How to Become a Bounty Hunter


[quads id=3]

Gun ownership appears to be on a steady rise, but the motive is in dispute.

Over the past decade, the number of federally mandated background checks of prospective gun purchases has nearly doubled, the USA Today reports, citing FBI records.

Nearly 17 million people received background checks already this year, up from 8.5 million in 2002, the USA Today wrote.

If you ask gun-rights advocates what’s causing the spike, they’ll tell you it’s the increase in popularity of hunting, fears that the Obama administration will restrict firearm purchases and more lenient concealed weapon laws.

But gun control advocates say the rise predominately is from existing gun owners who believe there is a plot to take away their weapons, the USA Today reported.

Although President Obama hasn’t signed gun-control legislation, some worry he will during the second term.

“People expect a siege on the Second Amendment (right to bear arms),” National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre told the USA Today.
