Freddy’s Note:

We are lucky that Obama is the least effective president of all time.  Everything he does to restrict guns and ammo, just leads to more guns and ammo being sold to the American Public.  There is a saying that Americans Vote with their Wallets. Well there were 21,093,273 background checks for gun sales in 2013.  I think that is a pretty clear message that American’s want guns and they do not agree with Obama’s Ant-gun agenda.

By Emily Miller Washington Times

One year ago this month, President Obama announced that radical gun control was the top of his agenda for his second term. Although he failed to get any of the gun bans or government registrations passed on the federal level, he was successful in one area. His actions convinced millions of Americans to buy more firearms than any time in history.

The FBI reported that it performed an astounding 21,093,273 background checks for the year ending Dec. 31,  In fact, eight of the top 10 highest weeks ever for  National Instant Background Check System (NICS) checks were in 2013 (the other two were during Dec. 2012.)

The checks in 2013 were 8 percent higher than 2012. The one-year increase is significant because the year leading up to the presidential election also saw massive which firearm sales.

Mr. Obama has actually been the best gun salesman in history. NICS checks have gone up a whopping 66 percent since he came to the White House.

“Last year was a record setting year for gun and ammunition sales due to the threat of anti-gun legislation at both the state and federal level,” said Lawrence Keane, general counsel of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), which represents the industry’s manufacturers.

NSSF also released its own data on Monday which subtracts out the National Instant Background Check System (NICS) checks done for carry permits, which makes it a closer correlation to actual purchases. The NSSF adjusted NICS shows a 2013 year-end figure of 14,796,872.
