This Year's Gun Sales On Track To Beat 2015 All-Time Record

Last year proved to be a record one for gun sales. Over 23 million FBI background checks were conducted; that’s an all-time record. Given that President Obama decided to issue executive orders on gun control after the Christmas holidays, and the prospects of Hillary Clinton winning the presidency, that record could be shattered this year. In fact, we’re on track to break it. So far, background checks are up 36 percent this year (via Fox 31 Denver):


FBI background checks for gun purchases have surged by more than a third this year, compared to the first quarter of 2015.

It puts 2016 is on track to surpass last year’s record of 23 million background checks.

The FBI reported record monthly tallies for March, February and January. Background checks, also known as NICS for National Instant Criminal Background Check System, totaled 7,682,141 in the first quarter this year.

That’s an increase of 36 percent from the same period last year, when there were 5,644,866 background checks.

All I can say is, outstanding.
