Gun sales have not slowed with Trump
Gun ownership has been a time honored tradition in America since before it was a nation. The Founding Fathers recognized the natural, God-given right of self defense, which they enshrined in the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights.
Gun rights activist and author of “The War on Guns,” John R. Lott, Jr., joined Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere today on “Pat & Stu” to discuss the surprising fact that Americans’ appetite to own guns has not slowed down with a Republican in the White House. It has been long observed that while Barack Obama was president, gun sales were consistently high, often spiking after a mass shooting. But with Donald Trump as president, those number have showed no signs of easing up.
Lott, Jr. ran through some surprising numbers, noting that concealed weapons permits among men have risen 22 percent while among women, it has been an astonishing 93 percent. The number of permits has also risen 30 percent faster with blacks than whites.
