Gun stores are among the retailers expecting more sales than usual this Black Friday.
A national trade group that represents the gun and ammunition industry says Black Friday could set a record for the number of background checks performed. Those are required by the FBI for gun purchases.
On the day after Thanksgiving last year, the number of background checks set an all-time high.
Mike Bazinet is a spokesman with the National Shooting Sports Foundation. He says there are several reasons why gun stores will be busy.
