Every year we try to update this report just to put things into perspective for those who think it wise to attempt to disarm the law abiding citizens of the United States. Every year this number has been pretty consistent and its honestly pretty impressive.
According to the Tribunist the FBI reports that over 200,000 background check requests associated with the purchase of a firearm were submitted to the agency on Black Friday, marking the second highest gun sales day ever. The previous record was set on the day after Thanksgiving in 2016. In both 2017 and 2016, enough guns were potentially purchased on Black Friday to arm every active duty United States Marine.
USA Today reported that, in total, the FBI states they fielded 202,465 requests during the 24-hour period associated with Black Friday, just under the prior record of 203,086…
Though the record wasnt beaten, we just have one thing to say.
Better luck next year!
