USA Today reports that Black Friday 2011 saw an increase in gun background checks of 32% over last year, totaling some 129,166 mandatory FBI background check requests. Because gun owners only have to submit one background check when purchasing multiple firearms, it is believed that gun sales exceeded 130,000 in a single day.
Local shops are reporting that they are busier than ever, with Wholesale Sports in Kennewick, WA reporting a 35% increase in sales. Other gun retailers reported similar increases.
