(January 7, 2014) — The FBI has released new statistics on NICS background checks showing 2013 gun sales hit a new record. The total number of background checks conducted for gun sales last year add up to 21,093,273, beating the previous 2012 record of 19,592,303 by 1,500,970. Texas conducted the most background checks with 1,633,278. Kentucky came is second with 1,578,331 background checks conducted.
These significant numbers came during a year when Democrats and the White House attempted multiple times to push through new gun control measures.
In 2013, President Obama released a number of executive actions on gun control and wasted no time in 2014 doing the same. States that implemented more gun control measures in 2013 saw a spike in gun sales, especially in relation to population.
Gun sales in Maryland doubled, going from 136,604 in 2012 to 231,361 in 2013.
In 2012, Colorado conducted 414,838 checks, in 2013, there were 514,658.
In Connecticut, 237,496 checks were conducted in 2012 and in 2013, 294,338 went through the system. Background checks in New York, home of the SAFE Act, also went up in 2013.
So who’s buying these guns? According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation and NBC news, women are the fastest growing demographic of gun owners.
President Obama is indeed the best gun salesman in US.history.
DHS Employee Tasked With Buying Weapons
Has a Website Dedicated to Murdering White People

(August 23, 2013) — Ayo Kimathi is an employee at the Department of Homeland Security. His job description? Purchasing ammunition and weapons. He’s also the owner of waronthehorizon.com, a website dedicated to advocating the murder of white people. He’s also a homophobe.
The website was discovered by the Southern Poverty Law Center and has been listed under the Hate Watch page.
By day, Ayo Kimathi works for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as a small business specialist in a unit that buys such items as handcuffs, ammunition and guns.
Off-duty, he calls himself â€œthe Irritated Genie.â€ Heâ€™s a gay-bashing, revenge-seeking black nationalist who advocates on his website â€“ War on the Horizon â€“ the mass murder of whites and the â€œethnic cleansingâ€ of â€œblack-skinned Uncle Tom race traitors.â€
â€œWarfare is eminent,â€ the website declares, â€œand in order for Black people to survive the 21st century, we are going to have to kill a lot of whites â€“ more than our Christian hearts can possibly count.â€
A former supervisor of Kimathiâ€™s at the DHS told Hatewatch, â€œEverybody in the office is afraid of him.â€
â€œThis guy is filled with hate,â€ the supervisor continued. â€œPeople are afraid he will come in with a gun someday and go postal. I am astounded, heâ€™s employed by the federal government, let alone Homeland Security.”
Kimathi was given permission to launch a website he told supervisors would be used to sell concert tickets.
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has responded to the site and Kimathi’s DHS employment as “unflippingbelievable.”
So, the Federal Government, er, We The People, are employing someone at the Department of Homeland Security whose side job is running a hate website advocating ethnic cleansing and other despicable acts?! This official is promoting a race war. His fellow employees say theyâ€™re â€œastoundedâ€ he is employed by the taxpayers. His side â€œjobâ€ running the â€œWar On the Horizonâ€ website was reportedly approved by supervisors. Really, Fed? Really?
Friends, let your government know we deserve better; we demand better. Weâ€™re paying the tab.
Hey, remember when DHS issued an entire report about “right-wing extremists?” Maybe they should issue a report about the black supremacist working in their ammunition department.
