Black Friday 2017 Breaks New Record on Firearm Background Checks at Over 200,000

On Friday, the FBI processed over 203,086 background checks for firearms, breaking a new daily record.   That number surpassed last year’s record of 185,713 and 2015’s record of 185,345.   This number only represents the amount of background checks conducted and not the number of actual firearms sold since many customers bought more than one item.

The uptick in background checks comes amidst news that Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered a sweeping review of the firearms purchasing system.
