Maybe Americans arent taking to Hillary Clintons sour attitude toward guns. Maybe theyre arming themselves out of concern about terrorists and criminals of a more conventional stripe. And maybe theyre showing what they think of members of Congress who use terrorists crimes as the excuse to push for more gun control.
One way or the other, though, Americans are continuing to acquire guns at an unprecedented level. The FBI reported this week that in June 2016, firearm-related background checks set a new record for any month of June, up 39% from the number of checks conducted in June 2015.
For the first six months of 2016, checks are up 32 percent over the same period in 2015. If the present rate of checks holds through December, there will be over 32 million checks conducted this year, more than double the number conducted during President Obamas first year in office. There have been 26.5 million checks during the last 12 months, more than in any 12-month period previously.
NICS checks dont precisely indicate the number of firearms acquired in a given time frame. But the trend in checks makes clear that Americans are acquiring firearms at a record pace. The annual number of checks has risen from 12.7 million during the last year of President George W. Bushs administration to an average of 23 million during Obamas second term.
NICS checks dont stop criminals from stealing guns or acquiring guns on the black market, and criminals defeat checks by having other people, who can pass checks, buy guns for them. But they continue to deliver data undermining gun control supporters perennial boast that gun ownership is declining. If anything, the data suggest that the opposite is true.
I’ve been busy since 1994 AWB. Much much busier after its expiration after 2004. I don’t need any more guns, or ammo for that matter. Come and effing get them.
Good now each buy 500 rounds. Get medical supplies and training in first aid, get a number of off road cyclists to act as cavalry, get a pilot with plane to act as spotter, get drones for looking ahead when a patrol sweeps certain neighborhoods, get body armor, helmets, communication gear etc. Lastly, get leaders and organize.

“...gun control supporters perennial boast that gun ownership is declining.”
When what is happening is that fewer gun owners are answering questions about their guns posed by anonymous callers whose motives are uncertain.
Googled this paradox; one HuffPo columnist huffed, “How dare they not answer truthfully! That’s being socially irresponsible, but what do you expect from a bunch of OFWG racist bigots!!?”
Picked up a Glock 19 just yesterday.
And in one 6 month period in the 1990’s, 600,000 people were hacked to death by Machetes in Rwanda.
I love mine.
Gen3. Only 499. Don’t need interchangeable backstraps......never really used them on any of my guns which came with them.
Galco makes a nice IWB holster for the G19.
I carry a G43 for summer, along with a Sig P238 and LCP for summer carry, depending upon what I am wearing. In the winter I usually carry a Kimber Ultra CDP. So for now, the G19 will be in the safe.
Sorry, but you don't make a lot of sense. But, you probably THINK you do. I'm sure you do your best.
What's with the "/s"? Seems you are in a bit of a hurry with your posts. There is no hurry and it NEVER hurts to THINK and re-read what you wrote before you post.
