1.3 Million Firearms Sold Last Month

More than 1.3 million were sold during the month of February. “Over 1.3 million background checks were conducted for the sale of a firearm in February, holding steady with the figure from one year ago,” National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) director of public affairs Mark Olivia told reporters.

From 19FortyFive:

“This is demonstrative of a steady appetite for Americans from all walks of life to exercise their Second Amendment right to lawful firearm ownership. Certain politicians choose twisted narratives to demonize firearm ownership instead of confronting the criminal elements in our communities. Figures like these, month after month, show us that Americans reject that rhetoric and are choosing to protect themselves and participate in the rich heritage of the shooting sports.”
