For quite some time now, the Democrat Party has rallied behind an anti-gun agenda. Despite the rights of gun ownership clearly enshrined in the United States Constitution, Democrats want to make it as hard as possible to buy and own a gun.
However, as it turns out, the leftist anti-gun agenda is becoming increasingly more unpopular. With a Democrat president in office who is already antagonistic against guns and gun owners, more Americans than ever are recognizing the important rights of the Second Amendment.
Since the COVID pandemic and the Biden presidency, more people than ever have been purchasing firearms, even for the first time. As Breitbart News reports, women actually make up a sizeable percentage of first-time gun buyers.
The Rise of Female Gun Ownership
According to the Wall Street Journal, since 2019, new gun ownership amongst women surged to the tune of 3.5 million. Meanwhile, new gun ownership amongst men comes to the tune of four million. 28% of new women gun owners are also black Americans as well.
As it turns out, Americans across the board are more eager than ever to exercise their Second Amendment rights. It’s not just because of the COVID pandemic or Biden being in office either. Violent riots across the nation in 2020, shutdowns, and the rise of reports of sexual assault have fueled gun ownership.

With the world becoming more uncertain and dangerous in certain regards, Americans are eager to protect themselves and not simply be sitting ducks for what may be coming. Permit applications for concealed carry are also going up as well.
All in all, the country is embracing gun ownership. This is a positive trend and ensures that bad people and criminals are not the only ones with firepower in their arsenal. Gun ownership amongst the masses is the ultimate equalizer.
Bad News for Democrats?
The rise of gun ownership, especially amongst women, is clearly bad news for gun-hating, gun-control-loving Democrats. Even with the 2022 midterm elections coming up, Democrats are vowing to run on platforms that promote radical socialist gun control agendas.
With gun ownership surging in America, support for gun control is likely to decline. Moreover, leftist arguments in favor of gun control have been repeatedly debunked. Gun control doesn’t work; if it did, then there wouldn’t be violent shootings in Chicago, Illinois every weekend.

Gun free zones are nothing more than beacons for criminal psychopaths to do harm, knowing they will be the only ones armed with firepower. If Democrats continue on their crusade to take guns away from law-abiding citizens, they won’t be doing their party any favors.
