Surprise! Gun Sales Are Booming Again (And No One Knows Why)

Surprise! Gun Sales Are Booming Again (And No One Knows Why)

A surprise increase in the number of Americans preparing to buy guns has some analysts confused.

The number of preliminary background checks for firearm purchases increased by 6.5 percent in May, FBI data indicates.

Background checks are a good predictor of the number of gun sales, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

The surge in gun sales defies past trends. Historically, weapons sales have increased when a Democrat wins the presidency, and dropped when a Republican is elected. Yet the number of firearms applications started increasing in April and grew again in May, according to FBI statistics.

Why Are Gun Sales Increasing?

Analysts have different theories of why gun sales are up. Some say it is a combination of people on the Left buying guns – out of a fear of the Trump administration – and people on the Right simply enjoying their freedom. Or perhaps it’s in reaction to events within the world and U.S., with terrorism and mass shootings taking place every week. A sheriff in Florida recently encouraged citizens to begin carrying guns. State action also might be to blame. Strict new gun-control laws have been enacted in a number of states, including California.

  1. I feel this recent shooting of a representative is going to give the government reason to put more measures on guns. Good job American! you just gave the government what they wanted; an excuse to have more restrictions!

    Better to buy now then wait for the new laws to be passed.

  2. Lower prices are one of the reasons for higher sales. I don’t need any more…but while prices are lower, why not, eh? Same for ammo. There’s sure to be a freedom hating dem in the white4 house in the future. Prep now while it’s more economical.
