Gun purchase background checks, year over year

The National Shooting Sports Foundation has released some graphs that reflect annual trends in firearms purchases based on data from purchaser background checks.

Here's one showing a year over year rise, but also the December 2012 surge is also very apparent.

Note the NSSF chart uses "adjusted" NICS stats. Adjusted levels for 2012
attempt to factor out NICS checks used as background checks done in certain states in conjunction with carry permit applications or renewals.
