A Lot of Guns Being Bought

Gun sales are booming and a lot of new gun owners. Pandemics, riots, and talk of eliminating the police are selling more guns than Obama.

The NICS background checks statistics are interesting.

March of this year set a new all time record for the number of background checks in a single month.
Every month this year has set a new record for that month since the inception of NICS checks in 1998.
We are on pace to set a new yearly record of over 30 million background checks for the year.
Since it's start NICS has preformed 348,252,506 checks the current population is 329,771,658.

Here is a link to the NICS Firearm Checks: Month/Year chart:

348 million checks, and the estimate is there are 400 million guns in the country? I own dozens of pre-NICS firearms.

I've seen estimates from years ago of upwards of 800 million firearms in the country. The lower estimates we see published are really those the government knows about.

Iíd bet 800 million is getting closer.

Not really surprising. Lots of scary random victimization going on in addition to full on anarchy in places. It's got me considering if I should pick up more ammo/mags and maybe sell something to pick up a more defensive shotgun.

I have more than one and less than a hundred.
That is my standard answer and my wife finds it hilarious when someone asks "How many guns do you own?"
