I know a rather large gun dealer in Colorado, he says the excuses are all over the board, even that it is 50/50 liberal/conservative buying. People are simply “feeling” the need to be armed and even that feeling is all over the palce.
I know liberals who have purchased guns since 2008. And some of them wasn’t within the last year, but prior.
They vote with a “guilty” mind but reality says “protect yourself”
