Despite calls for more gun control, more guns being sought:
As President Obama continues to push for new gun control measures, new FBI data shows that January was the second-highest month on record for gun background checks.
FBI figures posted Tuesday show there were 2,495,400 background checks done through the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System, known as NICS. The number was more than 1 million higher than any previous January.
I don’t get it. Don’t people trust the president to protect them? To do the right thing? To put individual liberty and personal safety above the petty realm of politics?
What are we, a nation of 2,495,400 racists?
