Obama Really Has Helped the Economy: At Least 65 Million Guns Purchased Since He Took Office

Just imagine how dreadful the economic numbers might looks if it weren’t for these record gun sales.

Its historic!

There have been 65,376,373 background checks completed for Americans purchasing firearms since February of 2009, the first full month of Barack Obama’s presidency.

According to data compiled by the FBI, the number of Americans purchasing guns has skyrocketed since Obama was elected.

In 2009, there were 13,984,953 background checks for Americans buying firearms.  If we subtract the 1,212,860 checks completed in the month of January, the total checks for the year under Obama were 12,772,090.

For 2010, background checks totaled 14,320,489.  In 2011, checks were 16,336,732, and in 2012, 19,463,832.  Background checks for the month of January 2013 were 2,483,230.

Just imagine the numbers if gun manufacturers could keep up with the deman.

    As a CCW holder I can purchase a gun without a background check. I just fill out the 4473. The CCW verifies that my background has been checked up to and including finger prints. Any guns I or my wife or anyone like us may have purchased are not included in those numbers. The under count could be enormous since 2% of our county have a CCW and there are a lot of counties. Of course, I’m not saying I purchased any of those evil things. Ooo ickey.
