Good news, and an indication Americans are still determined to remain free.
On Black Friday, the FBI was flooded with the hightest number of background checks in one day for gun purchases.
There were 203,086 requests received by the bureau’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System, USA Today reported.
The previous single-day records, both on Black Friday, were 185,713 last year and 185,345 in 2015.
Gun checks are not a measure of the actual number of guns sold. Multiple firearms can be purchased in a single transaction by the same buyer.
