    Smile Firearms Sales Set New Record.

    U.S.A. Ė-(AmmoLand.com)- During October of 2020 National Instant background Check System (NICS) numbers of checks and numbers of gun sales set new records for the month. The number of checks was 3.3 million. The calculated number of gun sales was more than 1.74 million. The previous record for checks in October was last year, with over 2.39 million checks.

    About half of the background checks done in the NICS system are now done for carry permits or carry permit rechecks.
    The previous record for gun sales in October was in 2016, with over 1.32 million gun sales.
    In October 2019, the number of gun sales was 1.06 million. The October 2020 number is 1.64 times the number sold in October 2019. This is in line with the trend for 2020, which is about 1.7 times that of 2019.
    1.74 million guns sold in October of 2020 brings the total sold in 2020 to about 16.84 million in 2020. To break past 20 million for the year, 3.16 million will need to be sold in November and December, or about 1.58 million per month. Those numbers can easily be achieved. November and December are traditionally high months for gun sales.

    2020 is not a traditional year. Politics and the fear of unrest, of police ordered to stand down in many Democrat cities and states, of a push to ban the most effective defensive tools such as semi-automatic rifles and pistols, have pushed gun sales to all-time records.

    The election did nothing to alleviate the apprehensions which have lead to record gun sales in 2020. Former Vice-President Biden has repeatedly called for mandated turn-ins or registration of the most popular rifles in the country. His running-mate, Senator Kamala Harris, former Attorney General of California, has a long history of extreme anti-right to keep and bear arms positions.

    The nail-biting character of the election, and the extreme distrust of the election numbers generated by the conduct of the media, portend more record levels of gun sales and background checks.

    Efforts by the Democrats to restrict Second Amendment rights guarantee high gun sales.

    More than 20 million guns will be sold in 2020. According to NSSF, about 40% of those sales are to new gun owners. Most of the sales are for self-defense. Higher percentages than ever before are to minorities and women.

    At the end of October, there were, according to the calculated numbers, over 458 million privately owned guns in the USA.

    By the end of 2020, there will be more than 460 million privately owned guns in the United States of America.

    I imagine it’s slowed down a bit since there’s nothing much to buy.

    Call any local shop. Even at crazy prices everything is flying off the shelves.

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    A NICS check doesn’t track firearms.

    Yep, I see those numbers too. What I find odd is that I’m not seeing guns in stores or much of anything online, even for a minute. If you told me that we’ve reached record numbers of ammo sales for October I’d find it just as odd. I guess it could be that there’s someone waiting with their hand out for each and every firearm rolling off an assembly line, but I’ve never known US industry and sales to work so fluid, so efficiently. If we started October with Gun stores and online retailers chock full of inventory and by the end of the month they were bone dry, the numbers wouldn’t seem that odd to me.
    I imagine gun manufacturers must be climbing rungs on the stock exchange as well if business is this good.

    Also, it looks like roughly half (if it’s one firearm per background check) of the background checks turned up a no go? Half? I’d expect to see the number of firearms sold exceed the number of background checks

    This detailed PDF can give you more details on the background checks: https://www.fbi.gov/file-repository/...state_type.pdf

    Below is October's. Not sure why it shows shows 3,268,909 when the other PDF shows 3,305,465 but it's close enough for me.

    Here's data from Jan 2019 - Oct 2020 in a spreadsheet format.
