In the age of George Soros’s appointed soft-on-crime prosecutors, woke lawmakers, and a society that is currently hyper-divisive thanks to Joe Biden and his friends in the mainstream media, Americans are rightfully feeling less safe in their own country.
Amid all that, Joe Biden has recently threatened to ban semi-automatic weapons, as police forces across the country are historically short-staffed thanks to Democrats’ support of “defund the police” policies.
Americans understand the significance of our second amendment rights and despite ample vilification from the government, are buying firearms to defend themselves and their family the more they feel unsafe and threatened by the government.
According to the latest study from the University of Washington, the number of daily handgun-carrying adults in the United States has nearly doubled in the past four years.
"In 2019, about 16 million US adult handgun owners carried handguns in the past month (up from 9 million in 2015), and approximately 6 million did so daily (twice the 3 million who did so in 2015)."

In 2015, the number of daily adults carrying a firearm on themselves was 3 million. The number grew to 6 million in 2019.
Self-defense was the main reason cited for daily carrying a firearm. 7 out of 10 people said they are concerned about their personal safety and are forced to carry a firearm.
The number has grown further. In 2015, 9 million Americans reported daily carrying a loaded handgun. The number has significantly grown to at least 16 million as of 2022.
Furthermore Americans owning handguns has also spiked across the country from 38 million to 53 million in recent years.
Joe Biden has recently announced a potential federal plan to ban “assault weapons” nationwide. Citing ridiculous claims like red flag laws are not being enforced throughout the country. Biden is attempting to pass this bill during Congress’ lame-duck session, just before Republicans take over the majority in the House.
What do you make of the Democrats’ attempt to ban firearms for law-abiding citizens and the uptick in gun ownership and daily carrying from recent years? Share your thoughts in our Facebook comments!
