Americans Bought Enough Guns on Black Friday to Arm the Marine Corps



Black Friday, a day of commercial consumerism. The lines are wrapped around the buildings waiting for the deals of a lifetime. While you might think most consumers are out there waiting for the latest new toy or the biggest TV, many buyers on Black Friday are buying something totally different.

Black Friday is apparently the day to buy guns. Lots of guns!

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!

The ending total number of firearms purchased on Black Friday is likely to be more than 200,000.

And that’s fucking awesome.
