Monday’s Lobby Day protest in Richmond, Virginia, should mark a high point in the gun rights debate. It is, at least to my recollection, the single largest gun-rights rally ever. If there was a larger one–not counting the American Revolution–I’d be delighted to know about it.
My point, though, is that 22,000 people showed up to let the governor of Virginia and legislature know that they weren’t interested in gun control.

Ammunition - Shop - Upsurge - Ammunition - Sales
An online ammunition shop has noticed an upsurge in ammunition sales in Virginia recently.
AmmunitionToGo.com, an online ammunition retailer based in Houston, Texas, reports that they have seen a massive upsurge in their online traffic and sales in Virginia.
Company - Number - Virginians - Website - Percent
The company says that the number of Virginians accessing their website in 2020 has increased by 137 percent as compared to this time period in 2019.
“I doubt that any other businesses are affected as much by politics as firearm and ammunition manufacturers and retailers,” said Brandon Black of AmmunitionToGo.com. “We’re now seeing a massive number of Virginia shooters stocking up on ammunition in anticipation of new laws that they believe will make it harder to purchase rounds legally.”
Company - Sales - January - January
The company released its sales from 2019 to 2020 for January 1 through January 20:
The company notes that Virginia was one of the top 20 states, but has since soared to being one of the top five states for its sales.
I’m pretty sure...
