Gun ownership is on the rise in America. News agencies reported about record-breaking sales in the lead-up to the presidential election, as folks -- worried about the possibility of Hillary Clinton in the White House -- stockpiled for the worst-case scenario. When Donald Trump won, sales eased off by nearly 20 percent, according to Mark Meckler, a columnist for Townhall Daily.
Black Friday, however, gave gun sales yet another spike. In fact, it broke the single-day record for FBI background checks in American history, coming in for a total of 185,713 background checks. That’s slightly more than two background checks per second.
So strike one for God-fearing Republicans exercising their Second Amendment liberties, right?
