    Gun Sales Set Another Monthly Record
    Gun sales at all time high for 7th month in a row, set Black Friday record

    The FBI conducted a record number of background checks driven by firearms sales for the month of November, indicating that gun sales were at an all time high for the seventh month in a row.

    The Bureau processed 2,243,030 checks through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System in November, an increase of 236,111 checks over the previous record set in 2012. Background checks have continually set monthly records since May.

    The numbers were fueled in part by record sales performed on Black Friday. The FBI did 175,754 checks no that day alone, the Trace reports.

    Since all firearms transactions done through licensed gun dealers, including all new gun purchases, require a background check, the number of checks done in a month is considered a reliable measure of gun sales.

    Makes me wonder about the connection to all these shootings and the NRA.
