FBI Conducts Record Background Checks for Guns in 2015

The FBI conducted more background checks for guns in 2015 than any previous year, the bureau announced today. 

While background checks aren’t a precise measure of the number of guns purchased, they do represent a majority of the guns that were sold. FBI background checks are done through a federally licensed dealer, where most firearms are sold.

The gun sales follow a series of mass shootings that often motivate people to buy firearms.

The FBI conducted 23.1 million guns in 2015, more than double the amount in 2007.

December was the busiest month, with 3.3 million background checks.

Federal background checks began in November 1998.

FBI Seeks Peaceful Ending to Armed Standoff at Federal Building in Oregon

A march on Saturday to protest father-and-son ranchers who were convicted of arson has escalated to an armed occupation of a federal building in Oregon.

There’s just one problem: The protesters haven’t said what they want, CNN reports. 

Armed protesters took over the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge building near Burns.

“We will be here as long as it takes,” protest spokesman Ammon Bundy told CNN by phone from inside the refuge.

“We have no intentions of using force upon anyone, (but) if force is used against us, we would defend ourselves.”

Bundy is the son of Cliven Bundy, the rancher who instigated a standoff with federal authorities in Nevada.

“This is about taking the correct stand without harming anybody to restore the land and resources to the people so people across the country can begin thriving again,” he said.

Federal authorities said they are trying to avoid violence and so far have taken a patient approach.

Beginning this year, the FBI will begin tracking the animal cruelty cases to keep an eye on the worst abuse in the country, WJZ Baltimore reports. 

Animal rights group are applauding the efforts and point out that humans who commit crimes against animals also commit crimes against people.

Many of the goriest animal abuse cases involve dog fighting rings that leave canines for dead.

The FBI expects to track thousands of cases this year alone.

“The hope is by collecting this data, different jurisdictions–law enforcement–will be able to use it as a tool for intervention and prevention,” said Katie Flory, of the Anti-Animal Abuse Advisory Commission.

Mexican Drug Traffickers Are Hacking Border Patrol Drones to Trick Agents

By Steve Neavling

Drug traffickers are hacking Border Patrol drones along the U.S.-Mexico border to confuse federal investigators, reports. 

Drones used by law enforcement are not as expensive and hack-proof like the ones flown by the U.S. military.

As explains it, “standard drone modules need to be deleted including the one that ensures the security of the drone in the case of GPS spoofing.”

What happens is, attackers send fake GPS data to receivers on the drone, making it difficult to track would-be traffickers.

Due to fake coordinates, federal agents are tricked into believing the drone is over one area when in fact it’s over an entirely different area.
