Gun Buyers on Cusp of Breaking
All-Time Background Check Record

Original Article

Posted By: M2, 12/4/2019 11:11:26 AM

Gun buyers are currently on the cusp of breaking the record for the highest number of background checks conducted in one year’s time. Breitbart News reported the record for the most background checks in a single year is 27.5 million, and we are fast approaching that number. The FBI reports the number of checks for November 2019 was 2,574,752, an all-time record for the month of the November. This brings the number of checks for January 1, 2019 through November to 25,432,856, which is roughly 2.1 million away from a record.

When the Left flatly states they're coming for our only means of protection against them, yes, we'll buy more guns.

Someone needs to point out the obvious to the brain-dead lie-berals -- that if we law-abiding gun owners were the problem, they would know it!!!! And if they push us to Civil War II to protect our Constitutional rights, they will quickly discover that you don't mess with our Constitutional rights!!!!!

There are more gun owners in the U.S. than in all European armies, combined! Probably even more than the Chinese army. I remember a statement made about 40 or 50 years ago by a Russian from the Soviet Union upon his first visit to the U.S. After getting a tour, he said that we could never be subdued and occupied (by the Soviet Union, or anyone else.) Nothing has changed!

Along with #1 and #4, we need to keep careful watch of the combat infantry armor and weapons being developed with our tax dollars, and take steps to ensure 'government' drones aren't the only members of America that have access to it. We citizens, as we did prior to the unconstitutional 1934 NFA and subsequent acts, did have access. Loads of citizens need to make a mental paradigm shift to realize we are in charge and are the rulers, not the corrupt-o-ctras and other bureau-o-crats in DC.

Wife and I got our concealed carry permits 10 years ago shortly after Obie was elected. We go shooting at a local gun range regularly to make sure our aim remains solid.

I am convinced that many of these gun-grabbers actually own quite a bit of stock in firearms and ammo manufacturing companies. They know that when they start spewing their anti-gun rhetoric that sales will jump along with the value of the stock. Follow the money.

American Liberals, Socialists, Marxists, totalitarians, and other traitors preach gun confiscation and gun sales go up. We must remember that the enemies of American democracy want us disarmed. They want their enemies disarmed. That is US.

About 250 million NEW sales guns sold in the USA in the last decade. Be very careful what you wish for, Demonrats. People have gotten to a low boil, and have been arming up for a long time, and we outnumber you about 10 to one in who is armed, and about 60 to one in who is actually a good shot.

The reason firearm purchasing is increasing from an already high level is that many believe a Civilian-On-Civilian Armed Conflict will develope in 2020/2021 to encompass Mr Trump's Reelection/Inauguration. Trump's reelection will Trigger the Left (ANTIFA Types) to wreak havoc upon America and the Right will respond to the Left with a vengeance in true Vigilante Fashion. This will not be the Right against our Governments. It'll be the Right against Lefty Domestic Terrorists. It's all simmering below the RADAR within both the Left and the Right. The Left is Planning their future acts of Terrorism as a Gift to Mr Trump and the Right is buying Guns-n-Ammo and Night Vision Scopes for their AR15s Keep in mind, the Left HATES America and would rather see it destroy itself from within than survive and prosper. The increase in Fire Arms purchases is significant concidering our current political devide. Ignore it at your peril....

The imaginary recession of 2019 is over. The U.S. economy added 266,000 jobs for the month and the unemployment rate fell to 3.5 percent, matching the lowest level in 50 years. Economists had expected the economy to add 180,000 jobs and for unemployment to remain unchanged at 3.6 percent, according to Econoday. Adding to the picture of strength for the labor market, previous jobs numbers were revised up. September’s figure was revised up by 13,000 to 193,000. October was revised up by 28,000 to 156,000. Together, that adds 41,000 more jobs than previously reported. The Friday report on nonfarm payrolls makes it clear that the economy is much stronger than

The "Our diversity is our strength!" Party is starting to look rather monochromatic in its upper echelons these days. The four leading candidates for its presidential nomination — Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg — are all white. The six candidates who have qualified for the Dec. 19 debate — the front four, plus Amy Klobuchar and Tom Steyer — are all white. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democratic Majority Leader Steny Hoyer are both white, as are Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Whip Dick Durbin.

Former secretary of state John Kerry endorsed Joe Biden for President on Thursday, citing Biden’s performance serving as vice president in the Obama administration as proof that he has what it takes to defeat President Trump. “The world is broken,” Kerry told The Washington Post. “Our politics are broken. The country faces extraordinary challenges. And I believe very deeply that Joe Biden’s character, his ability to persevere, his decency and the experiences that he brings to the table are critical to the moment. The world has to be put back together, the world that Donald Trump has smashed apart.”

One symptom of a society in crisis is the unreliability or even corruption of its own auditors. After all, when the watchmen have lost moral authority to watch, who can be believed or trusted? Or, as the Roman satirist Juvenal famously put it, “Who will guard the guardians?” It was recently reported that FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith altered an email to bolster a suspicious FBI effort to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court warrant authorizing the surveillance of Carter Page, a onetime employee of the Trump campaign.

George Conway needs that sort of friend right now. The poor man is clearly not well. His wife Kellyanne works for Donald Trump. He hates Trump and goes around saying how awful the 45th president is.

Is the ghost of John McCain haunting Senator Lindsey Graham? The South Carolina Senator went on Maria Bartiromo’s Fox News show, Sunday Morning Futures, to throw a wet blanket on conservatives’ dreams of a Senate trial that would get to the bottom of the plot against President Trump. He wants to leave all those rocks in place, turning nothing over to see what crawls out. Instead, once the House managers present their case, he wants a quick vote, presumably ending in dismissal of the case. In particular, Graham ruled out calling Adam Schiff to testify.

If you talk to conservatives these days, you'll hear that Matt Drudge's eponymous news aggregation site has gone over to the dark side—that Matt's joined the anti-Trump resistance.

US officials repeatedly lied to the public about the war in Afghanistan for its 18 year duration by hiding the fact that it was unwinnable and troops were out of their depth, The Washington Post has claimed. In a lengthy article published on Monday, the Post claims that top officials knew the military's chances were slim but that they routinely hid the grave reality and made 'rosy pronouncements' about it instead. The cache of documents—dubbed the 'Pentagon Papers of Afghanistan'— includes interviews that the government carried out with senior military personnel which the newspaper obtained through a Freedom of Information request.

Durham's inquiry has had a broader scope than Horowitz's, including a focus on foreign actors as well as the CIA, while Horowitz concentrated his attention on the DOJ and FBI. Additionally, Durham's criminal review has had additional investigative resources not available to Horowitz.
