Posted on 10/13/2019 5:07:09 AM PDT by marktwain
The National Instant background Check System, (NICS) hit record high levels in August 2019, for both total numbers and numbers of estimated sales after carry permit and permit rechecks were subtracted.
In September 2019, while the totals remain at record levels, the estimated sales fell to 88% of the record set in 2016.
In August, after permit and permit rechecks are subtracted from the total NICS checks, 1,239,014 remain. In 2016, following the same procedure, there were 1,229,022. The 2019 number is about 10,000 more than the record set in 2016.
These numbers are not precise numbers of sales, for several reasons.
The numbers of NICS checks done for carry permits and carry permit rechecks have risen to over half of all NICS checks in recent years. People with carry permits can purchase firearms, using their permit as the background check (the permit already had a check done when it was issued) in 25 states. The total numbers are skewed by Illinois and Kentucky, which do hundreds of thousands of permit rechecks every month.
If a person is purchasing more than one firearm at a time, up to four can be purchased with a single NICS check. A friend of mine just purchased four semi-automatic rifles for his daughters to learn to shoot on. Those four will count for one check. His daughters will be given a rifle as they show responsibility and proficiency.

As more and more people DEMAND more stricter infringeology. :-) Me thinks somebody be lyin’.
And, let’s not forget that some locales sell to CCW holders without having to do the NICS boogie. So, sales could be higher. Or transfers anyway if your subjected to intergalactic background check rules.
The store I work at sold 422 guns last Saturday.
Another 156 yesterday.
(We did have big sale going on)
New range in mid-Suburbia here is doing a booming business.
One of our freepers confirmed what I have been hearing since 2015... life long democrats are buying lots and lots of guns. He said they were low quality purchases... but the volume is enough to concern me.
Socialists with guns are the most dangerous people in the universe.
Prepare for the worst, hope for the best.
See this latest post:
Food for thought.
I have confirmed they have a socialist Democrats have been heavily arming themselves for at least 4 years. They can’t wait for a civil war, so they can declare American Citizens the enemy.
We don’t stand a chance... but what can you do.
What can you do?
Don’t believe that nonsense for a start.
It will be a bad conclusion for many.
“... life long democrats are buying lots and lots of guns. “
I think those life-long Dems now purchasing guns are actually closet Trumpsters.
With the Dem Party calling for much more gun-control, they would not be purchasing guns unless they are now voting for the side that wants to keep guns available for the American citizenry. Out of the voting booth I do think there are many Dems saying they side with the Dems; once in the Voting booth, I really do think it’s a different story.
...don’t stand a Chance.
Don’t be Mad,
We had a Good Run!
The evidence would suggest otherwise.. 2015. Mo, as I stated a freeper with a gun shop was just as concerned about their sudden interest in guns.
Their well financed and highly organized political brownshirting is as violent as it ever was.
True.. just shameful being part of the generations that allowed it.
The only solution:
as I stated a freeper with a gun shop was just as concerned about their sudden interest in guns.
Let em buy all they want. Unless theyre loading up on ammunition and training theyre just expensive clubs.
When their victims are unarmed, yeah.
Otherwise, not so much.
So you don’t think congress would suddenly invoke their war powers... you trust them more than i do. They have almost nothing between them and absolute control.
It’s different for me, as a Christian.. its always a matter of when will this or that country kill them off or drive them out.
Very interesting to learn how Christianity spread to siberia.
No, I do not see the congress declaring war on US citizens. If they did, they would be attaching targets on their backs, their spouse's backs, their children's backs, their friend's backs, and on the backs of every one who would be suspected of associating or agreeing with them. The US public would simply not accept or allow such a power grab.
.... you trust them more than i do
No, I do not trust them at all. I do not project more power on them than they have, either.
They have almost nothing between them and absolute control.
Over 100 million armed citizens disagree.

Born and raised.
My mother once spun the globe and asked me to place a finger on it to stop it.
She then said that wherever my finger landed, that area was, is, and will be contested, and kept by force of arms. "My guns, my borders"
Look around you, take a deep breath, and know that the majority will not allow them. Create and join off grid groups,and discuss scenarios, ideas.
Take heart, prepare for your contribution, and enjoy life.
Rural King.?? They sure sell a lot of fire arms in our area.. :)
