Brady Campaign Whines About Record Gun Sales

posted on November 4, 2016

Brady Campaign president Dan Gross whined about soaring U.S. gun sales this week, attempting to link them to “threats of election violence.” 

“Americans are arming up for the election,” Gross claimed. “An industry CEO himself attributes the rising sales to the presidential campaign …” 

(Note: Similar warnings of blood in the streets at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland never materialized.) 

In fact, Gross and other anti-gunners make dire predictions of blood in the streets every time gun rights advance. Concealed carry, Stand Your Ground and Castle Doctrine laws were all preceded by warnings of a return to the “Wild West”—yet gun homicide has continued to drop for 20 years. 

The real cause of rising gun sales is the fear that a Clinton administration, with Brady’s support, would curb those rights—just as previous surges were spurred by Obama victories in 2008 and 2012. If Gross is alarmed, he has no one to blame but himself.
