Guns a big item on "Black Friday"
The FBI reports 129,166 background checks that day, an all-time record, and 32% above that day last year. The tide has turned.
I wonder how many people committed a "crime" by checking yes for 11a on their 4473.

I'm wondering how many were purchased by permit holders and a NICS call wasn't required.

KBIEL, did you mean 12a on the form?

No, I'm fairly certain that I meant 11a: http://www.atf.gov/forms/download/atf-f-4473-1.pdf
I was just snarking on how Black Friday is supposedly when people are buying X-mas presents and buying a fire arm as a present would seem to be a no-no given the wording of the warning on 11a. On further inspection though, I see that they clarify that on page 4 of 6. Gotta love regulations, bureaucracy, and paper work.

KBIEL, You are correct. Memory should always be checked. I knew that's what you were alluding to also.
What says caring more than giving a tool for self preservation.
