LOL, nice try. Tell me the name of the ONE person who has caused more sales (Santa maybe?). I'll wait ...

Because of grammarnazi's insistence that Obama has not caused the record legal sales of guns in the US, I put together a little data compiled from the FBI. Feel free to reuse it if you have a need.

Those are background checks, which does not singularly represent sales, but even by that measure, it started in Bush's administration. The trend is increasing regardless of presidency, and the surges are after mass shootings.

True, the number does not represent sales 1:1 because

1) There is a fail rate, but at the same time, it is only ~0.7%.
2) What gun store owners I've spoken to have told me is that in the last few years the number of multiple purchases per single check has risen dramatically (I've done it myself).

This means that now for every 1M NICS checks, if we subtract a liberal 1% for fails, then add 1 in 10 sales as a multiple, there are probably actually about 1.1M sales. So the actual figures of legal sales the last 8 years are very likely many millions higher.

And yes, the increase started in the Bush administration, but you can also see the average annual rate of increase in gun sales increased by 7.2x during the Obama administration as compared to the Bush administration.

Your statement is correct. FBI backgrounds and sales are at highest levels ever. It's easy to research.

But you are missing the biggest bogus claim, that Obama is somehow responsible. It is your own fear that is responsible, not Obama, fear and your general love of guns.

Invicta103 was the one claiming fear. I don't know if he was afraid of departing, maybe ask him. You aren't making sense to me.

Some Kentucky permit holders are subject to monthly background checks.
North Carolina conducted checks on a large group of existing permit holders in 2014.
In California, a technical issue caused NICS queries to be submitted multiple times in 2015.

More sales in general, and more are becoming legitimate, hence legal sales. Obama cannot be blamed for a general increase over all presidencies. It's just ridiculously dumb. Legal sales will appear to increase when background checks are enforced too.

You're trying to blame one guy for the most legal sales in history, and ignoring gun sales have been increasing throughout every presidency. If you think it is because of this one latest president, you are a moron.

Technically this isn't even political, Bob is just trying to somehow blame Obama. It's propaganda. Welcome to America.

Purely antidotal, not solid proof, but I worked part time at Bass Pro Shops from 2007 - 2014. The guns and ammo sales went through the roof in ohhh November of 2008 and continued to increase. You couldn't find certain kinds of ammo at all, the shelves were bare.

NICS data indicates the number of background checks have climbed over the longer term, surveys suggest firearm ownership has slowly declined. This means the sales are just becoming more legal, and suddenly that's twisted into something bad? It's an insane attitude from people hating Obama. Ultimately, you are responsible for you buying guns, just like it always has been.

Got it. A response was not needed, as I said, it was anecdotal (which you missed a golden opportunity to zing me on the misspelling of). Of course, you came back with words like "insane" and "hating".
