Purely anecdotal but my dittohead older brother called me a couple weeks ago wanting me to give him one of my guns.
I explained I can’t do that legally; we’d have to do the paperwork through an FFL.
I also said the ranges are all closed so there’s no place to practice. He assured me he knew all about guns because he shot one back in high school.
And no doubt a lot of the buyers are liberals given that 80-90% of recent gun sales are first-timers.
