More Americans Exercise their Civil Rights by Buying a Gun

Welcome to gun ownership!

Approximately one-fifth of Americans who purchased guns last year were first-time buyers, according to new preliminary data from Northeastern University and the Harvard Injury Control Research Center.


The data also showed increases in the overall number of gun buyers and the total number of gun owners in the U.S.


Of the first-time buyers recorded in 2020, half were women, a fifth were Black and a fifth were Hispanic, according to The New York Times, which reported on the new data.


Last year’s first-time buyers were less likely than usual to be male and white, the Times noted.

    So, just 10% were angry white males.
    Kind of destroys the myth of who are buying guns.

  2. Le Roi du Nord

    Unfortunately for the purchasers, ammunition and reloading components are hard to find and very expensive.

    mar , could you point out where in the article “angry “ is mentioned?

  3. Mar

    I never said that was in the article, Le Roi.
    Funny, you want me to answer your question when you refuse to answer other people’s questions.
    What a pathetic hypocrite.

  4. Le Roi du Nord

    So then your previous comment was irrelevant, and unprovable, right?

  5. Tuerqas

    So Le Roi, are you trying to say that the liberal left has NOT been representing that the vast majority of guns are being purchased by the angry white conservative/Republican segment of the population?
    See, even though it is not mentioned in this article (because, duh, the facts in the article fly in its face) Mar’s comment is relevant because the angry white male gun buyer is the false stereotype that Dems are portraying as the greatest reason for gun control legislation. The facts in the article DIS-prove the liberal left meme, yet libs won’t stop pushing it and you’ll keep spooning it up. Repeat, repeat, repeat, the new Dem way. Today’s liberal is vastly made up of people who are told what to believe. For instance, you will continue to believe that all the guns, or at least all the bad guns are being bought up by angry white Republicans.
    And it works, so kudos to the Dem Party for thinking up the idea of first taking over the educational system, then picking up most of the MSM outlets.
    The meaning of the facts in the article concerning new gun sales and the conclusion a sensible person would make from it (that the Dem narrative on gun control is a complete fabrication) will sail right over your head.

    Ah yes, Le Roid, who prefers politicians with pedophilic tendencies so long as they are Democrats, still stupid after all these years. Here is an allegedly “scientific” article from a few years ago, Why Are White Men Stockpiling Guns?

    First result that came up when I Googled “Angry White Male Gun Purchasers”.

    t , mh:

    Having nothing to say of relevance, you make up lies about me. Have you both been drinking the same cheap hooch as mar, or are you that dishonest on your own?

  8. dad29

    T, MH: Don’t feed the troll.

  9. Mar

    Again, what lies, Le Roi, have they said?
    Defend yourself, man. Don’t be a coward, defend yourself.

  10. Tuerqas

    Le Roi: Having nothing to say of relevance, you make up lies about me. Have you both been drinking the same cheap hooch as mar, or are you that dishonest on your own?

    What lie did I say about you? Just because you don’t have any answers for just about anything I say, don’t start lumping me in with others. Keep your normal silence like usual, when I prove your words wrong. The irrelevance is you.

  11. Tuerqas

    Sorry Dad, I thought it was my turn.

  12. Mar

    Tuerqas, I don’t drink cheap hooch.

  13. Merlin

    What’s wrong with cheap hooch?

  14. Mar

    Nothing, my first drinks were Boones Farm and Gettleman beer.

  15. Mark Hoefert

    Roid has me confused with the other Mark on this blog – the one who sounds like he is blogging drunk.

    It is my considered opinion that within a few days, week at the most, Roid will be handed his ass on a platter by the likes of Mar.

    Fauci’s “retirement” is imminent. Receipts are being compiled. His ticket is being punched.

    Here is a typical Roid/Mar exchange from the archives.

    Odd that anyone would make the ridiculous claim “Fauchi is chief Liar…”

  16. Tuerqas

    Haha, yeah Mark. The most common liberal political argument. Fauci is not a liar because someone else (Trump in this case) lied more. The science of this debate is settled, look over there!!! If only a great wind could blow away the straw man party.
