Democrats’ Unprecedented Embrace of Gun Control
The party is betting that support for restrictions is more likely to attract moderate voters than turn them off.
But, on the other hand.
Nearly 5 million Americans purchased a firearm for the very first time in 2020. NSSF surveyed firearm retailers which reported that 40 percent of sales were conducted to purchasers who have never previously owned a firearm.
Gun sales are booming, at an all-time high. And, a sizable number of those sales are to people who have never previously purchased a firearm.
The American people are looking for security right now. The Democrats would do well to shut up about any type of gun control. But, if they think it's a winning message, they should go for it.
