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.”

Arizona State Senator Calls for New Election, Says Biden Electors Must Be Recalled

Rogers, who has been a public proponent of Arizona’s multiple election audit efforts, took to Twitter Thursday to voice her opinion that, following updates from an election audit many believe to be without merit, if Arizona is to “get this right” a new election must take place.

“I call for the Biden electors to be recalled to Arizona & a new election must be conducted. Arizona’s electors must not be awarded fraudulently…” she tweeted Thursday afternoon.

Leading up to her recall demand, Rogers had been prolifically tweeting about the Arizona state Senate update and briefing held earlier in the day on the progress of the Maricopa County 2020 election audit being conducted by Cyber Ninjas, a Florida firm that had no previous experience with auditing election results.

Rogers used her Twitter account to tweet and retweet dozens of posts questioning the legitimacy of the election and the transparency of the audit.

“I have heard enough. With the tens of thousands of ballots mailed without being requested, the over ten thousand people who voted after registering after November 3rd, the failure of Maricopa to turn over the 40% machines, the passwords that Dominion still refuses to turn over, & tens of thousands of unauthorized queries demonstrating how insecure the election was…” Rogers wrote.”

BOMBSHELL: Over 74,000 Mail-In Ballots Counted With No Record Of Being Sent Out, Verification Process Degraded To Nothing

ORIGINAL STORY @NATIONALFILE:

Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan said at a hearing before Arizona state senators Thursday that his election audit found more than 74,000 mail-in ballots that were counted in Maricopa County with no record of them being sent to the voters, and that the standard of verification for mail-in ballots dropped down to zero during the counting process. Logan is demanding the full library of mail-in ballot images from Maricopa County, which the county has not provided to him. Biden’s official lead in Arizona stands at only 10,457 votes.

“We have 74,243 mail-in ballots where there is no clear record of them being sent,” Doug Logan said. “And so we have 74,000 where we have them came back from individuals where we don’t have a clear indication that they were ever sent out to them.”

Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan stated that the standard of verification for mail-in ballots dropped considerably as the volume of the ballots increased. “We’ve had an affidavit that specifically stated that when mail-in ballots were received, that so many of them were received that the standard was reduced over time. They originally talked about, there was originally 20 points of comparison on the signature and then after some time they were told to go to ten points of comparison, then five. And then eventually they were just told to let every single mail-in ballot through,” Doug Logan stated, noting that Maricopa County is withholding mail-in ballot images that can be used as evidence. Former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett recommended re-subpoenaing those images.

‘We found thousands of duplicated ballots with missing serial numbers in Maricopa’…

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett testified about the difficulties his team is facing finding serial numbers to ensure duplicate ballots were only counted once. “We found, I would have to say, thousands of duplicate ballots where those serial numbers are not on them.  So it’s created great difficulty to try to match up a duplicated ballot to its duplicate.”

Senate President Karen Fann then asked: “If the corresponding numbers aren’t on there, how would you know if it was duplicated once or ten times?”

Bennett replied:  “You wouldn’t.”
