The Federal Bureau of Investigation recorded more than 16.8 million background checks for gun purchases in 2012, the highest number since the FBI began publishing the data in 1998.
Customers fear future gun restrictions from Democrats and Congress.

Press TV reported:

US gun sales have hit a record level and with the latest mass killing, stores are running out of stock as significant sales tops is being reported on assault rifles.

During the first eleven months of this year, the FBI has conducted 16.8 million background checks, breaking last year’s record of 16.5 million not including the current sales hikes after the Connecticut school massacre.

“We are seeing a total madhouse of buying everything in sight,” said one gun storeowner in Las Vegas on Friday, adding, “We have not only a run on the guns, but a run on ammunition.”

The largest retailer of guns and ammunition in the US, the Walmart, has reported that several semiautomatic guns are sold out at various locations around the country.

The Walmart, which forbids sales of profane music, stocks the criticized assault firearm, AR-15, used at both mass killings in Aurora, Colorado and Newtown, Connecticut.


It’s Christmas and the gun shelves at Mid America Arms in St. Louis are bare.

  1. the democrats are the gun stores biggest sales boosters. Everytime they talk gun control gun sales go through the roof.
    Not what they had in mind with there gibberish talk. They will tone it down, less they lose there core inner city voters who love guns.

  2. ++

    btw, they need to ban South Park & the Kindergarten Killer Game..

    i have tried, but i cannot watch SP, the disgusting sexual things they
    have those CHILDREN do, not to mention the gore and bloodshed, is
    not “funny”.. it’s part of what is really wrong with our dumbed down
    desensitized society, same goes for excessively violent video games,
    movies, and rap music that is all too easily accessible to CHILDREN..
    and please don’t tell me they aren’t, or it can be shut it off, yada, it’s
    everywhere, also not to mention being taught in school.. *sigh*

  3. The only stimulous that Obama has cuased or achieved success at… Gun sales. and he didnt spend a dime to do it. Unlike the $trillion debacle that was really just massive payoffs to the unions.

    ht: 100 Percent FED Up

    Why do I NOT believe he killed himself? I guess it’s because
    I’ve become so suspicious of everything this government and
    especially Barry Hussein and his thugs are up to…..

    SEAL Team Four commander in Afghanistan ‘commits suicide’

    [The leader of Navy SEAL Team Four, one of the most senior
    commanders in the elite world of special operations, has died
    after apparently committing suicide in Afghanistan, it was
    reported today.

    Commander John W Price, 42, was found dead in his quarters
    with a gunshot wound on Saturday - just three days before
    Christmas.

    Cmdr Price was based in Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek,
    Virginia, near Norfolk and had been in the military for more
    than 23 years.

    He leaves behind a wife, Stephanie and a nine-year
    -old daughter Jillian, who both live in Virginia Beach.

    The commander is originally from Pottstown, Pennsylvania.

    He commanded six platoons, two-dozen SEAL commandos and
    numerous support staff, deployed in Uruzgan Province, where
    they were conducting counter-terrorism missions and training
    police in remote parts of the country.

    SEAL Team Four is one of nine teams of special operations troops.
    The most famous of the combat groups is the classified SEAL Team
    Six, which conducted the raid that killed Osama bin Laden in May
    2011.

    A U.S. military official said the death 'appears to be the result of
    suicide.' The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the
    death is still being investigated.]

  5. There are stores here overflowing with gun buyers. Their mothers didn’t raise a fool.

  6. Once the people see that “gun control” does not work, then they will demand a complete repeal of the 2nd amendment. Obama is setting the pace right now. Even some conservative Republicans like Joe Scarborough, Scott Brown, and John McCain are rapidly moving in that direction by saying that only single action hunting weapons should be legal. They will eventually move in an even more sensible direction

  7. I purchased two Ruger 40 Calibers on Friday because of the democrats politicizing a tragedy in an attempt to disarm us.

  8. #7:
    “conservative Republicans like Joe Scarborough, Scott Brown, and John McCain”

    Ah, No.
    Those boys are RINOs whose opinions are not worth consideration.

  9. what you all are NOT GETTING is the dubious huge order the Obama administration put in for 1 million rounds for the homeland security department, the EPA (????), the other departments and that means there’s NO AMMO.

    So for all the gun purchasers our there? Congratulations. You’ve bought a paperweight.
    The next trick will be the President issuing an executive order making lead outlawed and no one will be able to use the guns. End of problem for the government to take over.

  10. I purchased my first weapon this week, for home defense. A Remmington 870 pump action shotgun. If some idiot Obama voter thinks its a good idea to come into my house and do a little personal wealth distribution I want them to hear me loading it, perhaps give them reason to reconsider their decision. The first shot might be salt but the next one won’t be.

  11. It was hard finding any stores with weapons this week. Of the five Walmarts near me only the one in Canton, GA had anything left. And it took two days to get through the background check. The system was overloaded. Ammo was a little short on variety but don’t let that stop you from getting a gun. You can always fill your own ammo.

  12. Kay, just to help you out I believe the Feds ordered approx 1.5 billion rounds, are you aware the public purchased 6 billion rnd’s in the last quarter of 09 and have been steadily purchasing in greater #’s ever since. Personally I took posession of my new AR-15 the evening before the tragic events at Sandy Hook and I can assure you I have plenty of ammo as I do for my other Second Amendment protected rifle.

  13. Obama may be the #1 gun salesman of all time!

  14. Gun Control/Confiscation/Disarm

    Here is a thought for everyone and possibly a question to the congresscritters.

    Which law enforcement agency is going to take the guns from the gangs throughout all the inner cities?

    (LA Riots)Which law enforcement agency is going to take the guns from the Korean community?

    Last be not least, which law enforcement agency is going to take the guns from the Muslim community?

    My opinion; no one will!

    If the opinion is true what does this tell you?

  15. #12 – So for all the gun purchasers our there? Congratulations. You’ve bought a paperweight.
    The next trick will be the President issuing an executive order making lead outlawed and no one will be able to use the guns. End of problem for the government to take over.
    —————————-

    You are actually correct. The thing to buy would be ammunition and not more weapons. It is so funny how people continue to get played by big industry

  16. Wish I had extra cash for some Christmas cheer. :razz:
