Over the last year, over 5 million Americans purchased a firearm for the first time in their life. This was due it most part to the violence and unrest seen in many cities across America. The truth is, many of these purchases were made out of pure fear. Fear of someone coming to your door in an attempt harm you or your family. Fear of an angry mob accosting you as you simply try to drive to work or home.
In the last year Americans have witnessed violence on the news happening across the country that they’ve never seen before. And frankly, it triggered many to re-consider their safety and security as American citizens.
But owning a firearm is just part of the equation. If an event does occur, having a gun does nothing to protect you against getting shot yourself. This is where body armor comes into play. Based on body armor sales figures for 2020, it appears that millions of people recognized this and acted accordingly.
