Reported Biden Poll Lead Continues to Drive Gun Sales Across US
Though it’s getting little news coverage outside the 2A community, the issue of guns continues to shape the landscape of this presidential election. The specter of an ominous gun control platform hangs over the Biden-Harris ticket. And the Biden promise to clamp down on firearms is driving gun sales in a year where new gun ownership was already exploding like never before.
This past year has already seen gun sales grow in record numbers. First a global pandemic put the country on edge when runs on supplies sent many first-time buyers out to gun stores.

We will all need to be on our guard, constantly, as none of us will know when a dangerous situation might foment around us. In order to avoid that danger, we’re going to have to be looking ahead, seeing what may be coming. For that to happen, we’re going to have to have a very good idea of what’s going on around us. In other words, we’re going to need to have excellent situational awareness.

Food Shortages Hit China: There Is “not…enough fresh food to go around”
