A CNN article noted that “Black Friday” 2014 set a new record high for NICS background checks, recording more than 175,000 calls. This falls just short of the all-time record of 177,000 on December 21, 2012.Gun sales boom on Black Friday - CNN.com << LINK
Side note - MO CCW renewal process streamlined.
Yesterday I was in and out in 30 minutes. The card used to be an endorsement on a drivers license or state ID card. The sheriff now handles the whole process and the photo step is gone as well. Further - The renewal is now on a 5 year cycle rather than the 3 years and by not having to work with the DMV the cost has gone down.
Works for me.
