Americans are buying guns … lots of them!

Twitter folks have given Obama a new moniker … Prezzy Stompyfoot to reflect his often childlike tantrums during pressers when he’s not getting his way. This week he did it again during his rant on gun control. Again he blames the gun rather than the people committing the crime. Someone said that’s like blaming planes for flying into the Twin Towers!

As usual, he’s prone to lies in order to push his political agenda. His big lie during his speech was that guns bought online don’t get a background check. Apparently he doesn’t bother to check the laws. Yes, you can buy a gun online but the LAW requires that the gun be shipped to an FFL dealer (Federal Firearm License). When the purchaser goes to the dealer to pick up the gun, he must complete the background info paperwork so the dealer can submit it to the NCIS computer check. The purchaser must pass the background check just like a person buying a gun from the gun store. Obviously the law doesn’t fit Obama’s agenda so he conveniently ignores the facts. “You can keep your doctor“.

Whenever Obama mentions gun control, guns sales increase. He’s been called “the BEST gun salesman EVER“. Sturm Ruger and Smith & Wesson stocks have increased over 900% since Obama took office. Glock, which is one of the most popular handgun brands, is not publicly traded so who knows what its sales are. There is no data that records the total number of guns sold. I’ve heard people refer to Americans owning 300 million. The only tracking data is via the FBI’s NCIS background check requests. Those requests are breaking records!

The end-of-year numbers are now posted to the FBI’s website so I updated my previous posts’ graphs. They reflect people’s fear of what is happening in America. People are afraid. The Mideast is in turmoil. Obama and DHS are moving muslim refugees into communities during the night by transport planes. FBI has said they can’t guarantee that these refugees aren’t ISIS. Even if they aren’t ISIS, their belief in Sharia Law is incompatible with our laws. Germany’s nightmare New Year’s Eve assault on women by 1000 refugee men is a reminder of that. The San Bernardino police were there within 5 minutes, but it was too late. As someone said on Twitter, he “carries a gun because a cop is too heavy”. The record number of background checks is indicating that a lot of other people feel the same way.

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.)

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.
