Black Friday breaks record with 185K gun background checks

“More Americans had their backgrounds checked purchasing guns on Black Friday than any day in the on record, according to data released by the FBI this week.

The National Instant Criminal Background Check System processed 185,345 requests on Nov. 27, one of the largest retail sales days in the country.

“This was an approximate 5% increase over the 175,754 received on Black Friday 2014,” wrote Stephen Fischer, the FBI’s chief of multimedia productions. “The previous high for receipts were the 177,170 received on 12/21/2012.”

And it just continues

It’s actually kind of cute watching the regular folks wake up

They get a funny look on their face

I actually had someone tell me a short while ago that if I was smart I would stock up on ammo

I didn’t say anything, I just smiled
