Nearly 1/4 of New Gun Buyers are First-Time Owners, Half of Them Women

The numbers are sure to upset the left.

Gun sales soared last year and much to the left’s displeasure, nearly a quarter of those sales went to first-time owners and half of them were women.

The numbers are sure to upset leftists because they want to keep pushing the lie that only evil white men want to own guns. But the numbers show that millions of guns have gone to blacks, women, and first-time buyers, not evil white men who are stockpiling them.

According to the numbers, sales of firearms soared last year, with over 23 million new guns sold. It was a 60 percent increase over 2019 as nearly nine million Americans became owners of a new gun. Breaking this trend down further, it was estimated that around 20 percent of Americans who bought guns in 2020 were first-time owners, and half were women.

According to The Hill:

Approximately one-fifth of Americans who purchased guns last year were first-time buyers, according to new preliminary data from Northeastern University and the Harvard Injury Control Research Center.

The data also showed increases in the overall number of gun buyers and the total number of gun owners in the U.S.

Of the first-time buyers recorded in 2020, half were women, a fifth were Black and a fifth were Hispanic, according to The New York Times, which reported on the new data.

Last year’s first-time buyers were less likely than usual to be male and white, the Times noted.

The newspaper did note, however, that first-time buyers accounted for approximately 20 percent of gun sales in 2019, signaling that the pandemic did not kick off the trend.

The numbers of blacks and women who have joined the ranks of American gun owners is infuriating Democrats because support for new gun control laws continues to plummet. As more Americans on a wider basis begin to own guns, the fewer Americans who will be interested in supporting gun banning legislation that Democrats have been pushing for the last 50 years.

According to a Fox News report, the Biden admin. has released more than 600,000 illegal aliens into the U.S. since he took office.

For a comparison, it appears that Joe Biden has released more illegals than the population of two U.S. states. Wyoming only has 578,759 citizens, and Vermont has 623,989.

Last week, Sen. Ron Jonson said that Biden’s administration is flat out lying about the numbers of illegals that are streaming into the U.S. Johnson said that Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas lied about how many of the 1.3 million illegals that have streamed across the border since January have been deported back to their home countries.

”You know, I gave him questions for the record, which he didn’t respond to. And so, you’re coming into hearings yesterday in the Senate, today in the House, you’ve got to know that you’re going to be asked that question,” Johnson told Newsmax on Sept. 22. ”How could you not come prepared with that basic information?”

”They know the number,” Johnson added. ”They don’t want the American people [to] know the number, because the American people would be shocked. During his last appearance, I just did the back of an envelope count, calculation. I figured, probably about 600,000 people will be dispersed all over this country this year.”

”And again, that’s while they still have the Title 42 powers in place to return a lot of those individuals. So, 600,000 people. That’s a number larger than the population of Wyoming. And so they don’t want people to know that because there’s still denying that this is a crisis,” the Sen. said.

Joe Biden Claims ‘Trillionaires’ Aren’t Paying Enough Taxes, But there Are No U.S. Trillionaires

Joe Biden attacked American “trillionaires” on Friday even though there aren’t any U.S. trillionaires in the first place.

Joe Biden attacked American “trillionaires” on Friday who he says aren’t paying enough taxes, but — fact check, Joe — there aren’t any U.S. trillionaires in the first place.

“I’m running to change the dynamic of how the economy grows,” Biden said during a presser. “I’m tired of trickle-down. Trillionaires and billionaires are doing very, very well. You all report it.”

It is also unclear what Joe thinks he’s “running” for, unless he has forgotten that he has been crowed president of the United States.

Aside from that, though, even America’s richest person, Amazon chief Jeff Bezos, is a mere multi-billionaire with a net worth of $177 billion, according to Forbes magazine.

Per Breitbart News:

The president spoke about raising taxes on the wealthy after an event promoting coronavirus vaccine booster shots at the White House.

He claimed his policies for a permanent childcare tax credit were not costing the government any money.

“It’s not,” Biden said. “It’s reducing taxes, reducing taxes, not increasing taxes.”

He again pressed the issue of taxes as a moral issue, noting corporations were not paying enough.

“I just think it’s about just paying your fair share,’ he said, adding that it was “just wrong.”

Apparently, Biden doesn’t know who earns what in the U.S. Indeed, his plan would be just another broken campaign promise because it raises taxes on people making under $400,000 a year, something he said he would not do.
