July Continues String Of Record-Setting Gun Sales

posted on August 4, 2016

For the 15th straight month, a new monthly record has been set for FBI firearm background checks. Nearly 2.2 million checks were processed by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) in July, far surpassing the 1.6 million background checks processed last July, and putting the nation on track to smash last year’s record-setting total.

With an adamantly anti-gun sitting president and an equally anti-gun candidate on the ballot, it’s no wonder Americans are choosing to exercise their right to keep and bear arms. Just this past weekend, in an interview with Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday,” Hillary Clinton again expressed her belief that the Second Amendment be “subject to reasonable regulations.” Of course, she also threw in her obligatory “I’m not looking to repeal the Second Amendment” campaign-speak. But with her history of lies, it’s no wonder Americans are planning for the worst should she be elected.
