    Default Black Friday Record NICS checks

    .
    Black Friday Posts New Single-Day Record For Gun Background-Checks


    Despite gunmaker stocks slumping as 2017 sees the biggest year-to-date decline in background check requests for firearms sales, USA Today reports that The FBI was flooded Friday with more than 200,000 background check requests for gun purchases, setting a new single day record, the bureau reported Saturday.

    While gun sales have been surging in recent years - largely driven by fears of more restrictive gun laws proposed during the Obama administration - gun check numbers had leveled off in the first months of the pro-gun Trump administration...

    But, as USA Today notes, in all, the FBI fielded 203,086 requests on Black Friday, up from the previous single-day highs of 185,713 last year and 185,345 in 2015. The two previous records also were recorded on Black Friday.

    Gun checks, required for purchases at federally licensed firearm dealers, are not a measure of actual gun sales.

    The number of firearms sold Friday is likely higher because multiple firearms can be included in one transaction by a single buyer.

    PA considers them as two separate registrations.
    We now live in a lawless era where laws no longer apply to government officials.

    It's amazing what lower prices can do for a market. That is my analysis, but It is possible I am in error. I am supposing more units, but at less cost each. Until we see the dollars to go along we will not know for sure.

    IMHO and that's all it is- gun sales are doing well (due to incredibly low prices) but the industry not so much, lots of layoffs, due to incredibly low prices

    Sales in general are not crashing, but have definitely leveled off since Trump was elected instead of Hilary and the threat of Obama is gone. Black Friday is a huge (along with cyber Monday now also) sales day. It’s no coincidence that a huge amount of firearms are sold on Black Friday.
