    Record gun sales checks in 2019, NICS at all-time high: FBI

    Record number of American citizens are taking advantage of their 2nd amendment right!


    Record gun sales checks in 2019, NICS at all-time high: FBI

    Record gun sales checks in 2019, NICS at all-time high: FBI

    FBI gun background checks, linked closely to weapons sales, recorded the second-highest month ever in December, propelling 2019’s count to the most since the National Instant Criminal Background Check System began in 1998.

    The agency said Monday morning that it recorded 28,369,750 background checks in 2019, a 3% jump over the last record set in 2016.

    In December, there were 2,936,894 NICS checks, the second-highest month ever.

    Overall, NICS checks were up 831,077 over 2016. The system conducts background checks for those buying weapons and seeking carry permits.

    What’s more, with the 2020 election just 11 months away and all Democratic presidential candidates pushing gun control agendas, it could be another record year of sales and NICS checks, especially if the contest is close.
    Attorney General William Barr: “The fact of the matter is that, in waging a scorched earth, no-holds-barred war of 'Resistance' against this Administration,
    it is the Left that is engaged in the systematic shredding of norms and the undermining of the rule of law.”

    So perhaps a ban on guns is no longer seen as impossible ?
