Americans Sense Something Is Wrong: Gun Sales Up 72%

Gun sales were up 72% compared to this time last year,  with first-time buyers leading the pack. Americans are likely sensing that something is horribly wrong with the rigged system we are forced to live under.

According to a report by the Washington Post, the National Sports Shooting Foundation says that first-time gun buyers played a heavy role in the increase.  Women and black Americans have also shown interest in arming themselves this year.

“Nearly 5 million Americans purchased a firearm for the very first time in 2020. NSSF surveyed firearm retailers which reported that 40% of sales were conducted to purchasers who have never previously owned a firearm,” the organization said in its analysis, which tracked background checks associated with the sale of a firearm reported by the FBI’s National Instant Background Check System.

The organization said this uptick in purchases by those who have not owned a gun before, equates to nearly 5 million first-time gun owners in the first seven months of 2020. “This is a tectonic shift in the firearm and ammunition industry marketplace and complete transformation of today’s gun-owning community,” said Lawrence G. Keane, a senior vice president at the foundation. “These first-time buyers represent a group of people who, until now, were agnostic regarding firearm ownership. That’s rapidly changing, and these Americans are taking hold of their God-given right to keep and bear arms and protect themselves and their loved ones,” Mr. Keane said.

With social upheaval, political overreach and power grabs, and any number of other issues 2020 has thrown at the public, Americans appear to at least somewhat be willing to fight for their right to live freely.

The foundation’s current surveys revealed that 58% of all firearm purchases were among Black men and women, the largest increase of any demographic group. Women comprised 40% of first-time gun purchasers. Retailers also noted that they are seeing a 95% increase in firearm sales and a 139% increase in ammunition sales over the same period in 2019. –the The Washington Post

The general consensus seems to be that with four months left in 2020, we have yet to see the true scope and depravity of the elites who claim to own everyone and everything. But, lead is one of my personal favorites when it comes to storing metals.

Interest In Coronavirus Fear Is Waning

The public’s interest in the coronavirus is waning.  Because fear is necessary to get people on board with their enslavement, now is the time to not let your guard down when it comes to another crisis.

One of the big problems in the United States is the growing number of Americans who are tiring of the hype over the coronavirus says Statista’s Willem Roper. He suggests, that based on recent data, there may be a growing indifference amid a weariness of misinformation and a news cycle dominated by the virus. And that’s a “concern.”

In a new survey from the Pew Research Center, nearly 40 percent of U.S. adults in June say the outbreak has been exaggerated – an almost 10 percent increase since April. In terms of political party, respondents who identified as Republican or leaning Republican had the largest increase between April and June, going from 47 percent to 63 percent believing the outbreak has been exaggerated.

In March and April, Pew recorded that a majority of Americans were closely following updated news on COVID-19 and how it was spreading locally, nationally, and globally, according to a report by ZeroHedge. Since then, new surveys show Americans’ interest has quickly dissipated, going from 46 percent in May to just 39 percent of U.S. adults saying they’re closely following COVID-19 news in June.

This doesn’t mean the panic forced on the public is ending just yet.  The media is still actively trying to gin up fear and supply reasons for states to lock people down again violating their basic human rights. However, when interest in a subject wanes, and the goal is over totalitarianism, it’s likely there will be another crisis to take the place of the COVID-19 scam.

Stay alert and vigilant, but don’t be fearful. Have a few types of metals on hand (gold, silver, and lead) and make sure your preps are in order.  The elites have already shown that a “good crisis will not go to waste” and we’ve seen them follow through on that.

Now is a good time to make sure you’ve got at least a little extra food because the media seems intent upon a food shortage.  It also bears importance to know that they are also ginning up fear of a virus coming from pigs raised for meat, so that could play into this as well.  It’s still difficult to say exactly what the next crisis will be, but they have been waving the food shortage flag for several weeks now.
