USA Today, of all media outlets, is reporting on gun sales this Black Friday:
Gun dealers flooded theÂ FBIÂ with background check requests for prospective buyers last Friday, smashing the single-day, all-time high by 32%, according to bureau records.
Deputy Assistant FBI Director Jerry Pender said the checks, required by federal law, surged to 129,166 during the day, far surpassing the previous high of 97,848 on Black Friday of 2008.
They quote Brady acting President Dennis Henigan, who is skeptical of the numbers. You know Dennis, if you really don’t like being reminded just how much you’re losing, we could always repeal the Brady Act. That way you can enjoy some bliss in ignorance, since NICS won’t be around anymore to report on just how well gun sales are doing. What do you say?

They quote Henigan saying “I think there may be no real signifcance at all.” Is he referring to the organization he is acting president of?
“”I think there may be no real signifcance (sic) at all,” Henigan said. “It’s possible that gun companies are just catching on to creating a Black Friday frenzy for themselves.””
So, what? Black Friday promotions or not, NICS checks reflect the numbers of people buying guns. Read’em and weep Dennis
