(FinancialHealth.net) – American citizens take the right to defend themselves and their property very seriously. The Second Amendment of the Constitution ensures they are always able to do that. So, it’s no surprise many people are preparing to protect their families as the country burns around them.
Small Arms Analytics & Forecasting (SAAF) released firearms sales estimates for the country on June 1. The organization used data from the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) and found gun sales increased by more than 80% over the last year. Americans purchased roughly 1,726,053 long guns and handguns.
Americans have been anxious for a while now because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the riots have really amplified their feelings. Many are warning fellow citizens to protect themselves from the violent criminals who are destroying cities.
One thing I learned from the riots tonight
BUY A GUN NOW
The police cannot help you in times like this
You are completely on your own to protect your life & property
The police couldn’t even help themselves
It’s up to you now
Constitutional carry is fully necessary

This is great news. Americans need to make sure they are able to fight back in the case of an emergency. The police can’t always be there to save you, but your handgun can.
