(CNS News) -- Gun sales were still up in December compared to one year ago and the numbers show there were approximately 23 million gun sales in all of 2020. However, the large increases in gun sales last year seem to be slowing down.
In December 2020, there were 2.1 million firearms sales, "a year-over-year increase of 24% from December 2019, and about half of the November year-over-year increase," reported Small Arms Analytics & Forecasting (SAAF).
"While December 2020 continued the year’s record-breaking pace – summing to almost 23 million units – December’s 24% year-over-year increase was by far the smallest such monthly increase since March 2020," said SAAF Chief Economist Jurgen Brauer.
In November 2020, there were also about 2.1 million gun sales, "a year-over-year increase of 49% from November 2019," reported SAAF.
