It Won’t Cool Off: Survey Reveals More Than 3 Million First-Time Gun Buyers by Mid-2021 – RedState

The Taliban has new ones, so why shouldn’t you?

I’m referring, of course, to guns.

A lot of 2021 Americans have had somewhat of a similar idea, as purchases by new firearm owners continue to soar.

At least, a new survey says that’s the case.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation — the firearm industry trade association — reported this month on transactions across the first half of the year.

As of June, the group says, there had been nearly 9.8 million background checks for gun sales.

Response to the organization’s survey suggests 33.2 percent of those were first-timers.
