    Lets hope the trend keeps up, the more people with guns the less people that will vote to regulate them.

    Did you see the breakdown?

    The chart I saw showed that 89,000 of them were CPL checks.

    Not that it's a bad thing, but paints a different picture

    Increases are a good thing both in the number of firearms owned and those carried...

    Every state should adopt constitutional carry...

    Yeah, seems weird. When you look at past months the 89K seems like an outlier

    This thread is interesting. I happened to be in West Coast Armory today. Was in line behind a nice guy, perhaps in his late 30's, who was telling the clerk he wanted to learn to shoot. [OK I listened in on his conversation- he didn't appear to mind] Seems like the nice guy had never even handled a firearm before. Hats off to him. I hope he does learn and one day gets his CCW.

    So now someone needs to do the math on how many are getting their first guns and starting to carry or are gun owners that are deciding to start carrying
    Either way more folks carrying or buying guns ,the numbers are good

    The numbers for Washington are great, For most of the country are great. It should show the anti's that firearms are not some relic of a past time but a part of our culture.... Of course it wont, but it should.

    Not a rant towards you IM
    With all the sales and new carry licensees ,since Sandy Hook,didn't we vote with our pocket books already? Didn't we show the world we want our freedom and ability to defend ourselves?
    What else could one make of the increases over the last few years?
    How is this so hard for the law makers to see?
    Yeah I understand,it ain't about guns,it's about control:rolleyes::mad:

    Thanks for the clear picture, Wow, Pretty impressive for monthly totals. goes to show how much the media drives negative opinions not only through misinformation bur failure to promote reality that doesn't fit their agenda.
    I bet saved a life gun scenarios heavily ought weigh take an innocent life gun scenarios but with the exception of a few gun magazines you rarely read of them or see them in the news.

    Noticed New Jersey says has had zero background checks for permits as far back as the chart goes.

    we should change "land of the free" to "land of the imprisoned*"
    *or soon to be imprisoned
