TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY INSIDER: 'DEFUND THE POLICE' BACKFIRES AND SPARKS SURGE IN LOCAL GUN SALES!!!
Kansas City gun stores were once jam packed with enthusiastic customers looking to ensure home security and put their 2nd Amendment freedom into practice by purchasing a firearm.
Remember that we recently talked with an industry insider confirming this trend, today's observational analysis is also backed up by national data which reports gun sales rising at historic levels.
The FBI completed 1.6 million gun background checks last month -- a 75% jump from the year prior, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation.
To wit and according to a TOP ECHELON KANSAS CITY INSIDER who knows a thing or two about the gun game amid rising civil unrest . . .
THE KANSAS CITY GUN SALE SPIKE IS A CONSEQUENCE OF BLACK LIVES MATTER ADVOCACY AGAINST LAW ENFORCEMENT & 'DEFUND THE POLICE' OUTCRY!!!
Here's the word and the quote in italics . . .
Take the 'Defund The Police' movement at their word. They want resources directed away from current tactics used as a response to violent crime and redirected toward more social services and welfare. But where does that leave the rest of us who depend on law enforcement to protect our homes and property?
You're on your own.
If public safety is going to be so politicized that police are powerless to do anything that might spark another protest or riot, then people don't have any choice but to buy a gun or more guns and defend themselves.
There were people assaulted and killed in the recent Kansas City riot after George Floyd was killed by that cop, so don't try and claim all of the demonstrations were non-violent. This isn't a hypothetical scenario. For people living in the urban core, we were trapped as rioters took control of the streets. In that kind of situation the only defense is a constitutionally protected firearm that's a right, not a privilege, of every law-abiding American. So I can't criticize people who are seeing this scenario play out, watching police constantly criticized and deciding buying a gun. I bought a gun as well . . . To add to my collection."
Accordingly, continued protest and advocacy have once again created unforeseen ramifications as many protesters work to abolish law enforcement and unintentionally inspire another surge in the proliferation of guns throughout the United States and right here in Kansas City.
