    Another 1,000,000+ Guns Added to American Homes in August<br>
    Background Checks On Firearm Sales Up 12% In August.<br>
    Americans buy 1,074,757+ guns in August 2009<br>
    <br>
    Washington, DC ––(AmmoLand.com)- Data released by the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) reported 1,074,757 checks in August 2009, a 12.3 percent increase from the 956,872 reported in August 2008.<br>
    <br>
    So far that is roughly 9,076,205 gun bought this year! The total is probably more as NICS background checks may cover the purchase of more than one gun at a time.<br>
    <br>
    This latest jump in background checks show that Americans are solidly in-favor of keeping firearms in the hands of law abiding citizens and clearly shows that proponents claiming the USA wants more gun control are blatantly wrong.<br>
    <br>
    Gun Owners Say No to Gun Conrtol with their Wallets<br>
    <br>
    The increased trend of Americans buying firearms at a record pace was once thought to be a one time fluke caused by fears of the new Obama administration expressed lust for more gun control. But now 10 months in and the wrongly named “fear buying” has now become the norm as law abiding US citizen exercise their constitutional right to keep and bear firearms by the millions every month with no sign of slowing down.<br>
    <br>
    The bulk of the buying has been concentrated on the following types of guns or calibers:<br>
    <br>
    * Semi Auto Handguns<br>
    * Revolvers<br>
    * Ar15s and all variants of the Black Rifle<br>
    * .50 Caliber<br>
    <br>
    1.17 Guns for Each Person<br>
    <br>
    Conservative estimates of legally owned guns in the USA put the number at 355,029,250 million guns in the USA. That is 1.17 guns for everyone in the USA and if you listen to the liberal press they are all assault weapons. God bless anyone who tries to invade the USA…<br>
    <br>
    Crime Rates Falling<br>
    <br>
    The most stunning in all of this is that we have not seen an increase in crime, murder rates have fallen across most of the USA and Americans have shown that they can be trusted with firearms ownership. This is directly in contrast to what the national media and gun control supporters would have us believe.<br>
    <br>
    Gun owners you are clearly the majority!<br>
