In the wake of the COVID panic and subsequent riots, millions of Americans sought to arm themselves. In fact, this year has seen a record number of first-time gun buyers across the country. One of the largest groups to buy a gun for the first time has been black Americans. Democrats in New York, however, are trying to deprive this group of their rights by seeking to destroy the NRA.
It took a global pandemic and widespread riots, but millions of Americans are finally realizing why the Second Amendment is so important. Gun purchases jumped in the early days of the lockdowns. Americans probably feared what panicked people might do during a pandemic. But purchases only continued as people watched Democrats promise to defund cops, as rioters ran wild.
The result, more than two million Americans have bought a gun for the first time.
FBI numbers show 3,091,455 NICS checks were conducted in May 2020, easily surpassing the previous record of 2,349,309 checks set in May 2019 and dominating the numbers from any other May since records began to be kept in May 1999. [Source: Breitbart]
Not only that, but the highest overall gun sales are from black men and women. There has been a 58.2% increase in gun purchases by black Americans.
Now, if you were a politician, what should you be thinking? Americans are embracing the Second Amendment in a big way. A smart leader who not stop them. A brilliant leader would capitalize on it by showing them support. What are Democrats doing? Trying to dissolve the NRA.
Yes, they are that stupid.
New York Attorney General Letitia James announced Thursday that her office has filed a lawsuit against the National Rifle Association and its leadership, including Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, looking to dissolve the organization.
James accused the organization of having “a culture of self-dealing,” taking millions of dollars for personal use and granting contracts that benefited leaders’ family and associates. [Source: Fox News]
Wow. How pathetic. Just as millions of black Americans start buying guns for the first time, Democrats are trying to kill the group that defends our Second Amendment rights.
This is no coincidence, folks. Democrats are seeing the gun-buying numbers. And they’re terrified. Millions of Americans now have new opinions on gun control. Democrats don’t like seeing black people arming and defending themselves (why else do they try to make them defenseless by defunding cops?). So, they are trying to get rid of a group that has fought to protect our rights for decades.
With the NRA gone, Democrats can push all kinds of gun control with little resistance. It’s that simple. All those new gun owners might have to give up their guns, if Democrats at the federal and state level pass ridiculous new restrictions.
Plus, without the NRA, all those new gun owners won’t have a valuable resource to go to so they can learn gun safety and ownership.
The Democrats aren’t just being stupid. They are deliberately trying to prevent more Americans from exercising their gun ownership rights. Because an armed American won’t be a victim to a corrupt government or society. Democrats bank on black Americans seeing themselves victims that need the government (and Democrats) to support them.
Will a black person feel like a victim if they can defend their homes with a shotgun? Not really.
This is a new low for a party that I didn’t think could go lower. They want to strip Americans of their rights, so we have no choice but to rely on their crooked, abusive, power-hungry regime.
But something tells me this scheme, like so many others, will blow up in their faces.
