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.
