Across the United States, gun sales increased during Black Friday, one of the busiest business days of the year. Many gun sellers were able to surpass last year’s numbers, often with high profit margins. Even the FBI took wind of the increase due to a record number of background check requests made nationwide. They calculated around 203,000 background checks were requested for gun sales last Friday alone. Gun sellers took advantage of the weekend to offer discounts and promotions, which they hoped would attract buyers during a slow year after Trump’s election.
