Americans Still Exercising 2nd Amendment Rights

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.

People are arming themselves in record numbers

WOW! More records are being set with NCIS Background Checks! The February numbers have just been published showing that on a National basis, Jan-Feb 2016 is UP 42% over Jan-Feb 2015. Ohio’s growth is even larger – UP 54%! Several things are likely causing these increases: * Obama & Hillary anti-gun penchant * Increased fear of danger from illegals or terrorists * Anti-police rhetoric possibly causing police to pull back. People are purchasing guns as a new purchase or buying additional firearms. I’ve never seen any data of purchases by gender but based on what I’ve seen at the range, my guess is a high percentage of women are buying for self-defense. The classes I’ve taken so far have consisted of over half the class being made up of women “over 50”.

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.

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.

Glock 19 Gen 4Buckeye Firearms just posted an article that some Ohio Sheriffs are suggesting that citizens with Concealed Carry Licenses (CCL) carry their guns with them. They’re also recommending that gun owners obtain a CCL in case they need to protect themselves. Link to article.

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.
