2020 Gun sales shatter records amid a year of riots & election unrest

gun sales in us rise coronavirus

More Americans decided to exercise their Second Amendment rights this year than ever before—following months of violent rioting, election unrest, and lockdowns.

A new report by Just the News spells out the sheer number of Americans who purchased guns this year.

The FBI reported the largest number of background checks conducted in its history and the “highest increase of checks year-over-year in over two decades.”

The FBI background check database National Instant Criminal Background Check System saw the busiest November in history with over 3.6 million checks conducted over the course of the month—a 40 percent increase from last November.

In the month of June, the FBI reported a total 3,931,607 checks, almost hitting 4 million for the first time ever.

The FBI has recorded 35,758,249 checks so far in 2020, a number that is already beating 2019 by 26%—which saw nearly 28,400,000 background checks.

“Gun sales have been high and steady this entire year, even during the [COVID-19] shutdown,” Peyton Galanti, spokeswoman for Colonial Shooting Academy in Richmond, Va, told Just the News, claiming that the record sales have been driven by “first-time gun buyers” and “people who never thought they’d own a gun.”

It doesn’t look like gun control will be a popular political issue in the near future.

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
