Americans Buy Enough Guns in Last Two Months to Outfit the Entire Chinese and Indian Armies

Honest Americans Bought Enough Guns in November and December to Outfit the Entire Chinese and Indian Armies

The Obama Administration is the number one threat to the nation’s gun rights advocates.  In the four years since Barack Obama was first elected president in November 2008, an estimated 67 million firearms have been purchased in the United States. In November a record 2 million guns were sold in America.  This was followed up by another record in December.  2.7 million guns were sold in America in the last month of 2012.

To put this in perspective.
Chinese and Indian Standing Army Numbers:

– There are 2.29 active members in the Chinese Army.

– There are 1.13 active members in the Indian Army.

There were enough guns sold in the US in November and December to outfit each active member of the Chinese and Indian armies with a brand new gun.

UPDATE: Ann Coulter added:

And they bought enough guns in December alone to arm the entire Chinese army. Violent psychopaths may miscalculate in the future if they assume shoppers, theater-goers and teachers aren’t armed.

(Say, maybe talking about gun control is the Democrats’ secret plan to stimulate the economy!)

    Can you imagine a Ruby Ridge happening now? In this climate, Ruby Ridge and Waco would start a civil war. That’s how deep the distrust of the government is now. That’s what Obama’s gun grab has wrought. Cops doing those middle of the night break down the door of the wrong house are putting their lives at risk. That fear will make armed government personnel think twice about mass arrests,

  • Daniel in Brookline

    Dr. Noisewater — congratulations on your new purchases! But I wouldn’t be so hasty about calling this “price gouging”. The American market for guns and ammo is outstripping suppliers (who, I’m sure, are gearing up as fast as they can to meet the new demand). Only last year, Ruger thought it was a big deal to try and sell one million guns in a single year. Now we see more than two million NICS checks in a single MONTH, two months in a row… and I’m sure than Ruger owns more than one-twenty-fourth of the US market.

    When supply goes down or demand goes up, prices go up. That’s the way it works. My guess is that, over the next few months — if Washington doesn’t do something stupid, like a Federal ban on the shoulder thing that goes up — gun and ammo sales will slow down, and it will take the manufacturers awhile to catch up to that… meaning that there’ll be an oversupply for a while, and prices will go down.

    In the meantime, enjoy your new acquisitions!

    I have a CCW permit. I don’t know about other states but here in the Commonwealth of KY I do have to fill out the BATF transfer form. Then the dealer enters my Concealed Carry Permit info into the form and that’s it. I don’t have to sit there while he makes a call to the NICS lady to get an okay for me.

    Keep them out of the hands of children? Gretchen, how are the kids going to learn to shoot? I teach all my kids the rifle, pistol, and shotgun. They have been shooting since 6 years old. As soon as the child is physically strong enough to hold the AR-15 they start training with it. The same is true for handguns. It is a time honored way to teach American children how to appreciate, respect, and defend their liberties. Guns are not mysterious to my kids, they are used to them and have a healthy respect and fear of what they can do to flesh and material.

    @ Daniel in Brookline #27:

    Which is all fine and dandy, except that it isn’t the manufactures doing the price gouging, it’s the retailer. Most manufacturers have the same pricing as they did 2 months ago. The raw materials for gunmaking aren’t any scarcer.

    I see people buying used guns on gunbroker (with the title “Pre AWB!!!”) for 3x their normal retail.

    I guess there’s one born every minute. ‘Bammers and crazy Uncle Joe aren’t going to have enough votes to break a filibuster in the Senate, much less pass any of this in the House.

    Guns have only one purpose huh? And what might that be? I like to shoot holes in paper, carefully operating the device and achieving excellent results – poking holes in paper. Is that the one purpose for my gun? Poking holes in paper? Because that’s what I do with my guns.

    Perhaps it’s the trigger actuation nut that’s causing the problem, not the gun?

    I guess my guns are defective because none has caused a crime.

