America has gone gun crazy like never before.
The FBI announced on Monday that 2020 recorded the most ever gun background checks, 39,615,315. And, said the agency, December also broke the record high set just in June. Last month, there were 3,937,066 checks in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
Firearms industry officials told Secrets that sales hit record numbers because of concerns about Black Lives Matter protests, the controversial 2020 presidential election, and Joe Biden’s promise of gun control, gun registration, and the banning of the most popular gun in America, the AR-15.
Also, they said that many used their stimulus checks to buy guns and take lessons.
