2nd Amendment Rally

The 2nd Amendment wasn’t a mistake and you’re seeing why now.

Your leaders are failing you and would-be tyrants are walking the streets, destroying, looting, burning, and doing violence for reasons that can often be considered arbitrary. The same people that would conduct hostile takeovers of city blocks are calling for the thin blue line that stops them to be defunded or disbanded and elected leaders are caving to their demands.

They aren’t just caving to them, they’re making excuses. Sometimes even cheering for them.

Americans have been watching this unfold and while the silent majority may be silent, you can tell where it’s been by the crater-sized hole it’s left in the stock rooms of gun stores, and as such, you can probably tell where the silent majority’s thought process is.

According to the Free Beacon’s Stephen Gutowski, America is about to break a record for the most gun sales in history:

An analysis of background check numbers by industry analyst Small Arms Analytics & Forecasting released on Wednesday indicates that more than 2.3 million guns were sold in the United States during June. That’s an increase of more than 145.3 percent over June 2019. It’s also up from the 1.7 million estimated to have been sold in May, the 1.8 million in April, and just shy of the all-time monthly record of 2.5 million set back in March.

There have now been an estimated 8.3 million firearms sold in the United States since March—a record-setting pace likely to make 2020 the greatest year for gun sales in American history if the trend continues.

“Pretty much everything is out of stock,” Brandon Wexler, owner of Wex Gunworks in Delray Beach, Fla., told the Washington Free Beacon. “We have been doing it since the late ’70s and have never seen literally no supply available. As of last week, at all major distributors you could not get any guns. Everything was literally sold out. Can’t even get hearing protection.”

“Our sales were within just a few thousand dollars of doubling in June 2020 as compared to 2019,” said Rex McClanahan, president of Bud’s Gun Shop. “Popular guns and ammo SKUs have been sold out for some time and now it is becoming a challenge to keep anything in stock that is among the higher demand categories … things like handguns, home defense shotguns, AR/MSRs and the associated ammo, particularly 9mm.”

Gun sales in America act like waves on a shore. They may recede, but sales will inevitably return for one reason or another. Now you’re seeing something bigger happening. A tidal wave has hit and it’s going to flood the country with firearms in what can only be described as the largest practice of the 2nd Amendment in the history of this nation.

This is only bad news for a few people. For the gun-hating left, it’s a lot to start stomping your foot about. It’s especially bad news for the rioters and Antifa members who thought they would show up to the suburbs and attempt the same behavior at someone’s home.

Here we see what the 2nd Amendment was made for. The right to bear arms that shall not be infringed is going to be the last thing that keeps our civilization standing when the police have either vacated their post because city leaders abandoned them, or they were forced out because those same leaders terminated them after defunding the department.

When the police are absent or ineffectual, the citizens will step into that role and tamp down any attempts to subjugate or destroy innocent people.

In a way, you’re about to see a massive resurgence in support for gun rights. It’s a silver lining to this very dark cloud that we’ve been under for some time. The appreciation of having a solid means to defend yourself will put a lot of people at ease, and while it may take a few instances before rioters realize it, soon they’ll learn too.

You don’t screw with Americans. That was the message the founding fathers were sending when they created the 2nd Amendment, and that’s the message Americans are sending with their utilization of it now.
