Maybe they won’t need guns as much when we have a white president.

t appears more guns were sold in the United States during just the first 11 months of 2016 than in any previous year.


More than 24.7 million criminal background checks for gun transactions were processed between the start of this year and the end of November, according to data from the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS.

By comparison, about 23.1 million such checks were processed in all of 2015, which was the highest total ever for a single year dating back to the late 1990s, when the NICS began.
