More Than One Million Civilian Guns Were Sold In May For 34th Consecutive Month

Americans are in the midst of a months long gun buying spree.

May was the 34th straight month that over a million civilian guns were sold.

And this is happening as out-of-touch Democrats are once again trying to push for gun control.

Amid this surge, the FBI reported it conducted nearly 2.4 million background checks during May — the third-highest ever total for that month.

“Background checks for firearm sales remain strong. May marks 34 months that background checks for the sale of a firearm exceeded 1 million,” said Mark Oliva, spokesman for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, which represents gun manufacturers.

Oliva added, “Americans continue to buy firearms for personal safety. These gun owners are law-abiding Americans who use their firearms for lawful purposes daily.”

Of those purchasing firearms in America, Oliva says the vast majority are responsible gun owners who “reject the attempts by special interest groups to paint them with the same broad brush as those who criminally misuse firearms.

“The tragic events in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas, are sobering reminders that there are those in our society who have no respect for the law or innocent lives. Every law-abiding adult American has the right to defend themselves and their loved ones against that evil.”

Biden hasn’t figured out that this is one of the reasons why so few people are interested in more gun control.

The American people want to be able to protect themselves.
