Lots of Guns

It wasn't a record, but Americans bought a lot of guns on Black Friday.
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.
Not bad.  I was traveling last Friday and didn't get a chance to look at any guns  With the proliferation of internet sales (all perfectly legal through an FFL) I wonder what the total will be for gun trade.  I see emails from some of my favorite merchants that they are still giving cyber deals.

It's enough to give a liberal the willies.

Hat tip to Termite.

I prefer to buy a firearm on National Firearms Appreciation Day, December 14th, which just so happens to also be the anniversary of Sandy Hook. Strange coincidence, huh?

Here in Pennsylvania, we have a State check that does not ping NICS unless its a first time buyer.

So that's a bunch of under reporting.

Happy happy happy!

Here in Texas if you have a License to Carry Handgun any gun you buy gets to skip the NICS check. We are legion.