  • Tabby

    #43 you obviously don’t understand that according to the FBI’s OWN data; spree killings have diminished by nearly 50% in the past decade recorded & you are far more likely to be killed by hammers as by gunfire. The same is true for knives as well as fists. Also of note is that these happen primarily in gun free zones because the killers seek them out knowing they can take their time & nobody will stop them.
    Also keep in mind that the majority of homicides by firearm are committed by criminals on criminals (gangs), with illegal guns like the ones Obama’s administration armed the Mexican drug cartels with. The top 10 cities with the highest deaths & crimes using guns are those with the tightest regulations where it’s hardest to obtain them for the law abiding.
    Now gun ownership protects 65 lives for every 2 lives lost & used in self defense to stop a crime by law abiding Americans approximately 2.5 million times per year.Often the gun is never fired & no blood is shed including the ‘bad guys’. They protect innocent people far more than they hurt them. A great example just the deterrent they are in the Kennesaw, GA, who has the lowest rate of crime in the US ever since becoming the town to mandate each home be in possession of a gun.
    Please download the free book at & I’d highly recommend the $5 kindle version of the book “More Guns = Less Crime” for more research & facts that continue to prove that an armed society is a polite society.

    Two things:

    (1) You sure you want to make your arsenal and stockpile known publicly?

    (2) Look into reloading.

    …and, if you do, you might want to look into black powder pistols. They have the advantage of no FFL whatsoever (in most states) and combine the two pastimes: reloading and shooting — in one session.

    Who has two thumbs and doubled his money selling guns to right wingers afraid of the scary black man? (You can’t see it, but I just pointed at myself with my thumbs.) I plan on doing the same once Hilary gets elected.

  • How many people are accidentally shot to death each day? For the last year available, the CDC says there were 606 fatal firearms accidents, including just under 400 fatal hunting accidents. Counting hunting accidents, about 1.65 a day. Omitting hunting accidents, about 0.6 fatalities a day.

    73 of those were children under 16. Of those 28 were killed by a carelessly laid aside police officers duty weapon. So the overall childhood death rate from firearms is about 1 every five days. If we could get tired cops to put their guns out of reach of their children, that would be 1 ever 8 days.

    While I agree that the vast majority of gun owners are well aware of the safety issues, I’ll tell the story about how all the gun owners in my family wound up with gun safes. My oldest son, then about 5, was visiting my parents, and he asked my daddy, “Grandpa, why do you have a gun in _____?” which was the super-secret hiding place my daddy thought was good. He bought a safe the next day.

    He went through two or three safes before he found one that he thought was secure enough.

    Cool, now we won’t have to worry about either of these slave countries attacking us.

    Please quit with the implied numbers of all the “unintentional” shootings “every day”. Unless you have stats, that is nonsense. Now granted, there are those out there who have NO business operating ANY type of mechanical device, guns included…and they should think twice before owning/operating a weapon…you know who you are. For many millions more, there is no issue. I grew up in a household with guns and was hunting unsupervised in my early teens…with cousins of the same age. My kids grew up the same way and my grandchildren are now growing up in similar households. Guess what, not one incidence of accidental gunfire or injury. We were taught the proper rules and respect and acted accordingly. There were no exceptions to the rules.

    Now what price do we pay for this freedom? One person killed in anger or unintentionally even is one too many. But we do that with education and enforcement. We do not ban guns. More people are killed each year by far in auto accidents…so….what to do? Just for “fun”, let’s compare some of the more successful gun-control programs in history…we’ll begin with the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany…they managed to exterminate upwards of 40-50 million of their OWN citizens before all was said and done. In fact, we’ll never have an accurate count of how many Stalin murdered since he managed to bury all those records along with the victims. Now, your typical liberal will exclaim in dismay, mock horror and disgust how that could never happen in the USA…but then again. many of the same ilk said the same about Stalin and Hitler before and during the war until the facts came out. I for one am not willing to risk my children’s future for some phony hand-wringing agenda.

    One would think that in an ideal society, where the nation’s leader was honored and respected by the people, such a large body of law abiding citizens would be welcomed as a potential supplement to the regular military and police as part of a “well regulated militia” in a possible time of national emergency.
    As it is, Obama is so paranoid of the American people that he’s determined to crack down and put controls on the very people who have shown themselves to be the foundation of a functional society. His administration has even gone so far as to categorize our veterans as “potential terrorists”.

  • The purpose of the Second Amendment is to arm people in order to prevent future tyranny. They need the tools to do this.

    The term “Well Regulated” in the Second Amendment meant “Well Manned and Equipped ” in 1791 as was determined in the 1939 United States v. Miller case after referencing the autobiography of Benjamin Franklin. The concept of Government Regulation, as we understand it today, did not exist at the time.

