April Marks 12th Straight Month of Record Gun Sales

THE SHEEPLE WOKE UP.

This April saw the most gun-related background checks of any April on record, making it the 12th month in a row to achieve a high water mark for gun sales.

The FBI ran 2,145,865 checks through the National Instant Background Check System last month, according to the agency’s records. That represents more than a 400,000 increase over the previous record set in April 2014. Though the numbers represent the best April on record, the month also saw the fewest checks of any month thus far in 2016.

The trend of record-setting months began last May. In that period the background check system has seen records set for the most checks in a day, month, and year. Thus far 2016 is on pace to pass 2015 as the best year on record for gun-related background checks.

The number of background checks is considered a reliable barometer for gun sales as nearly all sales made through licensed firearms dealers must by law include such a check. Some states also require a background check for gun sales between private citizens.

Such checks are not an exact metric for gun sales due to a number of factors. Most states do not require the checks for private sales. Many states require the checks during their gun carry permit processes.

“Based on varying state laws and purchase scenarios, a one-to-one correlation cannot be made between a firearm background check and a firearm sale,” the FBI noted on their background check report.

The record-setting streak has coincided with renewed calls by Democrats for new gun control measures. Both President Obama and Hillary Clinton, the presumptive nominee for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, have publicly expressed support for Australian-style gun confiscation regimes in the United States. Clinton has also told donors in private that she believes the Supreme Court is “wrong” about the Second Amendment.

Terror attacks on American soil and abroad may also be driving gun sales.

Gun rights advocates said calls for gun control from politicians such as Hillary Clinton have fueled the surging gun sales and believe the record levels will continue.

This is the issue that will lead to the defeat of hillary Clinton.

Likely will, yes. A new poll is showing Trump leading 6% over her, and that's before the general debates. ;)

People buying up all the guns, before they have to give them back. Makes perfect sense.

Polls be damned. They are almost entirely controlled by the MSM.

My point is that The right to bear arms by We the people has been fundamental to the American discourse since well before the American Revolution. We're not so cucked yet that a civil war wouldn't ensue over this issue if–God forbid–Clinton became President and mad an Australian-style gun grab for real.

Almost everyone who is awake in this country knows this instinctively and would purposefully strive to avoid it. That instinct will lead the majority of the country to reject Hillary Clinton over this single issue alone, quite apart from her abysmal and sketchy record in government office.

The regressive socialists dumbasses will vote for hillary, simply based upon their hatred for trump, just because they hate him so bad. They will come out of the woodwork to vote several times apiece just to keep him out of office.

Now that my children have grown up and moved on, I'm considering making a stand. But, I think the law abiding citizens will always follow the law, regardless of how silly or wrong the law is. It is why Americans agree to being extorted by the government for taxes. It is to prevent being put in prison or killed over not paying - even though we know our taxes help pay for greater taxation, more welfare and welfare programs that require more people to hand out more goodies to more whining lefties that vote for more and greater bigger government program that vilifies the wealthy.

This. I have talked face to face with many gun owners before. Liberal's don't seem to understand this, but there are a lot of gun owners who, if ordered to hand over their weapons, will not obey. I know several preppers personally. These are the type of folks that are ready for confrontation too. They expect hell to break loose, in fact that's all they ever expect. Good luck telling these guys to obey orders.

I'm sort of bummed cruz got his ass kicked. Even though he was a religious nutcase, he gets the question of Islam correct. He at least said we should consider taking only the persecuted christian refugees from the middle east, because we can at least have a pretty good idea they won't turn into jihadists.

I'm a Spirit-filled Christian user, but I certainly didn't support Cruz. I'm voting Trump.

And yes, the point is valid. "Donald Trump seems to show a healthy fear of Islam" as our Jewish brethren said of him. Trump will do far more to inhibit the Islamization of America than Cruz ever would have. Stopping non-citizens at the border is the first step, yet not one other individual has the balls to be politically-incorrect enough to do this.

BTW. I also hope Trump revokes George Soros' American citizenship. Soros is evil.

Putin banned Soros AND his NGOs from Russia, with threats of arrest if they ever came back.

I hope Trump does the same. I also hope we get the UN to move out of America too, good riddance!

Hi-points are decent guns for their price. They are the cheapest that will work.

Now if you wanted a sacrifice gun, hand them a shitty jiminez.

Just wait.
All the Cruzetards and Cucks will sit this election out and let Hillary win. Then she'll appoint 3 supreme court justices. The 2nd will no longer be an individual right and all future decisions will be 7-2, in favor of the gun grabbers.

Hi-Points are often seen as the shittiest American 9x19 ever made. I just shot a Hi-point .40 that was huge, and single stack. I felt unsafe in doing so.

@Boy_vs_Girl
I almost bought a Jiminez .380 from a pawn shop last year, but decided to wait until I got home to review them before jumping on it. I think I made the right decision to avoid that little disaster.

Back in the 1990's and 2000's, there was a handful of gun companies that revolved around Saturday Night Specials, basically injection-molded guns made from Zamak and priced at $100-200. Hi-Point was one of the few companies to both make a gun that wasn't shit and survive the Brady Campaign's lawfare long enough for the PLCAA to be passed.

Wow. Didn't know about that one but glad it's in place user. The SJWtard victim mentality was alive and well before even Obongo I see.

I'm surprised and auto manufacturers still exist today given such an insane legal history here heh.

@Methnerd
Thanks. I didn't know that. Since I love guns, but still feel fairly new to them since getting back into the states, I stuck with glocks, due to everyone saying how reliable they are. I've had great luck with glocks (and they're tinkerer friendly) but still expensive enough to keep me from owning many of them.

It's amazing what happens when you mix up black-on-black violence, a gun control group, and Californian civil courts.

It was suspected that Brady lawyers were just going around with the NAACP to find mothers who they could get on the stand and say "muh baby didn't deserve to die and it's Intratec's fault cuz their gun was used to kill him." Since it was a California jury, of course Intratec, AMT, and a few others would be sued into bankruptcy. It ultimately ended with Bill Clinton brokering the HUD/S&W agreements to avoid the Brady Campaign going after them next.

Whenever you hear about Hillary Clinton talking about the PLCAA, it's because her peers in the Brady Campaign have been kicking and screaming for the past 11 years about their favorite little toy being taken away from them.

She will follow the Australia model. She already praised it.
First black rifles are banned. Either register them, or ban them from transfer. NY and CA have already done so. Prohibit anyone in-state, even heirs, and that's that.
Give that a few generations and people will be accustomed to it. The destruction of southern values just increases it.
