A record 14,033,824 NICS Instant Background checks were performed in 2009. This means that after the denial process takes place, some 13,753,147 guns were sold by FFL dealers alone to United States residents. That does not include private sales.

The FBI, which administers the NICS system, says that the historic denial rate as a result of the checks is under 2%.

Sales began to skyrocket in September, 2008 when it became apparent that Barack Obama would win the Presidency.

Is it coincidence that the FBI has reported that the national crime rate dropped 10% during the same period of the highly publicized run on gun purchases? Mayor Bloomberg credits New York City's Crime rate drop on tough gun laws and.....

It also doesn’t include those of us that live in states that don’t do background check on purchases by concealed handgun license holders.

“Mayor Bloomberg credits New York City’s Crime rate drop on tough gun laws.”

Yeah. Tough gun laws which have no effect whatever on criminals, but are designed to prevent law abiding individuals from owning a firearm. Like all would-be dictators, Bloomberg fears the people, not other thugs.

So less than 1% denials, and how much is this costing us?

Where’s the corresponding “blood in the streets?”

I thought more guns meant more mayhem.

That doesn’t take into account the number of us who bought guns to try out and then maybe resold them privately to get something else.

Sort of like buying a new car every year – you want to get the latest and greatest.

Problem is you end up with all this paperwork that makes the Feds think you have more than you do.

Or person-to-person private sales, in some states.

Here in Washington just about any Yayhoo could walk up to me and ask and buy a gun, afaik the only legal requirement on my part is I can’t do the sale if I have any reason to suspect the person would fail a check.
Felon, domestic abuse, dishonorable discharge, mentally unfit, drug abuser, that stuff.

I dug deeper into the stats in the article. Check this out: of the denials since the unconstitutional Brady Law went into effect:

Illegal Unlawful Alien 3,978,988 69.96%

Are you getting this? 70% of the DENIALS under the Brady Law are due to ILLEGAL ALIENS! If we had any actual border control, 70% of the denials would go away.

That also doesn’t take into account the number of Localities where you can use a CCW permit in lieu of a NICS check to purchase a gun, just sayin.

Simple cause and effect. A marxist sneaks into the white hut and gun sales go ballistic.

It also misses multiple guns sold in one transaction, and states where some CHL holders are exempt from the background check.

“I dug deeper into the stats in the article. Check this out: of the denials since the unconstitutional Brady Law went into effect:

Maybe the Bradys should start a Coalition Against Illegals Sneaking Into America.

Its also relevant to note that a full 20% of all NICS checks taking place since 1994, when Brady was implemented, were done in 2009. Thank you, Mr. Obama. Its no wonder there is a firearm and ammunition shortage in the stores.
