One thing Obama will be remembered for as president is that he was the nation’s top gun salesman. People have been so scared of Obama and Democrats trying to take gun rights away that they’re buying more of them than ever.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Year of the Gun: Record 13,829,491 sold this year, June breaks sales high by 600,000
Driven by the 2016 presidential campaign and anti-gun efforts in the White House and Democratic circles, guns sales hit another all-time high in June — and 602,428 higher than June 2015 — according to FBI background check information just released.
There were 2,131,485 background checks done in June, many more than the 1,870,000 done in May, which was also a record-selling month.
So far in 2016, the FBI has conducted 13,829,491 checks. That is an all-time high for the first six months of a year. Last year, which saw record sales, some 10,466,243 were done in the first six months. This year also recorded the highest ever number of checks in one month, 2.6 million in February.
Gun sellers say that the background checks done through the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, are a good gauge of sales, though considered a conservative count because they don’t include all sales and trades.
June was the eighth month in a row of record NICS checks.
You can’t blame the American people for being worried. After every single national tragedy, Obama and other Democrats immediately start pushing gun control as the only solution.