    United States v. Miller also determined that the term “Arms” refers to “Ordinary Military Weapons” (not crew operated). American Citizens have the right to Keep and Bear, which means Own and Carry, any weapons that a soldier carries into battle. That includes past, present and future weapons. A Militia consisted of armed volunteers willing to fight with their personal arms and not under government control.

    The 2008 Heller v. Washington DC decision reaffirmed that the Right to Bear Arms was an Individual right. The 2010 McDonald v. Chicago decision reaffirmed it yet again and made it clear that it applies to every state, every city and every town in the United States.

    To limit the Second Amendment to muskets would be the equivalent of limiting the First Amendment to writings in quill pens.

  • Pingback: That's a lot of guns()

  • Everyone needs to go to the Washington Times and read Judge Napolitano’s article from yesterday. It’s title is, “The Right To Shoot Tyrants, Not Deer”. That says it all. The rest of the article explains why Thomas Jefferson believed that the people should have the latest version of weapons that the government has that would be used to take your guns away from you. He backs this up with the Constitutional rights that we all enjoy. I’m surprised that BG hasn’t shown this link yet, but he probably will in time.

    Also you can find part of it on the “Gun Appreciation Day” site as well. Print this article and send it to your representative and maybe when they are buried in these letters they will get the picture that we are not going to give up our weapons no matter who the President is, and especially since we have a Communist in the White House now.

    Also, I can’t understand why NO conservative talk radio host hasn’t reminded everyone that Obama, Eric Holder, and Bill Ayer’s all sat on the board of directors of the Joyce Foundation in as late as 2005(I think) and the Joyce Foundation was a think tank that was created by Communists for the specific purpose of coming up with ways to get rid of the 2nd Amendment. Obama himself said last week that, “I have a historic background in wanting to get rid of these kinds of weapons.” as he was being interviewed by some useful idiot reporter when asked some dumb question about the Feinstein Gun Ban bill.

    That says all we need to know that he has no intention of allowing us to keep our semi-auto loading handguns, rifles, shotguns, and any accessory that goes to any of those weapons we legally and lawfully own. And to be clear it Thomas Jefferson was telling us what God given right we really have we should be able to buy fully automatic M-16’s and anything else like that because that is exactly what the cops and those in the military who don’t think anything is wrong with disarming their fellow citizens on order from and despot in the White House, will use on us when they come for our guns, which I may add aren’t fully automatic. Well it that’s what the 2nd Amendment means and that is we have the right to be on parity with those who would take our rights away, then we should be able to buy automatic M4’s, AK’s, or anything else like that.

    Hell, I would love to have the fully automatic version of what I have. That would be fun.

    But as it is now, you have to have a class III license to purchase any automatic and pay the $200 dollar license fee and keep all the dumb records that goes along with all that.

  • What I’m worried about is there may be some “deal” made by Republican’s that will allow us to keep everything we have but like after the McDonald decision, you could have a gun in your home but the problem was with that decision was that anyone who had a gun couldn’t take it outside their home….ever! That included even in their own front porch or back yard.

    We could be looking at some kind of law like that, that if you own one of the banned guns you can keep it but you can’t ever take it outside your home. You can’t take it to a gun range, competition, or just out to the woods to shoot it. If you are found to have one of the banned guns outside your home it will be taken from you and you will be arrested and charged with a Federal gun law violation.

    Like that?

  • richard40

    Maybe Obama is not as bad as we thought. Maybe this proposed gun ban is just a way to stimulate jobs, in the gun industry. If that was his plan it is working well. Of course knowing the idiocy of your typical leftist it is probably just an unintended consequence.

    I hope the repub party will have enough backbone to kill gun control, but I agree if they cant they are useless, and its time to jump to the libertarians. I can understand the cave on the fiscal cliff, since the alternative that would have resulted from doing nothing would have been an even higher tax hike, but on guns, the result of doing nothing is just fine, so any “compromise” on guns is nothing but a craven betrayal.

    Gun owners with a short fuse are responsible for 90% of the shootings, most are due to road rage or parking lot disputes. Shootings that occur in the home are rarely against intruders, 95% are between mentally disturbed family members and friends. Only 2% of bullets fired actually hit a person involved in illegal activity. Fifty thousand Street crime deaths result from gang bangers fighting over a bag of dope or the earnings of a hooker. Gun are safer in the hands of cops with long fuses, it will result in honoring not the killing of one’s neighbor.

