I have to say right up front that I am a bog proponent of not using wasp spray as I think there are several significant downsides.

FBI Releases October Background Check Numbers

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.

Nick sits down with our next volunteer and asks her where she learned about the importance of safety. Jennifer explains that her parents were instrumental in teaching her to always practice self-awareness. Throughout these social experiments, Nick observes that the majority of volunteers are fearful, which brings him to an important conclusion about fear versus awareness.
