NICS checks down slightly over January, but up, too!

Looked up on the FBI's handy dandy website. (PDF)

2,309,393 checks in February 2013 versus 2,495,440 checks in January, a 7% drop. So, are 2.3 millions guns the just in time capabilities of the country? Discounting, of course, that no guns I or others bought received a NICS check by virtue of my Permit to Carry Weapons making me good to go at 4473 time.

If you take it on a day by day basis, more checks were done daily in February than in January due to the 3 fewer days. 80498 checks per day in January, 82478 checks per day in February. At this daily pace, 29 to 30 million checks will be done by the end of the year.

I am damn proud of my fellow Americans. Keep it up, folks!
