Liberals like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Michael Bloomberg would like nothing better than to end 2016 by disarming every American citizen. For the past eight years, the three amigos have been working tirelessly to abolish the Second Amendment rights of every person in America.
The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) went into effect in November 1998. Since that time through November 2015, there were 222,363,898 background checks. Each year the number of background checks has increased over the year before and it clearly appears that 2016 will also exceed last year’s number.
NICS states that background checks do not represent total gun sales since many states have different laws and methods of approving gun sales. It also doesn’t cover the hundreds of thousands of guns sold at gun shows or by private individuals, but the trend of increasing numbers continues to climb year by year.
In October 2016, the FBI reported 2,333,539 gun-related background checks processed through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. That figure is an increase of over 350,000 background checks for October 2015.
