A new article today in the Wall Street Journal contains mostly the same information we have been reading about since Obama got elected last November. There is some new data out for August though:
In August, the number of background checks performed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Instant Criminal Background Check System was up 12.3% from the same month in 2008 to about 1.1 million.
That’s a lot of background checks in one month! And who’s to say those people are only buying one gun? they could be buying several!
Surprisingly the article does not try and put a negative spin on the situation. It reports from a purely business perspective which is always refreshing when it comes to this topic.
