    Did you do your part for firearms sales in September?

    I have to admit, I have not bought a firearm in months, but obviously plenty of other people have in the last month. I wonder what percentage are new owners compared to existing owners who upped their game and bought in response to the Democratic candidates latest verbal assault on gun owners?

    Democratsí Gun Sales Surge Continues Ė September NICS Checks Up 10%

    ...As the latest National Shooting Sports Foundation monthly report reveals, September NICS volume is up 10% year over year. And given the latest FBI crime statistics showing that ó yet again ó crime has fallen while gun ownership is up, thatís very good news....

    ...The September 2019 NSSF-adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) figure of 1,011,636 is an increase of 10.0 percent compared to the September 2018 NSSF-adjusted NICS figure of 919,979. For comparison, the unadjusted September 2019 FBI NICS figure 2,189,028 reflects a 15.5 percent increase from the unadjusted FBI NICS figure of 1,895,841 in September 2018.....

    No, I am on restriction. In fact, sold one yesterday and surrendered the money to my controller.

    I'm not a new gun owner but I tried to help gun sales in Sept. by buying another Taurus 856 just because I wanted one with a concealed hammer. Oh and I've already done my part for October by purchasing the Ruger LC380 to 9mm conversion kit on the 4th. Not to mention the month is just getting started!

    I did my part but I don't think it gets included in the stats. My permit eliminates the requirement of the NICS ck. I just fill out the 4473 and I'm done.

    No. In September I did my part for ammo sales but on Oct 3rd I purchased a new Gen 4 Glock 30. Took it to the range yesterday. I'm holding up my end here.

    Just remember that in Free States there is no background check for those of us who already hold a CCL, and some of us bought a weapon or two also.

    No guns, but I did pick up 1200 more primers while in NC. Local store, no big box. Gotta do my part to keep the little guys going.

    I was going to say the same thing, but you beat me to it. One million Texas LTC licensees are not required to undergo a NICS check for gun purchases either. 4473 only.

    Nevertheless, I did my part. I had to replace an old AR lower receiver.

    I shared a video on FB of Francis Beto saying "hell yes, we're going to take your AR15's and your AK47's".
    Does that count?
