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.

To put it in perspective that is more guns than the combined active armies of the top 21 countries in the world. countries by number of troops

Of the NICS background checks preformed less than and average .005% were denied, showing, overwhelmingly, that law abiding American citizens are the ones buying guns and that criminals are getting their guns elsewhere.

14,033,824,000 billions rounds of Ammo
Assuming each gun buyer bought 1000 rounds of ammo for each purchase, and you and I know that it is way, way more than that, that would be easily 14,033,824,000+ billions rounds of ammo fired by USA gun owners.

What percent of people were killed or injured by this ammo…it is just to infinitesimally small for me to calculate?

Crime At Record Lows
This record year in firearms background checks show that Americans are solidly in-favor of exercising their civil right to Keep and Bear Arms.

In a year were crime has reached an all time record low what is plainly clear is that more guns equal LESS CRIME!

  1. Greg; there are more then 100 million known legal gun owners in this country. Many of which are ex military and Police. The rest have been stalking game and shooting since they were 12. There is no army in the world that wants to take us on as they know they will lose. I keep around 3000 rounds of ammo all the time and reload to save money.

  2. eastwood; It is obvious you have no education and were raised by far left ignorant lefties. You cant understand what you read IE FBI statistics. When are you going to post a gun free zone sign in your front yard so the criminals will know you can be easily robbed and your wife and daughter raped.

  3. Stock up on ammo and learn to reload, then stock up on powder, primers and bullets. If you can find a good supply of lead learn to cast your own bullets as well. I live in New York and they have imposed insane illegal restrictions to our right to keep and bear arms. We will not give up; no registrations will be filled out and just let someone try to confiscate our firearms. MOLON LABE

  4. PROSNO: Gun-Control is not anti-white as a black CHL-holder in Mississippi, I can ensure you of that. In fact, I was told as a child I had not rights nor was I a citizen as the 14 amendment was constitutionally illegal…by a black person. It was my white neighbour who told me otherwise and taught me my rights, taught me to shoot, hunt, track, etc. NO PROSNOS gun-control isn’t about race, though sometimes it can feel that way, it is really about people-control. The people who susport gun-control aren’t anti-white, anti-black, anti-mexican, anti-asian, or anti-native american. They are anti-liberty, anti-personal freedom, anti-common sense, and most importantly anti-American and for us to defeat this threat, we MUST stand together. We MUST unite and rise as ONE NATION UNDER GOD to preserve a future for our children. We must not divide because the moment we do the government will fill that crack in our armour that over take us. It may be hard, but we must stand together.

  5. We may have bought the guns, but the feds(read homeland security)bought the ammo and have an obamatollah open end purchase order.Funny isn’t it,the feds say they don’t have the money to pay the USA’ s bills, but they can buy over one billion rounds ammo and to top that, be given an open end purchase order.

  6. All those guns owned my all those people, but they can’t stop the REAL crime in the country. The crimes perpetrated by people like the bank executives who made all the toxic loans which caused the financial crash, the employers like Wallmart who pay wages so low, the taxpayer has to supplement their pay. Buy all the guns you want, you won’t stop the big-time criminals who buy your politicians.
