I’ve updated the NCIS Background Checks charts for June 2016 (see far right side bar). The National Checks are up 32% YTD, while Ohio is up 35% YTD.
As I was reviewing the YTD numbers for other states, I noticed some rather interesting results:
- For Midwest states: Ohio’s YTD total is 442,360. Michigan’s YTD total is 303,537. But Indiana’s YTD total is 945,071! Those “quiet” Hoosiers are getting armed.
- California is a well-known anti-gun state with even greater restrictions just signed by Gov Brown. Even so, there were 1,147,934 checks done so far this year. By comparison, Texas only has had 859,659.
- The real surprise was Kentucky. 1,878,787 background checks have been done so far this year!
It should be noted that Background Checks are done when a person buys a gun but, depending on state laws, also when they apply for a concealed carry permit.
It’s been said that Obama has been the best gun salesman EVER! It appears he’s still doing a good job.
