Big Gun … Big Bang … Big Recoil

The shooting range had a holiday party called “FULL AUTO SANTA” in which participants could shoot one magazine from one of two automatic machine guns. After shooting, a catered dinner was provided. Around 18-20 people took advantage of the opportunity to shoot the powerful guns. One gal who had never, ever shot a gun did a great job!

The gun had a toggle lever that could be set to OFF, SINGLE or AUTO. I did fine with the single shot but didn’t have my feet braced enough when I switched to AUTO. Fortunately the range’s gurus were there to guide and CATCH us. 🙂

It was really FUN!!!!!!!!!

Ohio NCIS Background Checks Up 20% vs 2014

EDIT: See Year-End Update Article

In October, I posted info on the increase of NCIS Background Checks performed for people purchasing guns. The number of requests has increased substantially since Obama became President, due to his well-known goal of eliminating guns, thus violating Americans’ 2nd Amendment rights. Every time he brings up the topic of gun control, sales of guns increase. Just recently, it was published that gun sales on Black Friday shopping day had the most background checks EVER for a single day. (The number of background checks do not indicate the number of guns sold since multiple guns could be purchased under one background search.)

I’ve updated the three charts to include Oct-Nov data now available on FBI.gov. The upward trend continues.

October NCIS background checks up 23%

EDIT: See Year-End Update Article

The October numbers have been released for NCIS Firearm Background Checks and the number of checks for the month are up 23% vs 2014! Obama recently said in an interview that one of his goals before he leaves office is to get rid of guns. Both he and Hillary would like full gun confiscation as Australia did. Doubt that will be achieved since it goes against our Constitution’s 2nd Amendment. Some people are saying it would result in another Civil War. There’s simply too many gun owners!

The following chart shows Annual NCIS background checks. The 2015 data is YTD October. Projections are that 2015 will exceed the previous high in 2013. (Red equals Obama’s tenure.)

Annual NCIS Background Checks

This chart shows NCIS background checks by month for 2015 vs 2014. The total for Oct 2014 was 1,603,469 versus 1,976,759 in 2015 for a 23% increase.

Background checks increase since Obama

EDIT: See Year-End Update Article

Yesterday we had another shooting in a gun-free zone. Naturally Obama immediately called for more gun control laws. During his seven years in office, every time he does this, gun sales increase. The gun industry has named him their Top Salesman. Requests for NCIS background checks has increased substantially since Obama took office. (The number of background checks does not equate to number of firearms sold).

I compiled these charts from the data available at FBI.gov. The following chart shows National background checks by year since 1999. Red equals Obama’s tenure.

I have a new hobby

After talking with several of my neighbors, I decided to take up a new hobby – shooting. I Googled-searched for info on guns; watched lots of videos comparing brands/styles; took a beginner’s handgun course; rented my two top choices several times; then selected a Glock 19 Gen 4. I’m still getting the hang of it, but at least I put most of the ammo near the center.

Granny get your gun!

Have you heard that Obama has been the top salesman for gun manufacturers. Every time he tries to take guns away from a specific group, or tries to ban a specific weapon, then gun sales increase. It angers me when I hear someone want to control gun ownership and they have bodyguards surrounding them. YOU FIRST!!!! Get rid of their gun-carrying bodyguards THEN tell us we have to give up guns.

The last four months have seen record background check requests. (These numbers don’t indicate gun sales since a person can buy multiple guns with just one background check.)

  • MAY: 1,580,980 – an increase of 100,000 over May 2014
  • JUNE: 1,529,057 – an increase of 150,000 over June 2014
  • JULY: 1,600,832 – an increase of 200,000 over July 2014
  • AUGUST: 1,745,410 – an increase of 200,000 over August 2014

Earlier this summer, Obama made a statement that he would like to “TAKE” guns away from anyone receiving Social Security if they “can’t balance their checkbook”!

I decided it was time for me to arm myself because America is becoming a really crazy place, so I signed up for a beginner’s training course at Blackwing Shooting Center. Class size was limited due to indoor shooting lanes, so there were only 10 of us taking the 3-hour course. Six of the 10 were like me … senior citizens. Glock 19 Gen 4

I’ve done LOTS of research, watched LOTS of videos comparing brands, and rented my final two choices several times to make sure I liked and could handle the gun comfortably. I passed the background check and now am a proud gun owner. I’ll be in the statistics for September!

PROTECT OUR 2nd AMENDMENT RIGHT because it protects your 1st AMENDMENT RIGHT!
