According to New York Times, new gun owners are less likely “to be male and white.”
So does that mean that women are buying guns at higher rates than men? If so, that’s amazing! It’s time for women to have real empowerment and be able to protect themselves.
NYT referred back to data from Northeeastern University and Harvard Injury Control Research Center which pointed out that most first-time gun buyers were “women, a fifth were Black, and a fifth were Hispanic.”
Breitbart News spoke with National Shooting Sports Foundation’s public affairs director, Mark Oliva, about the modern gun buyer.
Gun buyers today are shattering the preconceptions that gun control continues to perpetuate. The bottom line is there’s no neat little box into which those who oppose gun ownership can fit today’s gun owner. Those notions were buried in 2021 when over 8.4 million people purchase[d] a gun for the first time. There was a 58 percent increase of gun purchases by African Americans in 2020 over 2019. Hispanic Americans increased gun purchases in the same time by 47 percent. Asian Americans purchased guns at a rate 43 percent higher in 2020 over 2019.
He added, “Firearm retailers reported in surveys that these new buyers purchases firearms overwhelmingly for concerns of personal safety. The bottom line is today’s gun owner includes younger Americans, more women, more minorities. Today’s gun owner doesn’t just look like the rest of America. They are America.”
