    Default Gun background checks hit record high in June, a sign of booming sales, FBI reveals

    Firearm-related background checks reached 3.9 million in June, the most since the tracking system was created more than two decades ago amid multiple crises in the coronavirus pandemic, an economic downfall and protests over police brutality and racial injustice.

    The lastest numbers are the most since the FBI began tracking such checks in 1998.

    More than 19 million checks -- a key barometer for gun sales -- were conducted in the first half of 2020, more than all of 2012 and many years prior. Gun sales usually see an uptick in presidential election years over fears an incoming president could restrict access to firearms.

    I happen to know for a fact that more than 3.9 million firearms were purchased in June. Ask me how I know.
    Take away the soap box, take away the ballot box and all that's left is the cartridge box.

    A friend of mine is looking for his first gun. We hit a couple of gun stores yesterday. It*s the first time I*ve been in one since this all began. The display cases were mostly empty and very high prices on what they had. It is a sellers market.

    I*ve read how people are buying guns and have watched online prices go up....... But the visual of the near empty display cases really brings home how crazy things are.
