wow wee information thoughts:
 
I posted this elsewhere; thought it would be ''fodder'' for some thoughts.

USA Buys 14 Million+ Guns In 2009 - More Than 21 of the Worlds Standing Armies

Washington, DC --(AmmoLand.com)- Data released by the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) for the year reported 14,033,824 NICS Checks for the year of 2009, a 10 percent increase in gun purchases from the 12,709,023 reported in 2008.

So far that is roughly 14,000,000+ guns bought last year!
The total is probably more as many NICS background checks cover the purchase of more than one gun at a time by individuals


I enjoy reading about everything; and sometimes! a wow weee shows up. If this is posted ?elsewhere? sorry. I have read many many pages from Firearm & Gun before I posted; :)

Yup, those sales numbers are what earned Obama the "Firearm Salesman of the year Award". ;)
