If your goal was to provoke even more Americans to buy firearms who weren’t otherwise thinking about doing so, you couldn’t come up with a much better strategy than the one employed by our senescent commander-in-chief: demonize half the population while promising to outlaw one of he most popular firearms in the country.

We don’t stop here. I am determined to ban assault weapons in this country! Certainly. I’ve done it before. And I will do it again.

This after the House passed an “assault weapons” ban bill and the only thing stopping it in the Senate is one, possibly two two “centrist” Democrats who’ve shown they can be rolled. If anyone thought that anti-gun Democrats would somehow be satisfied with the passage of the laughable Cornyn-Murphy Do Something! post-Uvalde gun control bill, we have some crypto investments we’d like to talk to you about.

Meanwhile, Americans chalked up the 37th straight month of adjusted background checks (the best measure of gun sales) above one million in August as measured by the NSSF. And sales show no signs of tailing off below what appears to be a new floor.

As the NSSF’s Mark Oliva told us . . .

August’s figures show there is a clear and steady desire by the American public for lawful firearm ownership. Consistently throughout the year, background check figures for firearm sales at retail have put 2022 on pace to be the third strongest year, behind only the outsized years witnessed in 2020 and 2021.

August’s figures of 1,286,816 background checks was slightly ahead of July’s that came in at 1,233,115. This also marks 37 months straight of background checks exceeding 1 million.

Americans are choosing their gun rights by the millions each month while gun control politicians talk only of efforts to deprive them of their Constitutional rights. They are voting with their wallets. Politicians would be wise to heed to will of Americans lawfully exercising their Constitutional rights and instead focus their efforts on locking up criminals that misuse firearms.

Here’s the NSSF’s press release announcing the numbers. . .

The August 2022 NSSF-adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) figure of 1,286,816 is a decrease of 3.1 percent compared to the August 2021 NSSF-adjusted NICS figure of 1,328,518.

For comparison, the unadjusted August 2022 FBI NICS figure 2,450,616 reflects a 9.1 percent decrease from the unadjusted FBI NICS figure of 2,697,234 in August 2021.

The adjusted August 2022 figure totals more than a million making this August the third strongest for the month on record exceeded only by August 2020 and 2021.

Please note: Twenty-five states currently have at least one qualified alternative permit, which under the Brady Act allows the permit-holder, who has undergone a background check to obtain the permit, to purchase a firearm from a licensed dealer without a separate additional background check for that transfer. The number of NICS checks in these states does not include these legal transfers based on qualifying permits and NSSF does not adjust for these transfers.

The adjusted NICS data were derived by subtracting out NICS purpose code permit checks and permit rechecks used by states for CCW permit application checks as well as checks on active CCW permit databases. NSSF started subtracting permit rechecks in February 2016.

Though not a direct correlation to firearms sales, the NSSF-adjusted NICS data provide an additional picture of current market conditions. In addition to other purposes, NICS is used to check transactions for sales or transfers of new or used firearms. 

It should be noted that these statistics represent the number of firearm background checks initiated through the NICS. They do not represent the number of firearms sold or sales dollars. Based on varying state laws, local market conditions and purchase scenarios, a one-to-one correlation cannot be made between a firearm background check and a firearm sale.

    • Between a S&W MP40, Glock 31/22, or Sig 320 FCG for the 40/357 sig options before we start trying to stop new semi auto pistol sales on a rushed “microstamping is viable” commission ruling on are new set of nonsense already pending litigation. Other than that stacking some extra food for the winter.

      • Sourpuss Jim Crow Gun Control joe and his ilk can go bark at the moon.

        In the meantime Labor Day Sales are underway. I. E. Primary Arms has stripped Aero M5 .308 upper receivers: $99.99, Aero M5 Stripped Lower: $119.99. Aero makes quality 7075 receivers for the .308, and the Aero gen 1 .210 tang is the stronger upper receiver.

