'USA Today' reports that the recent increased calls for new gun controls have again fuelled increased sales.
The FBI reports that the August figures for Dealers background checks for gun purchases have peaked at 1.7 Million - the highest recorded figure since August 1968. (June & July also recorded new highs).
National Shooting Sports Foundation spokesperson said " Whenever there is a call for gun control, sales increase".
While the FBI doesn't track actual numbers of gun sales - the figures are a strong indication of a market upswing.
