Gun sales up 73% from 2019. Americans bought 21 million firearms this year, new figures show

Gun sales in the United States have soared in 2020 following a year of radical-left violence against the backdrop of a global pandemic.

Americans purchased 21 million firearms this year, according to the latest figures.

The number marks a staggering increase of 73 percent over the number purchased in 2019.

The estimated 21 million guns sold was revealed in an ABC News report that quotes figures from The Trace.

ABC claims the buying surge is the result of a “perfect storm” consisting of “the pandemic, economic recession, civil unrest, and a divisive presidential election.”

The network spoke to a mother of three named Trish Beaudet, who says she has never owned a firearm before but is now buying one for herself and one for her 25-year-old daughter.

Beaudet said, “I’ve never owned a gun.

"I’ve never wanted a gun.

"I’ve never had a gun in my home.”

She then pointed to the chaos in the streets and on the news, lamenting:

It really bothers me when I watched things on the news, when you talk about the riots, and the looting, and the violence that’s happening.

Pulling a gun is the last thing I ever want to do, but I want to know that if I need to protect myself, my family, my, you know, my children, that I can do that.

Divorced mother of two and “self-described Democrat” Erin Hart told a similar story.

“My nightmare scenario would be being at home alone, middle of the night, and just myself and, you know, the boys, and, and someone coming in to harm us," Hart said.

"When things start to hit a little closer home it kind of makes you sit up and think about it.”

November 2020 was the 11th consecutive month of record background checks for gun sales, according to Breitbart.

FBI figures showed there were 3,626,335 National Instant Criminal Background System (NICS) checks performed in November 2020, which represented more checks than were performed in any November since NICS was established.

This same scenario was true of January 2020, which witnessed more NICS checks than any January on record, and February 2020, which witnessed more NICS than any February on record, and so on, all the way through November.

ABC News concluded their report on surging gun sales with a gun control push that was focused on background checks.
