News of the slump in gun sales might be premature. From AmmoLand:

FBI released March’s background check numbers to reveal “it was the biggest March in the National Instant Criminal Background Check (NICS) system’s history.”

According to, the raw data shows “2,488,842 total background checks were preformed in March 2014.”

This is up 200,000 checks over March last year and 400,000 checks over the number that took place in February.

Weirdly, North Carolina accounted for over one-fifth of them; 541,978! What do they know that we don’t?
