  • Thank You Leftists, For Making Gun...

    ...ownership cool again...

    Study shows gun permits soared during coronavirus pandemic, hit record high year-over-year increase

    Minorities and women make up a significant portion of the increase

    I'll never understand the psychology of scared people's fascination with guns and arming themselves that you get in the states.

        We went through a summer of violent rioting and looting that nobody was held accountable for and police were often told to stand down by the politicians. We've got a massive surge in violent crime (30% rise in homicides). Hamstrung police forces that are severely understaffed. DAs who refuse to prosecute even the most violent offenders. And an Attorney General that is laser-focused on squashing parents complaining at school board meetings (even calling the FBI in).

        Yeah, it's just insane to want to protect yourself when your government has lost interest in doing so.

        I'm always still in trouble again

                It is easy enough to understand: When the law fails to protect people, they must needs protect themselves. The part that is hard to understand is the level of support for preventing the law from protecting people.

                  It could be a sign that a nation lacks maturity!

                  There also seems to be an underlying terror among some Americans of "government" which often seems to translate as potential "tyranny".

                  Of course absolute personal freedom would lead to total chaos and anarchy. As when A's personal freedom to to X adversely affects B's personal freedom to do Y.

                    All of the politicians and celebrities have armed protection, so why can't we?

                    Owning a gun isn't about "being afraid" it is about being prepared. I will probably never ever need to use my gun against another person, but the one time I do, I will be prepared to protect myself and those around me. In the meantime, target shooting is a fun hobby.

                      I suspect that most new gun buyers are in the Leftist-controlled, gang-infested cities, where violent crime is rampant and people can't depend on law enforcement anymore. So, yeah, Leftist failure to protect its citizens could be called immaturity.

                      I don't own a gun. I don't see the need in a region where Leftists are rare and control nothing.

                        I suspect the registration increase is mainly in cities where gangs and Leftist mobs were/are running rampant. The relatively few areas the news likes to cover for ratings.

                            The real tell is how many women in the past few years have suddenly become gun owners. I know two who not too long ago were firmly against having any sort of gun in their homes but now have them.

                            Let's just hope they get some safety and shooting lessons (something EVERYONE should do when they get their first firearm).
