Guns a Hot Item for Holiday Shoppers

THE DELTA (Ben Caxton) — Guns are expected to be a hot item during the holiday shopping season. The FBI doesn’t track gun sales, but the National Instant Criminal Background check is a good way to gauge demand. There has been a surge in pre-sale background checks with nearly 23 million so far this year and for the first time since 1998, when the FBI first began tracking background checks, the number of applications has not dropped below 2 million per month. Firearm sales increased in August and September following mass shootings August and September like the Walmart shootings in El Paso and Southaven. If Black Friday Sales are as good as expected, they could break the record set in 2016 of 27.5 million background checks in a single year.
