Do ya think it could be the coronavirus pandemic, or maybe the George Floyd riots?
FoxBusiness–Gun sales spiked more than 80 percent year over year in May as consumers responded to safety concerns and civil unrest prompted, in part, by the novel coronavirus pandemic, experts said.
Approximately 1,726,053 guns were sold in May – a record-breaking 80.2 percent increase from last year, according to data released late Monday by Small Arms Analytics & Forecasting, which examines the raw data obtained from the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS.
Perhaps the idiom, to shoot oneself in the foot, has overtaken a much older saying which has slowly grown out of favour and is becoming obsolete. Hoist with own petard Fig. to be harmed or disadvantaged by an action of one’s own which was meant to harm someone else.

As reported by The Daily Caller, “[the] RITE AID Shooter Self-Identified As Transgender Male.” This ‘individual‘ brings to the fore a whole ‘nuther dilemma for the bean counters that make “lies, damned lies, and statistics” their chosen career . It’s gets complicated….
A friend of the woman who killed three people in a mass shooting in Maryland Thursday revealed that she identified as a transgender male.
Authorities identified the shooter who killed three people and wounded two others at a Rite Aid distribution center in Aberdeen as a 26-year-old woman named Snochia Moseley. While both the police and court documents identified Moseley, who worked at the distribution center, as biologically female, Troi Coley, a high school friend of the shooter, revealed that she identified as transgender in as early as 2016.
