On Tuesday afternoon, the FBI released the October report from the National Instant Background Check System (NICS). Over 2.3 million background checks were performed during the last month, an increase from 1.9 million in September.

What’s most interesting is the dramatic rise in overall background checks within the last decade.  Only 1.1 million background checks were performed during October 2008, and that rose slightly to just 1.6 million background checks in October of 2012.

Is this increase just a general trend in gun ownership, or is this a result of Second Amendment lovers recovering from an Obama presidency and preparing for Hillary Clinton?

Here are some background check numbers from the October report broken down by states of interest:

  • California – 180,968
  • Florida – 111,657
  • Illinois – 169,348
  • Pennsylvania – 103,05
  • Texas – 144,467

And the big winner? Kentucky performed 378,973 background checks last month!

Every state had an increase in background checks, except Louisiana. The Bayou State had a 1 percent drop since September.
