People bought so many guns on Black Friday that they practically crashed the National Instant Check System (NICS) which Federal Firearms License (FFL-Gun dealers) use to conduct instant background checks on people buying firearms.
We are experiencing record firearms and ammunition sales in this country. It is estimated that about 90million Americans own guns, but that is only those who respond to government surveys, so there are probably more (maybe another ~10million) who do but don’t want to be recorded as owning any. The current estimate is that these Americans own around 300million guns, but I’d increase that number to 350million for the same reason as above. Suffice to say that Americans sense something and are arming themselves to the teeth in response.
Praise God and pass the ammunition.
