Americans are buying guns to prepare for a revolution. The Federal Government is on the verge of total chaos. For 2012, they imposed 40,000 new laws upon the American people. The economy sucks, jobs are dismal, and consumer confidence is at an all time low. Our right to bear arms is necessary to protect our love ones and our personal property. With the uncertainty of our future, it is wise to take precautions.
(Telegraph) According to the FBI, over 1.5 million background checks on customers were requested by gun dealers to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System in December. Nearly 500,000 of those were in the six days before Christmas.
It was the highest number ever in a single month, surpassing the previous record set in November.
On Dec 23 alone there were 102,222 background checks, making it the second busiest single day for buying guns in history.
The actual number of guns bought may have been even higher if individual customers took home more than one each.
Explanations for America's surge in gun buying include that it is a response to the stalled economy with people fearing crime waves. Another theory is that buyers are rushing to gun shops because they believe tighter firearms laws will be introduced in the future.
The National Rifle Association said people were concerned about self defence because police officer numbers were declining.
