New, First-Time Gun Owners — More Support for 2d Amendment?

CCRKAB Hopes Millions of New Gun Owners Can Aid Second Amendment Battle
First concern over the COVID-19 pandemic spurred a huge increase in gun purchases. And the civil unrest, rioting, and looting that followed the death of George Floyd caused countless citizens to seek armed self-protection. COVID-19 and the riots convinced millions of Americans to become gun owners for the first time. These citizens wanted to protect their families, homes, and businesses. The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA.org) hopes that these new gun owners may aid the fight to preserve the Second Amendment and gun rights in the USA.

“Look at all of the new people who suddenly decided to exercise their Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms”, observed CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “We’ve witnessed something that is nothing short of a sea change… about gun ownership. We’ve heard anecdotal reports from all over the country about people flocking to gun shops who had never before owned a firearm. Now that they are gun owners, we expect them to be very protective of their rights”.

March, April, and May 2020 saw record numbers of background checks, according to FBI data and information from industry sources. For example in April 2017, gun sales set an all-time record — up 71% from the pervious year.

Gottlieb added: “We welcome all of these new gun owners to the firearms community… many of them are minorities, especially black and female citizens … from all age groups. They can… gain a new understanding of our efforts to protect the one fundamental right that actually protects all of the other rights.”

“This new wave of gun owners could become a formidable force during this year’s election,” Gottlieb noted. “From now on, we expect millions of new gun owners to pay closer attention to candidates, and reject those who would trample on their Second Amendment rights. With legions of new gun owners ready to protect these newly-discovered rights, it could be a pretty scrappy election year…”

GunTalk Radio — Armed Security in Times of Civil Unrest

Joe Biden Beto O'Rourke gun control AR15 AR-15 second amendment Tom Gresham Gun Talk coronavirus

There’s a good episode of Gun Talk Radio this Sunday 6/7/2020. In recent days we have witnessed mass protests, rioting, arson, looting, and even murder in the streets. We have also seen business owners successfully defending their property. The unfolding crisis of urban unrest and violence have certainly caused Americans to consider armed self-defense.

Protecting your family, home, and property during crisis is the focus of Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk® Radio this week. This Sunday, Tom talks with security expert Wayne Black about current events — the rioting and violence. Black talks about training for first-time owners, and explains how best to protect yourself and your family in the case of a riot. Notably, some armed business owners have had success defending their stores — much like the Korean store owners did during the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles. Listeners can call to talk with Wayne and Tom about self-defense and armed security. Call 866-TALK-GUN with your comments and questions, and range reports.
