Skip to comments.Report: Gun Sales Surge 80 Percent in Seven Swing States
Posted on 09/25/2020 11:42:02 AM PDT by bitt
Gun sales have been rising nationwide for months but are specifically up in seven swing states as the November 3, 2020, election approaches.
Fox News reports the Cook Political Report lists Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin as toss-ups in the coming election. They also indicate New Hampshire and North Carolina can be considered toss-ups too.
Here is the kicker: There is a 77.9 percent surge in gun sales growth for those seven states.
This news is on top of National Shooting Sports Foundations findings ammunition sales surged 139 percent nationally during the first six months of 2020. And the surge in swing state gun sales comes as 2020 witnesses eight consecutive months of record background checks for gun sales.
On September 2, 2020, Breitbart News reported that January 2020 through August 2020, eight consecutive months, saw record gun sale background checks performed by the FBI.
What do these surging background checks, gun sales, and ammunition sales, indicate for the November elections, particularly where they are seen in swing states?
Do gun purchasers turn into gun voters, who will support Second Amendment candidates over gun control candidates?

MY kind of poll....
It’s wearing me out.
We haven’t had a day of under 100 guns sold in months.
It was 200 guns a day so it has slacked off some, mostly due to reduced inventory and lack of ammo.
You are doing good work. Keep it up. Helping to ensure Liberty is tiring.
80% doesn’t mean much if it’s gun enthusiasts adding to the collection. What is the percentage of new, first time gun buyers?
we do not live in an ideal world, even tho we live in probably the best country and society in history
anyone who is not prepared to defend himself with the DNC scheme to steal the election... and all their Burn Loot and Mayhem street gangs attacking people and our homes and communities
anyone still unprepared for basic self-defense is either nuts or suicidal (or both)
I dunno, but I'm part of it.
Thanks to Antifa and BLM! More fans of the Second Amendment.
They don’t work without ammo
40% first time gun buyers is the number I heard recently.
The diktats of power mad governors, the "Defund the Police" agenda, and the district attorneys who aid rioters and seditionists make it clear that you're on your own and you better be armed.
That's probably impossible to say for sure.
My guess is those that own several ARs and have several thousand rounds of ammo are probably not buying at today's high prices. They may figure to wait until prices decline before adding to their stockpiles.
If true, the upsurge in gun sales is due to many first time buyers.
A lot of them, apparently
I think i heard 5 million
First time buyers: Who are you going to find to teach you?
NRA instructors are fascists.
All hunters are fascists.
All military are fascists, and stupid as well.
College was a MUCH better option, and reserved for the smart ones. Well yeah, you had to drop all the STEM courses, and have a degree in Gender Studies, but daddy got you a job in HR, and you are STILL smarter than the guy who plotted artillery fires, and fixed radar, and repaired jet engines, and steered 50,000 ton ships.
After all, how hard can THAT be?
Conservatives are stupid. They work with their hands, they believe in the Sky Living Spaghetti Monster, and actually doubt the Historic Inevitability of Communism. You can see them, walking around without masks, which all correct thinking people know grants Immortality.
I'd like to think this is /s, but I've met too many Democrats.
There’s plenty of 9mm and .223 ammo available.....for a price.
This Ping List is for all things pertaining to infringes upon or victories for the 2nd Amendment.
FReepmail me if you want to be added to or deleted from the list.

I stocked up the day after hussein got elected in 2008.
Good for you!
