Obama is the world’s leading gun salesman of all time

Obama just keeps on breaking all the records for gun sales. He has now sold 91% more guns than were ever sold under George W. Bush:

There have been 65,376,373 background checks completed for Americans purchasing firearms since February of 2009, the first full month of Barack Obama’s presidency.

According to data compiled by the FBI, the number of Americans purchasing guns has skyrocketed since Obama was elected.

In 2009, there were 13,984,953 background checks for Americans buying firearms.  If we subtract the 1,212,860 checks completed in the month of January, the total checks for the year under Obama were 12,772,090. 

For 2010, background checks totaled 14,320,489.  In 2011, checks were 16,336,732, and in 2012, 19,463,832.  Background checks for the month of January 2013 were 2,483,230.

This totals 65,376,373 background checks completed since President Obama’s first full month in office, or 44,748 background checks per day!

By comparison, the number of background checks in Obama’s first term is 91.1% higher than President George W. Bush’s first-term total of 34,214,066.

    Some things to bear in mind.

    More than one firearm may have been purchased at the time of each background check.

    Many sales are second hand guns so the number of checks does not represent 65,376,373 new firearms entering the market.

    65,376,373 minimum is a shit load of guns.