        Reasonably priced decent quality m-lok handguards are on There are deals to be found, etc.

        •  I’m being given 100-120$ greenbacks per-hr. to finish a few copy past task on my laptop. I even have definitely now no longer imagined like it might even feasible however my (any-03) confidant buddy turned into receiving $42 k simply in 4 weeks operating this clean opportunity & she has encouraged me to try.

          Following Link For More Details:>>>

    • Freedom will always find a way. You don’t need a brace to get the same effect. Perhaps the government will order cheekbones be removed from anyone possessing a firearm???

      • Or try this. I love gun people who think outside the box. Cowboy Space guns, bumpstocks, etc, etc,

        “AK 7.62×39 Cheek Pistol. You asked.”

  1. If you’re only counting NICS then I contributed to those numbers twice in August. If you’re also counting private sales then the number is…still two. Yeah! That’s it. Only two.

  2. Doesn’t look like the American people are willing to give up their 2nd Amendment RIGHTS!

  3. It looks to me like joe burden has decided to go all in. I look for him to try and suspend elections in November and no doubt he will try to arrange for Trumps untimely death.

    We will be having Nuremberg 2.0.

    • Seems to me Justice Clarence Thomas might be the trigger point. If the democrats find a way to remove him prematurely, we might see colossal numbers take revenge against anyone even accused of participating. Sad but true.

  4. NSSF doesn’t adjust for sales to permit holders in half of the states, nor does it take into account sales that didn’t happen due to lack of availability of products. I wonder how long it will take for manufacturing to actually catch up to demand.
    I myself would really like to see ammo and components reappear in stock someday soon

  5. In Biden’s speech, did he indirectly and subtly admit he stole the election?

    In the article the word “demonize” is linked to > > where Biden is quoted as saying

    “We will codify Roe v. Wade, we’ll ban assault weapons, we’ll protect Social Security and Medicare, we’ll pass universal pre-K, we’ll restore the childcare tax credit, we protect voting rights, we’ll pass election reform, and make sure no one, no one has an opportunity to steal an election again,”

    “… and make sure no one, no one has an opportunity to steal an election again,”

    “…steal an election AGAIN” ?

    Who stole an election Joe? You are the one sitting in the white house so how did you get there actually, by stealing the election?

    What steal? Your own campaign people, and you, said there was no ‘steal’ hanky panky going on, claiming you won fair and square. If the election had been stolen then who stole it? Trump didn’t steal it, for if he did he would be in the white house now and not you. So that pretty much either leaves your statement a lie or you stole the election and are trying to close an ‘election steal path’ you know about so it can’t be used against you when it comes time to run again.

    • Before the stolen election, he also admitted that his campaign had put together “the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization” in American political history.

      Don’t you just love it when the tyrants say the quiet part out loud?

      But, what do I know? I’m only a “semi-fascist” that “represent(s) an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic,” and I’m “determined to take this country backward … promote authoritarian leaders and fan the flames of political violence.”

      So there.

    • The thing is according to the constitution of the United States we should be able to own assualt weapons.
      This pick n choose crap is what got us here in the first place.
      Assualt weapons? Like a frying pan or piano, anything can be an Assualt Weapon.

      • DING DING, the founding fathers believed that we should have the same weapons available to the militaries of the world…

  6. Well, after Senile Joe Biden’s fascist declaration of war and call to arms against 74 million loyal, law-abiding American citizens, just WAIT until you see the numbers for the rest of this year!!

    That incompetent, incoherent, senile moron literally threatened us with “F-15s” and the US Military, is threatening us with a “gun ban”, and called us “fascists” (when WE are the ones actually promoting personal liberty, and HE is the one attempting to govern by fiat and EO), and this somehow surprises anyone??? To the extent he can even form a coherent thought (a questionable proposition), he is frothing at the mouth to go to war with anyone even PERCEIVED to be a Trump supporter.

    Bring it, you senile f***tard.

