Black Friday Gun Sales Hit New Record High
#1
Black Friday gun sales hit an all time record high last week with demand for new firearms so overwhelming that it caused outages at the FBI background check center on two separate occasions.

Fueled by fears that the Obama administration will go after gun rights during a lame duck term, the FBI reported 154,873 background check requests on Friday – a 20 per cent increase on last year’s record total of 129,166 checks.

The number of guns sold could actually be double or more that figure because only one background check is recorded per sale even if buyers purchase multiple firearms.

Quote:TheBlaze has also reached out to The FBI in order to confirm the number of background checks handled this week and also to verify that an outside agency processes those applications. All calls to the NICS line were met with a busy signal. However, we did make contact with Stephen Fischer in the FBI’s Public Information office. He provided the following hard numbers on background checks processed over the Thanksgiving weekend.

Black Friday 2012 (11/23/12) – 154,873 Black Friday 2011 (11/25/11) – 129,166
An increase of more than 20% from the previous Black Friday

Saturday (11/24/12) – 88,419 Saturday (11/26/11) – 59,957
A staggering increase over 47% higher than the previous year.



Sunday (11/25/12) – 40,131 Sunday (11/27/11) — 26,069
an increase of more than 50% than the previous year


Total Weekend Background Checks Processed 2012 — 283,423
Total Weekend Background Checks Processed 2011 — 215,192

(The weekend figures)That is an increase of more than 30% year over year.

Maybe the sub-cockle area, maybe the liver, maybe even the colon.

I hope there are a lot of NEW gun owners, and not just us buying up all the guns.

We need as many people as possible in the US owning guns.
