Since the NICS system was established in November 1998 a total of 160,474,702 background checks were made.160 Million since Nov 1998! That's quite a few firearms methinks. Quite a few.

I'd like to see some further-broken down numbers. The FBI shows 2.78 million checks in Decemeber, and just a bit over 2 million in November. I have no doubt those numbers were going be up there anyway because of the election, but I'd SERIOUSLY like to see a week-by-week breakdown for December. Sandy Hook happened halfway through the month. I'm willing to bet that biggest spike was over a two week period, probably just ONE week after that shooting.

You KNOW that's when the spike hit! Guns and ammo, Poof! gone almost overnight again.

I know Nevada doesn't use the FBI NICS but uses their own States DPS (State Police) for the Brady call. Makes me wonder how many other States do likewise and how many other sales were made not being recorded by the FBI stats?
Lol go ahead and try to round those upDo you remember when the DC Sniper was running around? All of a sudden certain locals who lived in that area were visited by serious men who KNEW that they had bought or owned an AR IIRC. 4473s? Lucky guess? I go to work, someone comes a calling here at work while a team is visiting my house with a warrant (or not) goes thru my computer, safe, etc... P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act. Keeping the homeland safe sir, Thank you for your cooperation. Easy as pie. Tools are in place. Resistance gets you dead... or worse. Where did Baba Louie go? Baba who? Just disappeared I guess.

Easy. As. Pie.
