GUNS RIGHTS ARE ABOUT TO BE ASSAULTED...........

GUNS RIGHTS ARE ABOUT TO BE ASSAULTED

With all of the recent events, they are going to come for your guns.....

Democratic hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Martin O'Malley, along with Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders, echoed President Barack Obama's call for stricter gun control. "We have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world," Obama told CBS News Wednesday.

AMERICANS SEEM TO KNOW WHAT IS COMING

Americans did buy one thing on black Friday. As USA Today reports, more Americans had their backgrounds checked purchasing guns on Black Friday than any day on record, according to data released by the FBI this week.

Friday's purchases came the same day as the mass shooting incident in Colorado Springs that killed three people and injured nine others.

On Saturday, President Obama called for tighter controls of "weapons of war" in the wake of the Planned Parenthood shooting.

"This is not normal," Obama said. "We can't let it become normal. If we truly care about this — if we're going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience — then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough."

As USA Today reports,

The National Instant Criminal Background Check System processed 185,345 requests on Nov. 27.

"This was an approximate 5% increase over the 175,754 received on Black Friday 2014," wrote Stephen Fischer, the FBI's chief of multimedia productions. "The previous high for receipts were the 177,170 received on 12/21/2012."

Previous spikes for background checks, conducted before a gun buyer can obtain a firearm, occurred after prominent mass shootings, like in December 2012 in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

It appears Thanksgiving is a popular time in America to reaffirm the right to bear arms as other Black Friday shopping days in 2014, 2013 and 2012 occupied the FBI's "top 10" list of the most background checks processed in a 24-hour period.


The overall trend of rising background checks continues...