      • He clarified his position today saying anyone who questioned an election is a threat. You know, like when Gore and Hillary lost. They’re beginning to sound desperate on the subject of election integrity.

        • Dude,

          “They’re beginning to sound desperate . . . ” . Ya coulda stopped right there, my friend. This is shouting, flailing, flop-sweat desperation. Their “the Dimocrats are surging back!!” meme has died its well-deserved death. The whole “the Rethuglicans have a problem with the ‘quality of their candidates'” bs has fallen like a stone. They are going to get CREAMED in November, and they know it. Instead of trying to figure out what they’ve done wrong, they choose to double down on failure. “We aren’t moving up in the polls?? That’s unpossible!!! We have to fail HARDER!!!!”

          The night and early morning of Election Day, 2022 is going to be lit AF. I plan to gorge on popcorn and Liberal Tears.

  7. It should be obvious to everyone that the blatant disregard for the law showed by this administration is meant to establish a dictatorial socialist state in our country. They do not follow the Supreme Court Decisions and when they disagree, they harass Court members and simply disregard the law by making more illegal laws on the same topic. Additionally, for those of you who are not familiar with Saul Alinsky’s 8 steps to create a socialist state you might want to look them up as all 8 are currently in play. The Biden Administration is implementing all 8 at this point in time. This entire effort at so called gun control is to disarm the American public so they cannot defend themselves against this Government.
    The President has throw down the gauntlet by attacking MAGA supporters just as Hitler did with the Jews in Germany. Hiring 87,000 armed IRS agents should have alerted most people to the intentions of this administration. Recent videos of ATF visits violating citizens 4th amendment rights to privacy have been posted on the internet for all to see. Its time for everyone to be prepared to push back if these folks come to your homes without a warrant seeking any type of firearm information from you. You have reason to be seriously concerned about your freedom.

  8. I own 3 AR’s now. Also you don’t have to own an AR15 to have a firearm in 5.56. But the fascists don’t understand that.

    • Among the MYRIAD of things the fascists don’t understand. Any idiot knows that the 5.56/.223 is basically a varmint cartridge. Sure, you can kill a person or a deer with a 5.56 (if you are lucky and/or accurate), but only a moron (dacian, are you reading this??) would CHOOSE a 5.56 as a deer rifle. 6.5 or .243 is, practically, about the smallest caliber a responsible hunter would use for hunting deer.

      They also don’t understand that .30, 7.62, .300 are FAR more deadly than any 5.56. And that an AR-15 comes in many calibers. And, and, and . . . They are morons. They know NOTHING about firearms, ballistics, calibers, terminal ballistics, etc.

      Just like their only political mantra is “Orange Man Bad!”, their only firearms mantra is “Black Guns Bad!!”. Unless you can reduce a policy position to a (simple) bumper sticker, they can’t understand it. Cognition is not their strong suit.

      • “They know NOTHING about firearms, ballistics, calibers, terminal ballistics, etc.”

        This is why I say the Liberals and the Left are stupid on purpose. They go out of their way to not learn about firearms. And are actively trying to prevent other people from learning about them. They are completely against teaching people about the safety rules when handling guns.

        They would much rather have accidental deaths caused by firearms. It feeds their narrative so they can ban guns completely. And work towards confiscating the guns that everyone else has.

  9. I don’t really want or need another firearm, but goddamn it, I’m going to buy one just to piss off a liberal.

    But I won’t submit to another NICS check.

  10. We have to be willing to use them. I think we are more dangerous, we don’t hold them sideways. I am willing and I have been hand loading for a good while now. Any time you see video of the thugs taking return fire they soil themselves as they run away.” He shot my arm off”

    • NTexas,

      Did your parents have any children that lived?? Were your parents ever even formally introduced??

      Go away, and STOP F***ING SHOUTING AT US, YOU @$$HOLE!!!!!

    • Yep you will become a refugee and begging the Marxist to give you food and shelter, when the Republic of Texas arises!!!!
