    One-fifth of U.S. households purchased guns during the pandemic, a national arming that exposed more than 15 million Americans to firearms in the home for the first time, academic studies show.

    Americans purchased nearly 60 million guns between 2020 and 2022, according to an analysis by The Trace, a nonprofit, nonpartisan news organization that tracks gun violence. Yearly gun sales are running at roughly twice the level of 15 or 20 years ago.

    All the new weapons may be fueling a historic surge in gun deaths, which reached record highs during the same period.

    “It’s a totally different type of gun ownership now,” said John Roman, a senior fellow in the Economics, Justice and Society Group at NORC, a research organization based at the University of Chicago.

    “It’s not a rifle stored away somewhere that you take out twice a year to go hunting. It’s a handgun, probably a semiautomatic handgun, that you keep in your bedside table or in your glove compartment, or that you maybe carry around with you.”

    The COVID-19 pandemic triggered a run on gun shops, part of a larger national spasm of panic-buying that gripped the country at a moment when many Americans thought society might collapse.

    “There was fear, and real concern, about what happens to the country during a global pandemic,” said Nick Suplina, senior vice president of law and policy at Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun-control nonprofit.

    The National Rifle Association fanned that fear, Suplina said, by tweeting out a video of a woman holding a rifle and pushing firearms as a pandemic safety measure.

    “You might be stockpiling up on food right now to get through this current crisis,” the woman says. “But if you aren’t preparing to defend your property when everything goes wrong, you’re really just stockpiling for somebody else.”
    These people are pathetic. Repeal 2A.

    • There's also substantial risk to Dominion in going to trial. Risk of outright defeat. Risk of a successful appeal, or a total slap-down by this rogue SCOTUS. Dominion, as I understand it, is largely PE-backed, which means there was always a dollar threshold they'd accept. Fox met that threshold. The idea that a voting machine company was going to strike some victory for truth and democracy was always kind of naive.

      Plus, we get another round of this against Fox with SmartMatic, plus all the other lawsuits against all the other liars.

        Florida is “among the worst” states to raise a family, work and retire Former President Donald Trump’s campaign claims in a blistering rebuttal to the story Gov. Ron DeSantis tells about the state thriving under his leadership.
