New York is on pace to record its second-highest level of annual gun sales ever as 2021 draws to a close.

Field & Stream reports that “FBI pre-sale background checks indicate that New Yorkers are on pace to purchase their second greatest number of firearms since the NICS (National Instant Criminal Background System) check program went into effect.”

The Hudson Valley Times Union looked at background checks for gun sales from January 1, 2021, through the end of November and noted: “There have been 425,778 firearm background checks in New York in the first 11 months of 2021, far surpassing pre-pandemic gun-buying levels in 2019, when the FBI reported 355,374 total firearm background checks in the state.”

Mid-Hudson Sporting’s Steve Meyen spoke to the surge in gun sales, saying, “The increase in new shooters has been astronomical.”
