all yer recent tough talk. I’m speaking of course to our esteemed and Civil™ opponents on the left. It seems that quite a few people woke up after the Immaculation of the One. Thanks to Cheapshot, we have learned that in 2009 alone Americans bought enough weapons to arm the standing armies of 21 nations. God I love this country.
Washington, DC –(AmmoLand.com)- Data released by the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) for the year reported 14,033,824 NICS Checks for the year of 2009, a 10 percent increase in gun purchases from the 12,709,023 reported in 2008.
So far that is roughly 14,000,000+ guns bought last year!
The total is probably more as many NICS background checks cover the purchase of more than one gun at a time by individuals.
To put it in perspective that is more guns than the combined active armies of the top 21 countries in the world.
That’s a lot of barbarians at the gate, eh Plugs? And if I may point out, that’s only the NICS checks and does not include private sales.
What’s that you ask? What about ammo? Well I’m glad you asked because…
14,033,824,000 billions rounds of Ammo
Assuming each gun buyer bought 1000 rounds of ammo for each purchase, and you and I know that it is way, way more than that, that would be easily 14,033,824,000+ billions rounds of ammo fired by USA gun owners.
Yes, that’s billion with B.
I’ll be in my bunk.
