This News About May Gun Sales Under Trump Might Surprise You

In the midst of Muslim terrorist attacks and leftist violence, more Americans are buying guns to defend themselves.

Washington Examiner columnist Paul Bedard reported that gun sales in May 2017 reached a record of 1,942,677, higher than previous numbers for that month, even after gun sales increased under Barack Obama.

The continued growth of gun sales is in stark contrast to some in the media and industry who feared that the election of President Trump would snuff out sales that in 2016 were driven in part by concerns Hillary Clinton would win and implement strict gun control and an assault weapons ban.

At the one of the nation’s largest gun stores, Hyatt Guns in Charlotte, N.C., sales are up in reaction to safety concerns.

“We are continuing to see brisk sales of self-defense and concealed carry firearms. We’re also continuing to see new gun buyers,” said Hyatt Marketing Director Justin Anderson.

A gun store owner quoted in the column reminded readers that they might have only seconds to act, but the police will be minutes away.

Law-aiding citizens have a right to protect themselves and their families with guns, and all freedom-loving Americans should oppose any effort to take away this constitutional right.

  1. We need a national right to carry even though it’s in the 2nd amendment already the liberal courts are chipping away, and chipping away at it! Thank God and Trump for Gorsich!

    • Concur! My state refuses to implement CC in the manner of, I think, now seven states have. As has been shown, to no small degree, you need no gun to effect ‘mass casualties.’ Automobiles are regulated, registered, licensed and controlled to the n’th degree; however, not only do “people” kill 10’s of thousands every year, ‘accidentally,’ with them, they often are used as a weapon to kill randomly! The true ‘benefit’ of these regulations are the billions of dollars sucked into the local, state, and federal government’s coffers. My state’s, “unconstitutional,” requirement, that I ‘purchase’ some “license” to carry a weapon, places a cost burden of $80+ for every renewal. That cost has increased exponentially from an initial $15 to that current over $80 charge! I already pay taxes to have these ‘paper shufflers’ run background checks and finger prints – so, in effect, my state is telling me I must defray their cost in implementing some process they require of me? I will be, in the future, exercising “Civil Disobedience” by refusing to pay this unconstitutional fee – and, I will be armed. Hated phrase, my bottom line says two things: 1) The people in my state are no ‘safer’ by the state requiring that I maintain a license to carry a weapon – check any major metropolis for “license carrying gun toting killers.” 2) I will obey no ‘man-made law’ that would deprive me of my “God Given Right To Self-defense, of myself or mine, by ANY Appropriate Means” – see Britain, France, Orlando, et.al.!

  2. No surprise, when you have a country that ‘allows’ ONE unelected judge the supreme power to shut down The President of The United States. What possibly can go wrong with that? And, all this time, we’ve been told that “The President of The United States is the MOST powerful man in the world!” As the saying goes, “keep your powder dry,” boys and girls, anarchy can not be far around the corner….
