African Americans have been a major driver of 2020’s record-setting growth in new gun ownership, according to an industry survey.
Gun dealers reported a 58.2 percent increase in black customers in 2020—the most rapid growth of any ethnic group, according to a survey from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), which represents gun makers and dealers. More than eight million guns have been sold in 2020, according to background-check records, and many purchasers are first-time gun owners.
“It has been well known inside the industry that purchasers of guns and ammunition have long had diverse demographic backgrounds,” the NSSF said in a statement on the survey. “The highest overall firearm sales increase comes from black men and women who show a 58.2 percent increase in purchases during the first six months of 2020 versus the same period last year.”
The numbers indicate firearms ownership in the United States continues to diversify. The changing demographics of gun ownership could have a significant impact on the politics surrounding guns—especially with millions of Americans becoming new gun owners in the months that followed the coronavirus outbreak. The growth in gun ownership was not limited to black customers. The survey found white customers increased by 51.9 percent, Hispanic customers by 49.4 percent, and Asian customers by 42.9 percent.
Democrats are going to hate this… They hate when law-abiding Americans are able to defend themselves!
