2011 Smashes Sales Record for Guns
Dec 27, 2011
This was a banner year for guns -- 2011 is set to smash the record for gun sales.
The record for a single year was set just last year, when the FBI reported that 14,409,616 background checks were requested. In 2011 that figure will top 16 million. FBI spokesman Steve Fischer said just 1.3% of background checks result in denial of a weapon.
And that doesn’t even count the five I picked up at garage sales.
