June 2015 NICS Checks Highest Ever. Gun Sales Surge or the New Normal?

If Hillary Clinton avoids jail time [sic] and becomes the Democratic nominee, you can bet your bottom dollar gun owners will start stocking up again.

“The June 2015 NSSF-adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) figure of 886,825 is the highest June on record for the 17-year-old system,” the National Shooting Sports Foundation reports, “with an increase of 10.1 percent compared to the June 2014 NSSF-adjusted NICS figure of 805,571.” This astounding number of NICS checks number – which doesn’t include background checks for concealed carry licenses doesn’t necessarily indicate that gun sales have started surge. But . . .

it’s an excellent indication that the U.S. firearms market isn’t declining. At all.

While the civilian disarmament industrial complex and their mainstream media anti-gun agitprop enablers and would have you believe that the post-Newtown surge is down to OFWGs buying more and more guns, it’s more than likely that the increasing number of women buyers (now 30% of total sales) and younger shooters entering the market and, presumably, returning (as new gun buyers are wont to do), are keeping sales strong.
