Black Friday 2016 Set New Record For Gun Sales

posted on November 30, 2016

Yesterday we reported that many gun stores across the nation saw a large turnout on Black Friday. Several owners and employees noted that the crowds seemed even larger than last year’s, but without any sort of official tally, no one could be sure. 

Until, that is, the FBI released the data on the number of NICS checks conducted on November 25. 

As it turned out, the number of Black Friday background checks conducted this year totaled 185,713—surpassing 2015’s record-breaking total by almost 400. In other words, despite the Grinch-like predictions from the “mainstream” media, more guns were sold on Black Friday 2016 than on any previous Black Friday on record.  

And while data for the entire month of November won’t be available until tomorrow, it’s looking like the penultimate month of 2016 could set a record all its own. We’ll keep you posted.
