    According to the FBI spokesman Stephen Fischer, Black Friday shattered the single-day record for gun sales – with 185,713 background checks processed in a 24 hour period. Fischer told Business Insider that nearly 400 more transactions were processed on Black Friday than in 2015.

    The number breaks down to slightly more than two background checks per second, or enough firearms to arm each of the 182,000 active duty members of the United States Marine Corps. Semper Fi!

    And the interesting part of that is Ga and a I believe a couple other states do not require the background check if you have a GWCL or similar in the other states.

    So the 3500 or so sold in Ga gets an army division as cooks and bottle washers for the corps?
