Honest Americans Bought Enough Guns in November and December to Outfit the Entire Chinese and Indian Armies
The Obama Administration is the number one threat to the nation’s gun rights advocates. First he tried Fast and Furious, that ill fated Obama gun running scheme, to arm Mexican drug cartels.
In the four years since Barack Obama was first elected president in November 2008, an estimated 67 million firearms have been purchased in the United States.
In November a record 2 million guns were sold in America. This was followed up by another record in December. 2.7 million guns were sold in America in the last month of 2012.

To put this in perspective.
Chinese and Indian Standing Army Numbers:
– There are 2.29 active members in the Chines Army.
– There are 1.13 active members in the Indian Army.
There were enough guns sold in the US in November and December to outfit each active member of the Chines and Indian armies with a brand new gun.
No word on how much ammo was boughts. Ammo for dallars, anybody know the exchange rate on the open market.
Apparently “trust us, we are from the government” doesn’t work for a lot of people.
Meamwhile the increased gun ownership has clearly put the kabash on crime, it is steadily dropping.
