FBI Stats Show Gun Sales on the Rise

Depending on where you stand on the issue of gun sales, here’s good or bad news:

Gun sales continue to rise in this country, according to the Dayton Daily News.

The paper based its conclusion on FBI background checks for gun sales — a good indicator of sales — which increased to 14.4 million in 2010 from 8.5 million in 2003, according to the FBI.

The paper reported a record number of firearm background checks in Ohio.

In Ohio, during the first seven months of this year, the FBI conducted 247,847 background checks for firearm purchases at gun sellers, up 17.7 percent from the same period in 2010, 9.2 percent from 2009 and 42.4 percent from 2008, the paper reported, citing the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

The paper reported that Andrew M. Molchan, director of the Professional Gun Retailers Association, said gun sales have been on the upswing nationwide for the last six years following a Supreme Court ruling lifting gun bans in major cities including Washington.
