Surprise! Big Black Friday Seller will Piss off Liberals!

While many people were out on Black Friday, snagging up the best deals on televisions, Apple watches, and clothes,  there was another item flying off the shelves at alarming rates.

Of course it was only alarming to liberals! Can you guess what that item was? If you guessed firearms, then you’re correct!

According to the FBI, more than 203,000 requests flooded in for background checks regarding gun purchases on Black Friday.

I can only imagine how long it took to process that tsunami of requests!

MSN reports: 

Indeed, Black Friday is becoming a popular day to buy guns, given the FBI’s previous record-setting days for background checks on firearms purchases were set on Black Friday in 2016 and 2015.

The boost in gun sales comes as firearms makers slash prices because of an inventory glut built up after the industry increased production amid fears the Obama administration would tighten gun control laws.

At the same time, the retail gun market is changing. Outdoor-gear and firearms retailers Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s are merging, while rival Gander Mountain is liquidating. Dick’s Sporting Goods, meanwhile, has cited soft sales in its hunting business.

Current promotions on firearms include rebates and discounts on pistols and shotguns at Cabela’s, as well as deals on guns at Walmart and other retailers.

About a week ago, Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System to be reviewed. The NICBSC is the database used by the FBI to screen gun buyers.

The background system has been receiving criticism lately after the gunman in Texas murdered two dozen people in church. The reason the program is taking so much heat for it is because the U.S. Air Force did not report the criminal history of the gunman, therefore allowing him to buy weapons.

The review will examine whether other government agencies are failing to report information to the database. Sessions also wants a report of how many times the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have investigated and prosecuted people for laying on their gun-purchase applications.
