A RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS …
As reported at USA Today, more Americans had their backgrounds checked to purchase guns on this past Black Friday than any day in the on record. According to FBI, the National Instant Criminal Background Check System processed 185,345 requests on November 27, one of the largest retail sales days in the country. The more Barack Obama threatens to impact the 2nd Amendment with his gun control agenda, the more Americans buy guns. Not because of any need, but because it is their Constitutional Right!
More Americans had their backgrounds checked purchasing guns on Black Friday than any day in the on record, according to data released by the FBI this week.
The National Instant Criminal Background Check System processed 185,345 requests on Nov. 27, one of the largest retail sales days in the country.
“This was an approximate 5% increase over the 175,754 received on Black Friday 2014,” wrote Stephen Fischer, the FBI’s chief of multimedia productions. “The previous high for receipts were the 177,170 received on 12/21/2012.”
Previous spikes for background checks, conducted before a gun buyer can obtain a firearm, occurred after prominent mass shootings, like in December 2012 in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
Other Black Friday shopping days in 2014, 2013 and 2012 occupied the FBI’s “top 10″ list of the most background checks processed in a 24-hour period.
