The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) released their adjusted figures for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) for March 2024.

The data shows a 7.4% decrease from March 2023, with 1,442,061 checks compared to the previous year’s 1,556,492. Despite this decline, March marks the 56th consecutive month exceeding 1 million adjusted background checks.

Mark Oliva, the NSSF’s managing director of public affairs, criticized President Biden’s approach to firearms.

“These background checks continue to show that President Joe Biden’s demonization of the firearm industry and law-abiding citizens exercising their Second Amendment rights is out of step with America,” he said.

Oliva highlighted that over 1.4 million Americans legally purchased firearms in March. He argued that Biden’s policies, focusing on gun control rather than criminal accountability, are unpopular and ineffective.

The NSSF’s analysis notes that these statistics don’t equate to direct firearm sales. Due to varied state laws and market conditions, a one-to-one correlation between background checks and sales is not possible.

The adjusted NICS figures exclude certain permit checks and rechecks, providing insight into market trends and consumer behavior towards firearm purchases.

Oliva emphasized that Americans are choosing to lawfully and responsibly exercise their rights, rejecting the administration’s gun control measures.

He specifically criticized the establishment of an office by Biden, run by gun control lobbyists, and recent measures to spread gun confiscation laws without adequate Due Process.

The NSSF’s report suggests a disconnect between the Biden administration’s policies and the public’s stance on firearm ownership and rights.

“These figures demonstrate that Americans reject those misguided policies and choose to lawfully and responsibly exercise their rights to keep and bear arms,” said Oliva.

    Not surprised the numbers are down, look at the economy. The prices of firearms, ammo, and reloading supplies continue to rise. Likewise the prices on food, fuel and every other necessity continues to rise. People are left with making a choice, buy another gun or buy food, fuel or medicine.

    It’s only going to get worse until this economy is fixed.
