Black Friday turned into FBI background check day for guns.
This year’s Black Friday set a single-day record for the number of FBI firearms background checks.
The National Instant Criminal Background Check System processed 185,713 transactions, surpassing the previous single-day record set on Black Friday 2015, said FBI spokesman Stephen Fischer. The previous record was 185,345 checks in one day.
The number of background checks conducted across the country has increased at a record pace in recent years, with the 23.1 million checks reported by the FBI in 2015 eclipsing the previous record of nearly 21.1 million checks in 2013.
