21M guns sold in 2020, up 60%, women, blacks top buyers

The firearms industry had its best year ever as concerns over safety due to the coronavirus crisis, and political battles drove a 60% spike, according to the leading gun trade group.

In its final analysis of FBI background checks, the National Shooting Sports Foundation estimated gun sales at about 21 million, a huge 34% jump over the previous record set in 2016, another year where politics helped to drive sales.

Unique to last year was the surge in sales to first-time gun buyers, women, and blacks.

The group’s analysis said, “8.4 million people bought a firearm for the first time in 2020. That’s 40% of all purchases. This year’s buyer is increasingly diverse too. Forty percent of 2020’s buyers were women and the biggest increase of any demographic category was among African Americans, who bought guns at a rate of 58% greater than in 2019.”

Yale Doctor: I’d Pull a Healthy Kid From School Before Giving Them the COVID Vaccine

Last week the Biden White House rolled out a plan, ahead of FDA authorization, to administer the Wuhan coronavirus vaccine to children ages 5-11. The administration is moving forward despite the disease being low risk to children. 

“In anticipation of the FDA’s independent advisory committee meeting on October 26 and the CDC’s independent advisory committee meeting on November 2-3, today the Biden Administration is announcing a plan to ensure that, if a vaccine is authorized for children ages 5-11, it is quickly distributed and made conveniently and equitably available to families across the country,” the White House released in a “fact sheet.” “The start of a vaccination program for children ages 5-11 will depend on the independent FDA and CDC process and timeline, but our planning efforts mean that we will be ready to begin getting shots in arms in the days following a final CDC recommendation.”

California’s Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom also prematurely mandated the vaccine for admission to public schools.

But during an interview over the weekend with Fox News, Yale epidemiologist Dr. Harvey Risch explained why he’d rather pull a healthy child from school than give them the vaccine. 

“If the child has chronic conditions that make their risk appreciable, then there’s reason they should be considered for vaccination. Other than that if it were my child, I would homeschool them. Honestly, I would organize with other parents to take them out of the school and create homeschooling environments,” Risch said. “On the average the benefit is higher for homeschooling than it is for vaccination and being in school.”
