Record Gun Sales For 18th Straight Month

posted on November 3, 2016

In what will likely be a surprise to approximately zero A1F Daily readers, October became the 18th consecutive month of new record gun sales in the United States, as gauged by the number of background checks conducted. 

In October 2016 there were more than 2.3 million National Instant Criminal Background Checks (NICS) conducted, up about 400,000 from the same month in 2015, which was an all-time record for October. 

A new yearly record also looks likely for 2016. The more than 22.3 million checks conducted so far through October is less than a million below last year’s annual total of 23.1 million, with the two biggest sales months of the year still remaining. 

If the current pace continues, more than 29 million background checks will be conducted in 2016.
