Following DEMAND in Personal Defense (Update)
Jeffrey C. Borneman | January 8, 2015
The FBI's December figures show 2.3 million background checks for gun purchasers were conducted in one month alone. Americans continued to arm themselves in 2014. While violent crime is actually down in the United States, car-jackings, home invasions and the constant media focus of mob action has American's feeling an intense unease for their personal safety. This, in turn, continues to spur a consistent and increasing DEMAND for personal Defense.
"The FBI made this clear in their report: '[The 2.3 million] represents the number of firearm background checks initiated through the NICS. They do not represent the number of firearms sold'", reported by Breitbart.
Investors should note that the use of the background checks for firearm purchasing is considered baseline DEMAND only; meaning that many more firearms traded hands privately, And while the Christmas season tends to show a sharp increase in firearm sales, the trend-line continues upward as a poll released today states that 74% of American's now fear a terror-attack on US soil is imminent.
