(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – American Patriots’ thirst for firearms to defend themselves, their families, and their country has not been quenched.
Although firearm sales have declined from their previous highs, they are still at 1.25 million per month and have been for almost three years.
The FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System data reveals that gun sales background checks have exceeded the 1.25 million threshold for 33 consecutive months.
That is the highest level of gun purchases in United States history.
According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, 1.25 million sales per year may be the “new normal” lowest number for presale background checks.
“April’s NSSF adjusted NICS figures of 1,359,908 shows that there is a steady and sustained appetite for lawful firearm ownership in America. April’s figure continues the streak of more than 1 million background checks for the sale of a firearm for 33 months and demonstrates that the firearm industry continues to meet America’s strong demand for lawful firearm ownership,” said Mark Oliva, the spokesman for the National Shooting Sports Foundation.
Recently, Cam Edwards, the website Bearing Arms editor, opined, “The surge in gun purchases that began in March of 2020 has definitely subsided, but the ‘new normal’ for gun sales appears to be higher than what it was before the COVID pandemic, riots, and unrest, and a rise in violent crime caused millions of Americans to embrace their right to keep and bear arms for the first time in their lives.”
