The FBI’s National Instant Background Check System processed 1,795,102 applications to buy a firearm in September. That represents a new record: 335,739 more checks than the previous September high set in 2012, or a 23 percent increase.

So lets be all conspiracy and stuff.
So knowing how the American public react to shootings, buy more guns. Maybe the NRA are using mkultra to get people to commit mass shootings to increase their gun sales! Or, maybe the NRA is paying doctors to prescribe more mental health meds!

Perhaps it is fear, but I have a feeling many things are involved. I do notice many more new faces at all the gun range I frequently visit. Also have anyone been to a gun store in the weekend lately? I see at least few new customers looking for their 1st guns every time I go. I see a change, a quiet change on how many in the new generation are viewing gun ownership, both for self protection and sports. The face of gun ownership is changing, there are now more minority and female shooters than ever before. Hell we have a couple of schools around here with rifle teams again.
