.jpg, so I could share it on my FB page.

When I tried to upload the photo to a new post, the upload didn't happen. I had an empty post.

Went back, renames the JPG file to 'bunnies.jpg' and it uploaded successfully.

I thought gun ownership was waning.
1911s should be carried openly as God and John Moses Browning (PBUH) intended them to be.

Gun purchases were waning......but only from historic high sales in 2016. I believe gun sales are still up when you look at the last few decades.

That thread on 10 reasons to oppose gun control. One of the reasons was gun ownership is waning even though barry sold more ARs than anyone in history.

I think that they are saying the number of households with guns is going down, while the number of guns in the country is increasing. This can be explained by households who already have guns, purchasing more.

Democrat controlled big cities are responsible for keeping millions of their citizens from owning guns. That and people aren't being honest with survey takers are the reasons number of households owning guns is allegedly down.

:iagree: THIS! I know a few liberals personally that would NEVER admit to owning a gun! (But they do)
