Hands On Guns

Gun Business Is Booming, The Economy, Not So Much

PHOENIX, AZ --(Ammoland.com)- The lamestream media told you:

The economy is bleak, the recovery is slow, unemployment is up, it’s republicans’ fault, government is focused on creating jobs, our statistics for counting unemployment is beyond reproach, despite all the accounting tricks revealed lately (like not counting out-of-work people who have given up, now there’s a trick!), and the outlook is bleak.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The National Shooting Sports Foundation reported that the March 2014 NSSF-adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) figure of 1,224,705 is the second highest March on record for the system, even with a decrease of 18.4% compared to the March 2013 NSSF-adjusted NICS figure of 1,501,730.

For comparison, the unadjusted March 2014 NICS figure of 2,476,610 reflects a 12.7% increase from the unadjusted NICS figure of 2,197,116 in March 2013.

The unusually large difference in the NSSF-adjusted and unadjusted NICS numbers appears to be due to the re-submission by North Carolina of monthly background checks for CCW permits.

(They re-submit their permitees each month to make sure none have fallen into a prohibited category, expensive and time consuming. No figures are available on if this accomplishes anything, or creates harm.)

Other factors are known to vary the NICS numbers from an actual count of guns purchased, including multiple purchases at one time, decision not to buy, denials, delays, official uses of NICS for other purposes, etc.
