During the week beginning last Monday, Nov. 3, 2008, and ending yesterday, Nov. 9, 2008, 8,525 firearm transactions were handled by TICS. Saturday, Nov. 8th was a peak day, with 2,524 transactions. This was unprecedented for November. Only one other day since TICS opened on Nov. 1, 1998 has surpassed last Saturday in the number of transactions - December 21, 2006 saw 2,600 transactions. TICS statistics seem to support all other reports that this will be a peak year for gun sales.
We know Bryan Miller says that the reported increase in gun sales is a conspiracy propagated by the evil gun lobby. Looks like those evil Wall Street analysts are in on the conspiracy too. And I’m sure the FBI is also lying when it reports an increase in NICS activity. And based on Cabela’s numbers, it doesn’t look like it’s the hunters buying.
