Most firearm retailers have seen a drop in gun sales over the past year, due to the election of Donald Trump and a Republican-controlled Congress. One has to wonder if the renewed talks of passing more gun control laws by many weak Republicans as well as Democrats will help spur gun sales across the nation. Remington is hoping that will be the case and help them from being forced to file for bankruptcy.

The decline of gun sales is hurting retailers like Dick’s Sporting Goods, but the company has admitted that since they enforced a company-wide age restriction on the purchase of any firearm that their sales have dropped even further.

I challenge them to answer one question – how many school shooters have there been between the ages of 18-20 who legally purchased the firearm(s) they used in the shooting, other than Nikolas Cruz?
