Gun Sales Surge After Mass Shootings, Trump Gun Control Promise

In the wake of the shootings in Dayton and El Paso, and ahead of potential gun control legislation being enacted by President Trump, firearms sales have surged, as Americans look to protect themselves.

The Washington Examiner reports that gun shops are seeing an uptick in business, particularly from first time buyers.

“While we have seen a measured rise in sale of certain tactical rifles and accessories this week, most customers are looking for concealed carry handguns,” said Justin Anderson, Marketing Director of Hyatt Guns in Charlotte, N.C.

“Just this week we have fielded hundreds of calls from people that have never purchased a gun before. Our concealed carry training classes are filling up quickly.” Anderson added.

“People are realizing that even a trip to Walmart isn’t safe these days and they want to be able to protect themselves.” he continued.

“Remember that nothing stops a lunatic bent on carnage better than a law abiding citizen with a gun. I continue to urge people to get a gun, get trained with that gun, and carry, always,” he added.

FBI Figures show another jump in purchases and background checks, with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System showing that 2019 is likely to be the second biggest year since 2016, when sales soared in anticipation of Hillary Clinton winning the election.

The figures show that there have been close to 16 million background checks in the first seven months of the year.

After President Trump said Monday that he was mulling legislation for stronger background checks, stocks of gun companies also surged, while the market more broadly slumped.

We cannot let those killed in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, die in vain. Likewise for those so seriously wounded. We can never forget them, and those many who came before them. Republicans and Democrats must come together and get strong background checks, perhaps marrying....

The Washington Post claims that Trump “has repeatedly told lawmakers and aides in private conversations that he is open to endorsing extensive background checks.”

The report claims that “the president has discussed with aides the idea of a Rose Garden bill-signing ceremony for gun-control legislation,” and states that Trump has also asked lawyers about what he could enact through an executive order.

Trump’s waivering on the issue has prompted a warning from the NRA.

You can call anyone crazy, and it can be a false pretext for the violation of gun rights. Due process is required to violate fundamental rights. Adjudicated mentally ill are already forbidden from owning guns. The proposed measures, such as red flag laws, are a trojan horse against the rights of everyone. In Maryland we have many examples of people using such laws and court system to take away people’s property. Slap the crazy label on a person, and the courts help you steal their property. Current proposals are just bad policy, allowing rights to be violated at the whim of those who have something to gain from it· People with a genuine illness will avoid treatment, so that their rights won’t be violated· Current proposals would not have prevented recent shootings. It’s an absurd over reach.

I’m vehemently against these knee-jerk, ill-advised gun control proposals. Protect our RIGHTS! It is the same argument every time, exploiting the deaths of our fellow countrymen in order to attack our protected rights. There are millions of mentally ill people in this country, who are not a danger to anyone. These proposals will only create a stigma, piling on with an attack on the rights and an insult. The fact that you think a person is crazy does not remove their need for self-defense. It’s a right. This is the selfsame reason why the gun right is protected in so that it won’t be violated so frivolously. Let’s be honest. Our grief is disturbed by those who exploit it to attack our God-given rights. Enough!
