That's a condition of not knowing how the Federal Fiscal year is accounted and, yet discussing Budgets.
Ok, then look at fiscal years under Bush vs under Obama.
Does it really change the trend?

Not with any facts to back their denial.

Despite what some media commentators have claimed, existing gun laws apply just as much to gun shows as they do to any other place where guns are sold. Since 1938, persons selling firearms have been required to obtain a federal firearms license. If a dealer sells a gun from a storefront, from a room in his home or from a table at a gun show, the rules are exactly the same: he can get authorization from the FBI for the sale only after the FBI runs its “instant” background check (which often takes days to complete). As a result, firearms are the most severely regulated consumer product in the United States — the only product for which FBI permission is required for every single sale.

.......if sold from a federally licensed dealer. Private sales are not regulated.

The bill the Hitlerites are looking at will include hand guns. I tried to warn you Obama would come for the guns, and you wouldn't listen. He will have a hard time with the yellow dog Democrats, and the Rpublicans are backing away from controls after they waited so long to act.

Reality can be so revealing if one is prepared to examine it objectively. Democrats are working to destroy our country as we have known it, and they are doing a very good job. Harry Reid is a piece of smoldering shit!

Obama was not Coronated. We do not have an african King. If you truly believe in the Constitution contact your Congress person, and tell them you will work to remove them from their cushy job in the next election if they vote to remove the handgun, or further restrict gun ownership. They like sitting around doing pretty much nothing, so if enough people respond they will listen. Democrats talk a good game, but are too lazy to get out the vote. The NRA is more popular then Obama right now.

I don't know why you are giving yourself so much credit.

There has been strong national gun control from the 1930's forward.
