    FBI: March 2020 Firearm Background Checks Shatter Single Month Record

    I am sure this does not come as a surprise to anyone here, but the numbers are interesting.

    FBI: March 2020 Firearm Background Checks Shatter Single Month Record

    FBI figures released Wednesday show March 2020 shattered the single month record for the number of National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) checks conducted in one month.

    FBI numbers account for 3,740,688 background checks last month, shattering the record of 3,314,594, set in December 2015; the only other time NICS checks crossed the three million threshold for a single month.

    Moreover, the number of checks conducted in March 2020 represent a nearly 30 percent increase over the number conducted in March 2019, and that period witnessed the second highest number of checks of any March in history up to that point.

    I'd like to buy another rifle but I'll have to do it when the wife isn't looking. I think I have enough handguns. I only have 2 hands anyway.

    Maybe some of them will now raise a questioning eyebrow the next time the "Moms Need Some Action" spout-off.

    Bound to be some more new friends of the Second Amendment in these figures.

    It works for me.

    Have everything I need and most of what I want. Sold off a lot of guns over the past 3 years. Kept what I use. Might bring in 1 or 2 more down the road.

    I find supremely ironic that God in his wisdom and grace has given man freedom of choice bounded by 10 simple rules. Man in his finite wisdom has created millions of rules to limit freedom of choice and the personal responsibility of his fellow man.

    These numbers don't take into account, states such as mine, whereby if you have a CCL, you bypass NICS. I'd say the numbers are HIGHER! As per the law here, the rifle I purchased this past month, wasn't counted.

    This land abounds in ruffians and varmints. Their numbers are legion, their evil skills commensurate.

    I was in the gun store the other day. Most guys were wanting to look at handguns or AR-15's. The counter guy had to change gears when I told him I wanted to look at a single shot .410 shotgun. He tried to sell me on a Remington 870 .410 but I was looking for a cheap .410. He sort of scratched his head and said ok. In a time where everyone is looking for defensive guns I am looking in the opposite direction.
