There were indications that sales of guns and gun components were up headed into the Christmas holiday. Many took to social media to show off the presents they received including owners of new guns who posted tweets and images of themselves holding their firearms, many of which were AR-15s.

Most of these were shared on Twitter:

A tweet from the left-wing writer Sunny Hundal about a 10-year-old receiving an AR-15 has been retweeted more than 100 times. The article by Hundal on Liberal Conspiracy has been tweeted many times as well with users adding words like “morons” and “idiots” to their tweets.
