New ATF Study: 423 MILLION Guns In Hands Of Americans

Violent crime rate has decreased by 48.6 percent in tandem with ownership rise

Newly released figures from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives shows that there are now a whopping 422.9 million guns in the hands of Americans. The number equates to 1.2 guns for every person in the country.

The figures also show that in 2018, 8.1 billion rounds of ammunition were produced by the gun industry.

The figures also reveal that the most popular firearm in the country is the much maligned sporting rifle, often mis-identified as an “assault rifle”, the AR-15 being one of the more popular models.

The findings highlight that there are now 17.7 million of them in private hands, a record high, and more than half (54%) of all rifles produced in 2017 were modern sporting rifles.

The ATF figures also reveal that firearms-ammunition manufacturing accounted for nearly 12,000 jobs in the US, creating over $4.1 billion in goods shipped in 2017.

“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 National Shooting Sports Foundation.

“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.” Bartozzi continued.

“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,” Bartozzi added.

Bartozzi also noted that “as lawful firearms ownership in America continues to grow, criminal and unintentional misuse of firearms is falling.”

“During the 25-year period covered in this report (1993–2017) the violent crime rate has decreased by 48.6 percent and unintentional firearm-related fatalities have declined by 68 percent.” he added.

One reason why the popularity of the sporting rifle continues to grow may be because it is routinely criticized and targeted in arguments for stricter gun control.

Justin Anderson of Hyatt Guns, one of the biggest firearm retailers in the country noted that “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.”

During a failed presidential run, Beto said on multiple occasions that he would ban AR-15s, and even go door to door to confiscate the weapons from Americans.

With a near record high of gun sales on Black Friday last week, Americans are sending a clear message in exercising their Second Amendment rights.

Judge Who Signed Off on FBI Raid Made Anti-Trump Posts

Shared content about ‘white privilege’.

The judge who likely signed the warrant authorizing the raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar A Lago estate previously made anti-Trump social media posts and shared content about ‘white privilege’.

Because of course he did.

Yesterday, it was revealed that Judge Bruce Reinhart had previously represented employees of convicted pedophile and sex trafficker for the elite Jeffrey Epstein.

Reinhart also donated to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign and gave money to political opponents of Donald Trump during the 2016 election, including Jeb Bush.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Facebook posts have now emerged illustrating how Reinhart has been anti-Trump from the beginning.

In one post, Reinhart praised former Congressman and civil rights activist John Lewis by quoting Robert Reich who said, “Donald Trump doesn’t have the moral stature to kiss John Lewis’s feet.”

Reinhart also betrayed his disdain for Trump by revealing that he tried to ‘ignore’ the then President-elect’s tweets.

In another post shared by Reinhart, the judge shared a viral video about white privilege from an account called ‘Woke Folks’.

Reinhart’s anti-Trump sentiments bolster Trump’s assertion that the raid on his property, carried out by “arrogant” FBI agents who even ransacked Melania’s wardrobe, was a coordinated political attack and a total abuse of justice.

“Biden Knew”: Trump Says FBI Raid Was “Coordinated Attack”

“We are no better than a third world country.”

Donald Trump derided claims by the White House that it had no advance knowledge of the FBI raid on his Mar-a-Lago estate, asserting that “Biden knew” about the “coordinated attack.”

Trump’s Florida home was ransacked by 30 federal agents, who searched the entire property, including Melania Trump’s wardrobes, in what critics have labeled a disgraceful abuse of power.

The White House initially responded to the raid by claiming they had no advance knowledge, an assertion that was ridiculed by some.

Trump himself has remained on the offensive and is now accusing the Biden administration of conspiring with the feds to plan the raid.

“A horrible thing that took place yesterday at Mar-a-Lago. We are no better than a third world country, a banana republic,” Trump posted on his Truth Social site.

“It is a continuation of Russia, Russia, Russia, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax # 2, the no collusion Mueller Report, and more. To make matters worse it is all, in my opinion, a coordinated attack with Radical Left Democrat state & local D.A.’s & A.G.’s.”

He followed up that post by asserting, “Biden knew all about this, just like he knew all about Hunter’s “deals.”

Meanwhile, a report out of the UK claims that a “disloyal aide” planted documents that would later be used by the FBI to frame Trump.

“They [the FBI] won’t come out empty handed,” said the anonymous source.

“As if Trump were stupid enough to do what they said he did. The only thing that could have happened is that a disloyal aid planted it in a box that was moved out in January of 2021,” he added. noting, “They wouldn’t have gone in without expecting a result.”

‘Serial Killer’ of Muslim Men Identified as 51-Year-Old Afghan Migrant

Narrative fail.

Published

on

Albuquerque PD

The suspect the media labeled a ‘serial killer’ of Muslim men in Albuquerque has been identified as 51-year-old Afghan migrant Muhammad Syed.

Now wait for the story to disappear completely.

On Sunday, President Biden tweeted about the murders, suggesting that they represented some sort of hate crime committed against Muslims.

“I am angered and saddened by the horrific killings of four Muslim men in Albuquerque. While we await a full investigation, my prayers are with the victims’ families, and my Administration stands strongly with the Muslim community. These hateful attacks have no place in America,” tweeted Biden.

And with much of the media no doubt waiting with sick anticipation for the killer to be revealed as a white man, they’re probably crestfallen by the revelation of the actual culprit.

Indeed, tweets by major media outlets refused to name the suspect, with CNN merely calling him a “51-year-old man.”

After police in Albuquerque received tips from the Muslim community about the suspect, officials announced that Muhammad Syed had been taken into custody.

Syed, a Sunni Muslim, reportedly targeted the victims because he was angry over his daughter marrying a Shiite Muslim.

“The White House and media was praying for the killer to be a white vigilante so they could advance their “white extremist” narrative,” comments Chris Menahan.

“Instead, it appears this is just another one of many interpersonal ethnic conflicts we’ve imported into our country in order to “make it stronger.”

“Is Biden going to travel to Albuquerque to condemn “Muslim extremists” like he did with the “white extremist” shooting in Buffalo or is this another visit he’s going to skip like we saw with Waukesha?”
