Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted over 200000 gun background checks on Black Friday

Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted over 200000 gun background checks on Black Friday

But it does suggest that firearms could have been the exception to what appeared to be generally sluggish Black Friday sales in brick-and-mortar stores.

That means Black Friday 2017 set a new record for the number of gun background checksdemanded in a single day, USA Today reported.

Black Friday, the day after the US Thanksgiving holiday, had previously set records for the most instant Federal Bureau of Investigation background checks in 2015 and 2016. Kelley staged a mass shooting on November 5, killing at least 25 at a church in Sutherland Springs in Wilson County.

Prospective gun owners filed 203,086 requests to the FBI's National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

The number of background checks shouldn't be seen as a precise barometer for sales because one person can buy several firearms with one transaction.

The previous record set past year was also on Black Friday.

Interestingly enough, gun sales have gone down since President Trump has taken office.

Current promotions on firearms include rebates and discounts on pistols and shotguns at Cabela's, as well as deals on guns at Walmart and other retailers. "Spikes in gun sales regularly occur following mass shootings, often over concerns of increased gun regulation or because people are looking for increased protection", TIME reported.

The gunman who killed 26 people at the First Baptist Church earlier this month should never have been carrying a gun.

The NCIS is to created to allow instant background checks on prospective gun owners.

"People should not be able to make their own assault weapons and other guns when those individuals are risky and legally barred from buying guns", Robyn Thomas, executive director of the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, told USA Today.

The review was ordered by Attorney General Jeff Sessions following revelations that a gun rampage at a Texas church which left 26 people dead was committed by a former United States airman who had been legally stripped of his right to own weapons. The objective of the review is to determine why necessary information was not being properly reported to the NICS database.
