GUN SALES SOAR in March as Top Democrats Continue Push to End Second Amendment Rights
In October 2016 audio was leaked from a Hillary Clinton fundraiser in New York. The Democratic presidential nominee told donors “we’ve got to go after” the Supreme Court on the Second Amendment.
In March retired liberal Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned an oped in The New York Times calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment of the US Constitution.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Last month saw the most gun-related background checks run by the Federal Bureau of Investigation of any March on record, documents released by the agency on Tuesday show.
With 2,767,699 checks conducted by the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) in March 2018, the month beats the previous record of 2,523,265 set in March 2016 by 244,434 checks. That represents a 9.68 percent increase.
The March results put 2018 on pace to see more gun-related background checks than 2017, the second-best year on record, but still behind 2016, the best year on record.
The number of checks run through NICS in a month is considered one of the strongest indicators for how well gun sales are doing because each sale made by a federally licensed dealer, such as a gun store, is subject to a check.
