Gun Sales Fluctuate Across the Country

May 2, 2017

Since President Trump took office, the number of firearms sales and NICS background checks have been on the decline and the rise across the country.

It is possible, that now with an advocate and champion for Second Amendment rights now residing in the Oval Office, that legal gun owners and firearm advocates are no longer in fear of losing their God Given right to defend themselves.

Many analysts speculate as to the reason for these numbers and are stating that the compared statistics for April 2017 to April 2016 are marginally close if not higher.

Fox News Reports:

The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) ran 2,045,564 gun-related checks in April. That represents a decrease of about a hundred thousand checks from the all-time record for the month of April set in 2016. It also is a drop of almost four hundred thousand from March as the gun industry enters its seasonal low period.

An analysis of the raw NICS numbers from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) shows that sales may actually be higher than last April. The group’s analysis strips out NICS checks that are conducted for gun-carry permits or other checks that aren’t related to sales. The analysis found that 1,111,596 checks were related to sales, a small increase from the same period last year. 

“The April 2017 NSSF-adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) is an increase of 0.04 percent compared to the April 2016 NSSF-adjusted NICS figure of 1,111,205,” the NSSF said in a release.” (Read More)

The Washington Free Beacon had this to say;

Anyone looking to proclaim a continuing sales slump would be wrong based on the best number we have as a proxy for firearms sales for April 2017 compared to April 2016,” Mike Bazinet, a NSSF spokesman, told the Washington Free Beacon.

Sales in the first two months of 2017 were significantly slower than the record-setting pace of 2016, but NSSF says sales in March and April have matched or exceeded that pace.

Metrics for measuring gun sales in the United States remain limited. While NICS checks are required for many gun sales, most states do not require NICS checks on sales between private individuals on the used firearm market. Other factors can affect the raw numbers reported by the FBI, like transactions of multiple guns using a single NICS check or transactions in states that accept proof of a gun-carry permit in place of a NICS check.” (Read More)

One thing is for certain, Firearm advocates are most certainly feeling more comfortable with President Trump in office then they were with Barrack Obama.

Champion of Gun Rights, Colion Noir was recently on Fox News speaking as to President Trumps speech at the NRA convention in Atlanta. He said that the atmosphere of the conventions was “…celebratory…”. This might be because the NRA were some of President Trumps biggest advocates and supporters during his Presidential campaign.

President Trump addressed the NRA Annual meeting in Atlanta last week. Being the first Sitting U.S. President to do so since President Reagan in 1983. Unafraid of controversy, President Trump proudly advocates for the Second Amendment and its lobbyists, the NRA.

Second Amendment advocates have praised the current administration for rolling back some Obama-era policies such as the Lead Ammunition ban, and the Social Security gun ownership debacle. These are just two such Executive orders that President Obama tried to sneak in at the end of his abusive Presidential 8 year sitting in office.

The battle is far from over for the NRA and firearm advocates however, with anti-gun states like Illinois and California vying desperately to gain control over all things firearm related.

    I guess you have not read what I posted last night. I said the following right-wing media are folding: Patriot News; Fix The Nation, Patriot Viral News; American Liberty Report; Front Page Report; Conservative Free Press; Restore American Glory; Conservative Zone Right-Wise and FoxNews such Bill O’rielly, Sean Hannity and Tantaros, and Charles Krauthammer. Next to go is Rush Limbaugh. Trump has killed all those right media. They cannot criticize Trump for he will send them to prisons. Gun sales are now down by 95%. Do you remember these right wing media accused the IRS of delaying registered as non-profit. These media were just there to jip gullible Americans. Now they are dying happy deaths. I have dug a grave for each of them in my back yard. I will invite you to the party to bury them.

      Seems to me we finally have a President we can half way trust instead of one that the Whole World did not trust and most hated, including this one! Happy Digging!
