Gotta get that fear spike in sales before Christmas.

How many more fear spikes until every idiot who impulse buys a gun out of panic has one?!?!

Do they just toss them out and buy a new one every panic?

The background check system is designed to be as broken and ineffective as possible.

On today's episode of "Fark Nightmare Fuel"

"More than 5% of the 5.86 million background checks conducted during those months this year were delayed past three business days, it showed. If an FBI background check takes longer than three business days, a gun dealer can sell the firearm to a buyer, under current regulations. That worries groups like Everytown because it means thousands of people prohibited by law from owning guns - such as most convicted felons - may have obtained them as the FBI background check was delayed."

The NRA has really gotten a bad rap these last several months in the media, I wonder how much its going to take to bribe major news sources to claim Biden is gonna take your guns like they did for Obama.

The current surge of first time buyers is largely to to the pro-crime stance by Democrats at state and local levels.  People are smart enough to know that slashing police budgets and refusing to prosecute crimes will lead to increased criminal activity, so they are taking the steps necessary to defend themselves and their property from harm.  Some people are thinking about the worst-case scenarios, sure, but most of those people already had some weapons available.

In their defense, they are a pretty good investment. Its pretty much the only thing you can still buy in this country that doesnt immediately lose most of its value the minute you walk out the door with it.

Well, except for land, but who the hell has enough money for that?

I made an NFA purchase in early 2018. It took over thirteen months to clear. I am left to wonder how long average wait times are now.

I know a few on the left that are looking to buy them. I think those on the right may have more guns simply due to the ammosexuals that amass 20 times more than the average gun owner and they would never share their 'precious' guns with anyone.

Guns dont have to be political. I support womens rights, decriminalization of drugs, gay rights, AND the 2A... I just like guns. Politics are about dividing people. If youre a bleeding heart liberal and you like guns, at least we can go shooting together even tho I wont vote for biden

According to the states, more than half of the purchases are being done by first-time buyers. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Also, you are aware, I assume, that there are well over 100mil gun owners in the US, and only a small percentage of those gun owners are republicans, right? Like, less than 1/3rd?

I purchased a handgun in Oklahoma a few months ago and I was expecting to be told to come back in a few days.  The background checks cleared in thirty minutes, I was in and out of the store in under an hour with my purchase (no ammo though, store was sold out of common calibers).

Crazy stuff.  I'm surprised they don't just hand you one when you cross in from any land crossing (except for Texas for obvious reasons).

people keep assuming that the people buying guns are all right-wing, and the people who own more than one are likewise. It's simply not true.

Since it's impossible to buy a gun from anyone other than a registered firearms dealer who has to run a background check, at least we'll have a list of all the felons with guns once the background checks get caught up, right?

Guess I'll tell the spouse that I'm heading to the PX next month and buying myself an AR-15 and a shotgun for my birthday.  I should start buying the ammunition for them this week.  I'm already stocked up on 9mm defender rounds.

Also, there's nothing silly whatsoever about self defense, especially in an age when calling the cops for help is more likely to get you shot than helped.

Yes, it is because of the pending Biden victory that people are panic buying weapons. Simple one line answer like all of life's problems. Like the Constitution: Freedom of speech and then uh, I dunno. Anything bad happens, Trump. Anything good happens, not Trump. Is simple.

My dad has started to struggle with dementia, but he's still kept his sense of humor. He recently moved from Montana to Minnesota to he closer to me and my sister.

The last time I was over to his place, he told me that it was finally OK to take his guns.

"I know you don't own guns yourself, son, but you can have mine to help protect your family," he said.

"Protect them from what, dad? I live in the quietest, safest, suburb in Minnesota," I replied.

"Well, you never know when you might run into an angry cougar," he said.

"Dad, this isn't Montana, we don't have mountain lions here." I explained.

"I meant the hot Edina divorcees."

As much as I agree with your posts I don't agree here. Owning a gun or guns isn't silly. I own a shotgun to deal with poisonous snakes and other dangers when I used to live in a more rural area. I know plenty of hunters.

The belief that owning a gun will make you safe by default from humans is stupid. It is just a tool that can harm you as much as help you and best be trained with it. Even then could harm young and curious family members by having one.

The background checks are instant and they won't sell you a gun. Now, with a private sale you don't have to worry about all that nonsense. So... yeah.

As much as liberals are concerned about right wingers running amok and unchecked, it's bewildering why they want to let them have the monopoly on firearms. The 2A isn't getting repealed any time soon and it would be dumb to disavow a means of protecting simply because you find it distasteful.
