(TNS) Every time Democrats discuss new gun control proposals, gun sales go up and it’s no different this time around as most of the 2020 presidential wannabes’ talk of new measures including confiscation have led to near-record sales.

Again.



Federal officials always note that FBI background checks are not an exact science, but they are a pretty good indicator of gun purchases.

An The Associated Press’ Marc Levy reported some numbers Saturday that ought to make every constitutionalist smile and every Democrat head for the Alka Seltzer.

“Via @AP: Background checks on gun purchases in the U.S. are climbing toward a record high this year, reflecting what the industry says is a rush by people to buy weapons in reaction to the Democratic presidential candidates’ calls for tighter restrictions,” he wrote on Twitter.

“By the end of November, more than 25.4M background checks — generally seen as a strong indicator of gun sales — had been conducted by the FBI, putting 2019 on pace to break the record of 27.5M set in 2016, the last full year President Barack Obama was in the White House,” he added.

Obama, you recall, regularly discussed ways he could reduce gun ownership by making it more difficult to exercise our Second Amendment rights: Ammo taxes, waiting periods, and outright bans of certain types of firearms incorrectly named “assault weapons.”

Looks like a lot of Americans used Black Friday as their impetus to help themselves to a new weapon, according to Levy.

And, correcting the record here, because AP doesn’t want to get its facts wrong (unless it’s a story about, say, Trump-Russia-Ukraine collusion):

And anyway, doesn’t the Garbage Party tell us all the time there aren’t enough background checks?

On a serious note, Democrats may be great gun salespeople, but they make better authoritarians.

The fact that they talk about taking guns and gun rights away in a country whose founders specifically recognized the “right to keep and bear arms” as “inalienable” tells us all we need to know about what policies they’ll pursue if they win.

Yet, President Trump, the claim, is the “tyrant.” Riiiiight.
