Firearm Background Checks Continue Surging

AMERICA, ARMED …

Last month, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) conducted firearm background checks on 2.5 million Americans – a new record.  In fact, it was the ninth consecutive record-breaking month in a row.

Good.

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: More guns = Less crime.  The numbers don’t lie.  In fact the last major mass shooting in America – the December 2015 San Bernardino terror attack – took place in a state with some of the most draconian anti-gun laws in America.

Last year, the FBI conducted 23 million background checks using its system – a record year.  Of course the agency’s process was sharply criticized when it failed to pick up a 2015 drug arrest that should have prevented 21-year-old Dylann Storm Roof from purchasing a .45-caliber handgun.

Roof later used that gun to murder nine parishioners at the Mother Emanuel AME church in Charleston, S.C. – prompting president Barack Obama and 2016 Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton to renew their assault on the Second Amendment.

Roof’s assault also prompted South Carolina lawmakers to file multiple anti-Second Amendment bills – all of which we oppose.

In fact this website not only supports an unqualified Second Amendment right, we have called for civil disobedience of any gun law (federal, state or local) infringing upon it.
