Gun-related Background Checks in June Broke FBI Record


FBI gun-related background checks in June broke an agency record, and puts the nation on track to also break the Y 2015 record.

The FBI, in its reporting of gun background checks said it processed more than 2.1-M gun-related checks in June, an increase of more than 600,000 over the previous record set last year.

The increase makes June the 14th month running to see a new background check record. The annual record, set in Y 2015, was 23.1-M checks.

Gun and ammo dealers report spikes in gun sales following the deadly terror attack in Orlando, FL, and a subsequent push for new gun control measures in the House and Senate.

Expect breaking records through the November election, and as long as US President Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton continue to preach gun control to The People.

    Peaceable, lawful citizens are frightened of their government and arming themselves to prevent the kind of oppression this planet has endured throughout recorded history. It’s frustrating that other nations don’t know what’s going on because U.S. authorities fill the air with propaganda. They read what our government releases to big media shills and believe it. Regardless of the lies, U.S. citizens are arming themselves for peaceful purposes. And only the hopelessly indoctrinated follow the current American regime. If conservatives throw away another election, the nation will be lost.
