Americans Buy More Than 100 Million Guns Since Election of Obama

When the leader of a nation appears to be fine with disarming the good guys, that’s going to drive gun sales up. Americans are tired of being targets for the bad guys. And many of us are doing something about it. What do you think of this news?

On December 8 Fox News reported that more than 100 million guns have been sold since the election of President Obama.

The significance of that number of guns being sold in that short of time can be best understood by contrasting it with Congressional Research Service figures showing private gun ownership climbed from 192 million firearms in 1994 to 310 million firearms in 2009. That was newsworthy, although it was only 118 million firearms in a 15 years. Under Obama we are talking about 100 million guns sold in less than seven years.

In the wake of the San Bernardino attack Fox News’s William La Jeunesse observed, “Since President Obama was first elected Americans have bought more than 100 million guns. While you often see a spike in local gun sales after a crime spree, today’s increase is nationwide. Not just California.”

We are guaranteed the ability to have and carry a firearm by our Constitution. And there will be times, in the face of a mass killing or terror attack, that a good guy with a gun will be the only thing standing between more victims and the bad guy with a gun. There are consequences to weak and inferior leadership, and gun ownership on the increase is one of them. Get certified, get a permit and get ready for the day you may be called upon to defend yourself, your family or your coworkers. Unfortunately, these situations seem to occur more frequently now. And Americans have the freedom to be prepared.
