Voting With Their Wallets. The American people continue to arm themselves at an unprecedented rate.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation gives us the latest NICS numbers.
As Robert Farago observes, "the more people who own guns in America the harder it is to restrict them."

NICS does not count folks with a CCW who don't go through NICS.

People with a CCW still have to go through NICS (thank you, NRA!/sarc), they just don't have to wait the waiting period. In my state anyhow.
