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.

That number is kind of deceiving when it comes to guns purchased. It doesn't reflect "new" gun purchases, as in, there aren't 65M new guns out there. A certain number of those background checks reflect transfers of guns that were already existing.

I would be interested in seeing how many new guns hit the market since he took office though.

True, but it also doesn't reflect the FTF transfers of existing guns either.

It also is not reflective of multi-gun purchases since they only have to run PICS/NICS once for each transaction, not each firearm.

The numbers may not be exact but, it's 91% more than Bush's first term. 91%!!!!!'

The number crunching is what the Antis will do to discredit. Don't join them.

The picture is clear

What frustrates moi is, 5 million NRA members. Inexcusable and why we have Regime II

How many were purchased in Bush's first term? I think that was Camper is saying is that it is 191% of what was sold during Bush's first term and you are saying the same thing in a somewhat different manner.
