A 2021 National Firearms Survey shows an estimated 3.5 million women became new gun owners from January 2019 through April of this year, Fox News reported.
To put this number in perspective, about 4 million men became new gun owners over the same period.
The outlet added that this study that polled more than 19,000 adults shatters normal statistics for women gun owners which, for decades, previously represented about 10-20 percent of total gun ownership.
This comes after federal background checks for gun purchases hit an all-time high in 2020, peaking at 21 million, the National Shooting Sports Foundation reported. Gun sales continued to skyrocket in 2021 after Joe Biden, known gun control advocate, took office.
As it turns out, women are just as concerned as men about their safety considering the state of the country last year amid unprecedented government lockdowns, violent race riots plaguing America's inner cities, a surge in uncontrolled illegal immigration, and now, the Biden administration which is extremely anti-gun.
Fortunately, as women continue to use their right to bear arms as guaranteed in the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the federal government will find it increasingly difficult to ever disarm the American people.
