According to data from the Instacheck Unit of CBI, the office that handles statewide background check requests for any firearm transaction, the office approved 196,980 total background checks in 2008. In 2009, CBI approved 202,613, about half of which were handgun sales

I’ve been stocking up on ammo. Did Echelon pick that up for Napolitano, Hussein, and Pelosi? I hope so. Conservatives need to be ready if Civil War II breaks out. If we take the House and Senate back in 2010, armed struggle might not be necessary.

IOW- CBI updated their database 202,613 times with people exercising their 2nd Amendment right.
