    FBI Background Checks for Firearm Purchases Hit 100 Million


    The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the agency responsible for running the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), has announced the completion of the 100 millionth instant background check since the inception of NICS 10 years ago.

    FBI background checks are required under federal law for all individuals purchasing firearms from federally licensed retailers. These checks help ensure that those prohibited by law from possessing firearms do not acquire them, and the checks further serve as a strong indicator of actual sales.

    The NICS 100 millionth transaction corresponds with a 27.1 percent increase in firearm sales for the first quarter of 2009 over the same quarter last year.

    I helped with those stats.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    My family has bought five handguns since August 08. Four of those were since the election.

    And guess what, that doesn't count the guns purchased by Texas CHL holders, since when we buy a gun they don't do a NICS check any more.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
