Only 110K this year?

I suppose in California they think that's a lot but they have a long way to go to catch up with Texas...

The pandemic may be part of it, but I'm gonna guess both "emboldened racist nutbags" and "administration bloodthirsty enough to cackle about a quarter-million deaths" also figure prominently for a lot of buyers.

"About 110,000 Californians have bought a gun since the coronavirus arrived, study says"

Is that all? That's .3% of the population, and half of them already owned guns?

First, a "study." Not science.

Second, buying guns has nothing to do with the corona. Even the most dimwitted person knows that a gun won't protect you from infection.

So... why are people buying guns?

I'm sure riots, looting, burning, and sharp increases in crime had nothing whatsoever to do with it.

Not sure what you expect.
You sell fear on the small screen non stop for a year, people are going to get concerned about their safety.
If people are concerned about their safety and you run on a "defund the police" platform, people will find the means to defend themselves.

/Might be a good time for the dnc to rethink its support for gun control.

Fairly sure "rioting in large cities" is getting up in the reasons as well... LOTS of new gun buyers.

You know in Switzerland all men fit for service between 18 and 34 are actually given guns by the government and taught how to use them.  But you know those crazy Europeans, they're more backwoods than the average Mississippian

Depends on your tastes. For me, it was a down payment on shop equipment for making custom guns.

My Son and Daughter bought me a gun for Father's day. Ammo has been sold out all 3 times I went to buy some. The range only had target rounds. I expected Bass Pro, Schiells, or Cabella's to have some...nope. All sold out of 45 rounds.

First, a "study." Not science.

Second, buying guns has nothing to do with the corona. Even the most dimwitted person knows that a gun won't protect you from infection.

So... why are people buying guns?


Reality:
1) The fear that it will get harder to buy guns in the near future (esp assault style rifles). <= That's the increase
2) Just normal purchasing cycle, see a gun you (I) always wanted at a decent price...  <= That's me.

Shock:  Ammunition prices have gone way way up.4x maybe even 5x of what I paid a few years ago.

Now personally, I've never had a need or want for an assault style rifle, but they seem to be getting harder and harder to get in my state.  If I can find one that is accurate enough (my thing is target shooting), I will add it to my list to Santa.  Desert Tech MDX?

I read a post somewhere today that claimed there were "200 million armed hunters" (as opposed to unarmed hunters?) in the US and that there were another 50 million who had guns but weren't hunters.

I think it was on Fox News, but it could have been somewhere else.  Do these people even realize how blatantly wrong their lies are before they tell them?

From my cursory googling, about 72 million Americans said they owned guns - There may be a few who are too paranoid to admit to pollsters that they owned them, but I'm sure it's not 180 million.

I'd expect them to stop beating up black people carrying signs and respond to your 911 call.
