Over 200,000 Background Checks for Black Friday


Background checks across the nation fell under 1,000 checks short of breaking the all-time Black Friday record. This year’s number came to 202,465, with the record still intact at 203,086 for 2017.

Locally, the gun shops willing to speak with KREX, say the wait on background checks stayed relatively low. They gave thanks to CBI for being on top of things, and prepared for the holiday influx. Statewide, Colorado saw 4,460 background checks. This also comes in as the second highest all-time for The Centennial State.