    In many states if you have a current concealed carry license, therefore have already had a more in-depth FBI background check, you don’t have to have the call in phone check. I would say the numbers would have to be higher.

  • Daniel

    To be honest, it is likely that way more weapons were sold than we have stated here. What they’ve listed are NICS checks for those months. That does not necessarily translate into the same number of weapons being sold. Multiple weapons can be sold under one check. Of course, there could have been hundreds of thousands of denials (unlikely to be that high), maybe a few thousand. There are also people who are approved by way of having a CCW permit in some states, so the NICS is not even needed.

    Brownell’s sold 3.5 years stock of Magpul in two day following Feinstein’s statement about gun ban. Magpul has 1,000,000,000 AR15 mags on back order. Ammunition is nearly non existent in stores. Sturm Ruger is at nearly $48 a share. Components to build AR15s have tripled, when still available. Ammunition components such as powder, brass, primers are flying off shelves. Reloading press’ are selling better than ever. So what, exactly, do they think a gun ban will accomplish? Chicago has the strictest gun laws in the country and is also the murder capitol of the entire US. Mexico has a near total ban on guns and ammunition, anyone vacationed to Mexico City recently? The UK implemented a weapons ban as well. Not only has violent crime increased, it is higher than the US. Where is the logic in a gun ban?

    I find this to be disturbing! My cronies only have twice that amount!

    What about Mexican Gangs? Did they buy their fair share?

    If not – then I think it is time for another round of government sponsored “Guns 4 Mexican Gangs” I am sure Eric Holder will agree!

    My enormous Limo is spewing fumes and David Axelrod and has a new unified scam to shake down gun owners. It’s a variation of the Big Bubba Clinton Lie. I cannot go into details. My last scam failed.

    Further, Hillary and I will not be available to testify about the Benghazi massacre. She has a pre-hearing blood clot. I cannot answer any more questions. Good day

    Maybe Obama and the Democrats should wake up, people are tired of their BS and infringements on Constitutional Rights. The American people will not be told what they can or cannot have by a temporary occupant of the White House.

  • I’ve been accumulating magazines and ammunition for forty years, shooting only about 10% of stock reloaded or acquired new. Was not caught off guard by the Clinton ban, but after the ban expired, I bought over 150 Glock magazines at $11.99 each, and 150 AR-15 magazines for under $10.00. Have about the same number of M-14 magazines. Figured the gun banners would be back, as the pendulum swings back and forth. I can equip about two squads quite well, and I will never run out of ammunition. When I am too old to utilize all of this, my collection will easily pay for my retirement. I bought my first M-1A in 1976 for $400.00. It is now worth six times that….better than the stock market. My ammunition is worth five to six times what I paid for it. Thanks, Clinton and Obama, for securing my financial future!
    Seriously, this is nothing more than a ban on MODERN guns. It’s a power grab, simple as that. My friend manufactures the excellent Robinson XCR in Salt Lake City. He sells many of these in France, Germany, Canada, and Switzerland…all countries that the banners say have “reasonable” gun laws. I think Switzerland has the best, as silencers are unregulated accessories, and most of them own machine guns. Lowest crime rate in the world. Canada scrapped its ridiculous gun laws years ago, and France and Germany have relaxed theirs as well. No one has died as a result of me having modern weapons.

    Mexico has some of the toughest gun laws in the world, and it is awash in homicides and assassinations. Switzerland is a quiet, even boring country….everybody has a machine gun. No crime there. Hmmmm. Maybe there is a problem with the Leftist’s fantasy paradigm.

    Perhaps this may help these random shooters think again before entering a theatre or a school. Now, with any luck, they’ll be out numbered and out gunned. This is great news.

  • will Rodgers

    Everyon should support Congressman Steve Stockman from Texas. He has told Obama that if he tries to subvert the Constitution via Executive Order he will move to have him IMPEACHED! Isn’t about time someone enforced our Great Constitution and the Law?!?
    Do I hear Stockman in 2016 :))

    also doesn’t cover the evil evil private sales. I’m guessing the number was between 4 and 5 million.

    and while i’m thinking of it, I submit that taxes on firearm purchases infringes on the 2nd Amendment. Firearms, ink, and other rights-related items should be tax free.

