    Gun Manufactures.... thank you Mr. Obama

    ** the number of background checks in Obama's first term is 91.1% higher than President George W. Bush's first-term**

    The paradox of liberalism at work, always the opposite of their intent. Just like the so called "war on poverty", how is that working out after trillions spent?

    65.4 Million Gun Purchases Since Obama Took Office, 91% More Than Bush's First-Term Total

    There have been 65,376,373 background checks completed for Americans purchasing firearms since February of 2009, the first full month of Barack Obama's presidency.

    According to data compiled by the FBI, the number of Americans purchasing guns has skyrocketed since Obama was elected.

    In 2009, there were 13,984,953 background checks for Americans buying firearms. If we subtract the 1,212,860 checks completed in the month of January, the total checks for the year under Obama were 12,772,090.

    For 2010, background checks totaled 14,320,489. In 2011, checks were 16,336,732, and in 2012, 19,463,832. Background checks for the month of January 2013 were 2,483,230.

    This totals 65,376,373 background checks completed since President Obama's first full month in office, or 44,748 background checks per day!

    By comparison, the number of background checks in Obama's first term is 91.1% higher than President George W. Bush's first-term total of 34,214,066.
