Republicans picked up seats in the House (but still are the minority), and all eyes were on the two upcoming Senate races in Georgia (runoff is Jan. 5, 2021) that will ultimately determine who controls the Senate.

The election isn’t confirmed at the time of this writing, but there’s no doubt the outcome will be the major driver of sales in 2021, barring any additional unforeseen social or economic shocks. Even if the Republicans only lose a seat or two but still maintain control, a Democrat-held White House along with a blue House of Representatives will most likely result in more anti-firearm bills being introduced.

The media coverage of such bills alone will further drive demand based on the fear of future restrictions, even if the bills ultimately don’t pass. Likewise, if key Second Amendment-related cases go before the Supreme Court as expected, any outcome negative toward firearm rights will further drive sales.
