The well-known website Tacticalgear.com has elaborated the US gun sales surge of 2020, condensing data into a series of easily understood, interesting infographics illustrating the national and State-by-State trend: let's have a look!
The year 2020 saw firearms sales in the United States hit a historically unprecedented record.
With the uncertainty caused by the nationwide unrest, violent protests, and the Federal elections seeing the victory of an outspoken anti-gun candidate, Americans bought more guns, ammunition and accessories than ever before in their history. The increase was particularly marked among minorities, and over 40% of Americans who purchased firearms in 2020 were first-time buyers. For all intents and purposes, what happened in 2020 in the US was a turning point for the firearms industry and market.
Today, the well-known website Tacticalgear.com offers an in-depth and interesting analysis of this record year: breaking down the public data from NICS – the FBI-managed National Instant Criminal Background Check System to which a query must be submitted every time that a FFL holder sells a firearm in the United States – the website has come out with an elaborated series of infographics concerning the 2020 gun sales surge.
The Tacticalgear.com's infographics are surprisingly well researched and studied, offering a comparison of the 2020 gun sales spike with the trend of the past decade, as well as a State-by-State look – with some surprises, such as anti-gun fief California ranking third nationwide for gun sales! – and an analysis of the distribution of gun sales by region, plus an estimate of gun sold per 100 adult inhabitants all through the Country.
Truly a useful resource, solidly based on official data, for professionals – in all fields, from marketing to media! – to tap into in order to conceive solid strategies for the future or to provide the general public with a coverage and an analysis of the phenomenon that's as accurate and unbiased as it could ever be.
