Radio news this morning mentioned that VA's NICS checks were up 35% in 2012, compared to 2011. They did 6 million checks, with nearly a third of those in just November and December. Pretty impressive numbers, for a public that "wants tighter gun control".

I'm still not buying the vast majority of our citizens want gun control. The media and lib elites, yes. Question is, how do we stop the lib elites in DC from trying to usurp the US Const?

I asked a salesman at my LGS what percentage had his background checks gone up this past 2 months, and he said 50-60% at least. :)
