The record-breaking gun sales during the coronavirus pandemic could bolster candidates that support the Second Amendment in 2020 and alter the course of American gun politics for the foreseeable future.

Several of the country’s leading gun-rights groups are working to convert many more first-time owners into new gun-rights voters in the run-up to the 2020 election. Amy Hunter, a spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association, said that the group’s success could change the political landscape at the local, state, and national level.

“The NRA believes voters who recently purchased guns for self-defense will join other Second Amendment voters and be an even more formidable voting bloc,” Hunter told the Washington Free Beacon. “They’re educated, passionate, and they know anti-gun politicians are the biggest threat to their fundamental right to self-defense.” more

  1. Don’t count on it. By “new gun owners”, the author is presumably referring to democrat voters. These are the type of people who a.) Don’t realize that the democrats they voted for actually created the civil unrest that caused them to arm-up, and b.) don’t give a shit, now that THEY have THEIRS, and c.) Will never admit that they were wrong.

  2. What percent of the record gun sales are new owners that haven’t owned a gun before and what percent are current gun owners buying another gun?

    I don’t know where to look for the numbers, or how they are being derived.
