Americans Bought Enough Guns on Black Friday to Arm the Marine Corps – Yet Again!

According to the FBI, over 200,000 background check requests associated with the purchase of a firearm were submitted to the agency on Black Friday, marking the second highest gun sales day ever. The previous record was set on the day after Thanksgiving in 2016. In both 2017 and 2016, enough guns were potentially purchased on Black Friday to arm every active duty United States Marine.

USA Today reported that, in total, the FBI states they fielded 202,465 requests during the 24-hour period associated with Black Friday, just under the prior record of 203,086.

…However, if the numbers even somewhat accurately capture the number of firearms sold, Americans purchased enough guns to arm every member of the approximately 182,000 active duty US Marines.

From Obama to Beto to Virginia – it’s a Merry-Go-Round of Democrats that all seemingly want to vie for being the Gun Seller of the Month…for us, a FEATURE and not a bug as long as they don’t get elected.

Keep it up, folks, keep it up. After all, there’s a new slew of anti-gun legislation already slotted by NH Democrats in this session’s hopper.  They don’t necessarily hate the idea of guns in and of themselves – they just hate the idea that YOU have them and not the Government having a monopoly on them.

Wouldn’t it be great for Freedom that Bloomberg will have wasted hundreds of millions of dollars by funding civilian disarmament groups (Everytown, Moms Demand Action) if SCOTUS decides that the permit license by NYC isn’t moot and then in the same vein as Heller, kill off most of the nation’s gun control legislation?
