    Default ATF: 423M guns in America, 1.2 per person, 8.1B rounds of ammo

    ...and it's still not enough!

    America’s love affair with guns is only getting stronger.

    New federal data shows that there are 422.9 million firearms in circulation, or about 1.2 guns for every person in the country.

    What’s more, despite years of criticism of modern “assault-style” rifles such as the AR-15 and AK-47, there are a record 17.7 million in private hands, proving that it is the most popular gun around.

    And last year alone, the arms industry produced 8.1 billion rounds of ammunition.

    The figures are from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and were crunched by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the gun industry trade group.

    “These figures show the industry that America has a strong desire to continue to purchase firearms for lawful purposes,” said Joe Bartozzi, president of the NSSF, in a statement releasing the group’s new report.

    “The modern sporting rifle continues to be the most popular centerfire rifle sold in America today and is clearly a commonly owned firearm with more than 17 million in legal private ownership today. The continued popularity of handguns demonstrates a strong interest by Americans to protect themselves and their homes and to participate in the recreational shooting sports,” he said.

    Gun shops contacted by Secrets said that they are seeing more and more purchases of semiautomatic weapons such as handguns and AR-15s due to the criticism of those guns by 2020 Democratic presidential candidates.

    “Sales have definitely been brisk, especially of small, concealable handguns. We also saw a spike in sales of tactical rifles like AR-15s and AK-47s, for which I think we can confidently thank Beto O’Rourke,” said Justin Anderson, the marketing director for Hyatt Guns in Charlotte, North Carolina, one of the country’s biggest retailers.

    During his short presidential campaign, O'Rourke called for a ban on the rifles.

    Yeah but it's all owned only by a few hundred anti gov types per the super lefties, because 99.9% of Americans was more gun control.

    That’s some solid, responsible Christmas shopping right there.

    Forget Beta, he's now irrelevant. Now we got to worry about the idiots like Biden, Booker and Warren whose delusional fantasies of gun grabbing fly in the face of the reality of just how many guns are in private hands. These folks are seriously delusional to think these people are just going to willingly surrender their lawfully purchased and owned property at the whim of their party dictates.

    I'm not worried about any of them since they are a all talk and mostly stupid. Now Bloomberg he's a different story all together. He's used his money and influence to flip states solely for the purposes of gun control.

    This is a golden age of price vs. quality. Tons of competition in the gun industry = awesome innovative shit, low prices and the best customer service of any products out there.

    Cruzans is responsible for a good part of that number.
