“Even as we head into the holiday shopping season, sales of firearms have begun to level off. September 2021 saw a more than 10 percent year-over-year decline, and new reporting from 24/7 Wall Street suggested that total 2021 sales could even drop below the 2020 annual figure. However, the sky isn’t falling, as some factors need to be considered. First, last month still saw sales of some 2.2 million units in total, exceeding every year prior to 2020. Moreover, for the first three quarters of 2021, firearms sales reached nearly 30.5 million — compared to 28.6 million for the same period a year earlier.” (10/07/21)
