The FBI was flooded Friday with more than 200,000 background check requests for gun purchases, setting a new single day record, the bureau reported Saturday.
In all, the FBI fielded 203,086 requests on Black Friday, up from the previous single-day highs of 185,713 last year and 185,345 in 2015. The two previous records also were recorded on Black Friday.

I got 5 on Black Friday.
Good to see people stocking up, though. Would come in handy during a myriad of disasters and emergencies.
Also ensures no guns will/could ever be confiscated by an invading army or tyrannical government. Too many.
