Thanks largely, we suspect, to the Biden administration’s wrong-headed persistence in pursuing its anti-Second Amendment policies, buyers scooped up more than 1.2 million guns in June, making the month the second-best for gun sales on record.
The FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System shows that is a slight decline from May’s 1.3 million gun sales and about 900,000 short of last year’s monthly sales record.
Mind you, while things such as the Left’s calls for police defunding, along with food shortages, prisoner releases and widespread rioting, likely fueled surging purchases in recent years, President Joe Biden’s war on the Second Amendment now is prompting, at least partly, today’s gun sales. Americans, it turns out, are not ready to become subjects rather than citizens.
You have to wonder when Biden finally will realize he joins a long list of Democrats vying to be history’s best firearms salesman. He is moving steadily up in the ranks.