    Why does everyone play into Obama’s game. Obama is delusional and the rest of the Democrats who go along with him are facilitators.
    Obama can no more nullify the 2nd ammendment than he could re-instate slavery or prohibition. Further the “Bill of Rights” consists of the basic “Rights” the Federal Government guaranteed each and every citizen of every state upon joining the Union. The instant any of these “Rights” are withdrawn from our Constitution by the Federal Government it becomes an illegitimate entity and forfeits it authority to govern.

    @Gretchen, while I appreciate your sentiment for safety please don’t perpetuate false information.

    The US has the highest gun ownership rate in the world. There are 89 guns for every 100 Americans, that’s over 277 million guns, by comparison England and Wales have 6 per 100. The accidental deaths for firearms in 2010 was 606; by comparison there was over 19,000 or 8 deaths per 100k people, from accidental overdose from LEGAL pharmaceutics. That’s over 30 time the national accidental deaths for firearms and almost 4 times the national firearms murder average. Now tell me how big our gun control problem is?

    melvin polatnick commented:

    Gun owners with a short fuse are responsible for 90% of the shootings, most are due to road rage or parking lot disputes. Shootings that occur in the home are rarely against intruders, 95% are between mentally disturbed family members and friends. Only 2% of bullets fired actually hit a person involved in illegal activity. Fifty thousand Street crime deaths result from gang bangers fighting over a bag of dope or the earnings of a hooker. Gun are safer in the hands of cops with long fuses, it will result in honoring not the killing of one’s neighbor.

    my responce

    tell that to the inocent people shot by ny police officers at the empire state building. cops shoot more bystanders than ccw holders i think the ratio is like 2 out of 11. the 2 being civilian ccw holders vs your average badge wearer

    I own one gun but I know that in an event of s situation of loss of power or natrual disaster its not going to stop mass looting of my home and property if I use my two shot derringer 9mm at best I take two of possible god knows how many desperate hungry or criminally Intent people out before the reach me and hurt me and my family for our livelyhood because a mental or seriously criminal is not gonna stop from me brandishing and people remember this fact intruders armed with weapons and no discuise do intend harm and will leave no whitnesses its not the amount or speed of the bullets its the intent behind the assault and the mind setand goals of the offender if we placed measures for exit only on all our doors in the schools that are not used and security armed sign in with detectors we would save because banning is not the answer prevention in by better security will help and our government must be mind readers if they know who is mentally ill and I dont but through keen observation. But also better measures need to be inforced we have the darn laws enforce them. My final statement is that if you have a person in residence in your home that may have mental health issues make sure all weapons are un reachable if possable and if you dont stop the denile that there might be a propblem it wont matter if u even have guns desperate people do crazy stuff and they could kill u jo blow and themselves. With a darn butter knife without u seeing it comming because u dont want to see the propblem awareness is key in all aspects. Of life.

    now, i just hope they use them all. on other americans. or themselves. that way, most of the world problems will get solved.

  • Joel

    I don’t see an issue, if you can track the sale chances are they are lawful gun owners and not the problem. Focus on the criminals and the mentally ill.

    The mentally ill can be dealt with by access to mental healthcare by the way. A medical record release is an infringement of privacy and adds a stigma. Making the people we want to prevent from getting a gun to go into hiding.

    SO access to mental health care. Reaffirm their right to privacy and allow it to be easier for parents of the mentally ill or caregivers to have something go through the court system which woudl bar them from the use of arms.

    Further more parents with a mentally ill child require a safe and to restrict access of the mentally ill. So they don’t get a hold of it.

    These are laws that punish people whom have never committed a crime.

    Stop legislating the law abiding out of their right to choose which arms they want.

    You do realize Obama was elected in 2008 when the economy went to hell, the recession started, and business’ started laying off workers en masse, right?

    That means more people are purchasing guns to defend their property against the new wave of future criminals and thugs that will resort to robbing and stealing due to there being no other way to make money.

    While I’m sure there were a few stereotypical conservatives buying guns simply because Obama was elected, they were few and far between. The simple fact is that people started buying guns en masse since 2008 due to the economy and recession. It’s as simple as that.

    And by the way, when people spend money buying guns, it does help the economy. Deal with the facts.
