FBI Gets Record Number of Requests for Background Checks on Black Friday, Blasting Last Years Record

The Federal Bureau of Investigation received a record-breaking number of background check requests this Black Friday.

In 2016, they received a total of 185,713 background check requests on gun sales for Black Friday? This year? A whopping 203,086. I think I know what I’m getting for Christmas.

As you know, anyone who wants to legally purchase a gun from an FFL needs to undergo a background check through the FBI before they can own the firearm. Different states have different laws, with some postponing the sale for 7 days before the buyer can actually take the gun home.
