Each time there’s a mass shooting, the left takes to the streets with picket signs and demands we fork over our boomsticks. Each time, they become bolder in their quest. While originally, leftists were calling for “common sense” gun measures, now they’re squealing for us to repeal the Second Amendment entirely. Big mistake.
In fact, the left’s push for and end to gats is actually inspiring people to get strapped:
People are surging to sign up for training to carry concealed weapons in the wake of the Parkland school shooting, as experts say sustained media coverage and calls for more gun control encourage people to look for ways to protect themselves.
Gun sales also appear to be on the rise, based on federal background checks.
The National Carry Academy in Minnesota says the number of people in its concealed carry courses has increased more than 200 percent since the Valentine’s Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. The company said it was the biggest jump since the 2012 school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
Stay quiet for a moment and you’ll be able to hear the left collectively screaming “OOPS!” at the monster they’ve created.
Unbeknownst to the left, they’re the greatest gun salesmen around. If they had even a basic understanding of economics, they’d realize they’re the ones creating a demand for blasters and NRA membership. When there’s a fear of guns becoming scarce, peeps will happily max out their credit cards with bulk purchases of ammo and AR lowers. People will take to the town in search of the nearest concealed class. Lead pellets will plink steel in greater numbers.
The real question is when will the left take a hint and learn to keep their anti-handcannon threats to themselves. Every time they open their mouths, they’re only making the gun “problem” bigger.
Congratulations, lefties, on being employee of the month at every gun store in the U-S-of-A. All the beers to you.
