300,000,000 in the last 20 years.
Now, lot's of them will be used firearms changing hands. On the other hand, many of these checks will be multiple purchases. Do these balance out? To a degree I suppose.
Still.... 300,000,000 in the last twenty years, with over 6,000,000 firearms purchased in the last three months alone.
Um..... this may indicate something or other about the thinking of people in the USA. Not sure what, but I suspect it's significant.
One thing is, I've certainly been shirking. None of the recent checks can be assigned to me. I should get my ass in gear...
