There have been 65,376,373 background checks completed for Americans purchasing firearms since February of 2009, the first full month of Barack Obama's presidency.
According to data compiled by the FBI, the number of Americans purchasing guns has skyrocketed since Obama was elected.

In 2009, there were 13,984,953 background checks for Americans buying firearms. If we subtract the 1,212,860 checks completed in the month of January, the total checks for the year under Obama were 12,772,090.

For 2010, background checks totaled 14,320,489. In 2011, checks were 16,336,732, and in 2012, 19,463,832. Background checks for the month of January 2013 were 2,483,230.

This totals 65,376,373 background checks completed since President Obama's first full month in office, or 44,748 background checks per day!

Ya think?

Keep in mind that each background check could be for multiple gun sales on the same day.

Need I mention private sales?

The numbers are indeed telling!

That's a gun per head for 20% of the total population... and that's just the last four years of acquisitions! I wonder what it would be if one removed the elderly, infirm, prison mates, and children from the mix. Now add all the guns previously in circulation. Indeed - behind every blade of grass. Obama has certainly driven the population to take up arms at record rates.

...and more than 30 billion rounds of ammo bought, ( by my count....plus minus a few billion).

On the top shelf.
Who wants to bet that there will be another run on firearms tomorrow after "O's" speech... or dare I say diatribe?

A run on what? No guns on the racks, no ammo on the shelves, no primers if you want to do it yourself. Those who realize our predicament AFTER tonight's State of the Union are awakening a bit too late.

I can just hear it now: "The State of our Union....is strong." :vollkommenauf:
