Black (Gun) Friday!

Something's going on.

Data derived from the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) shows that November 25, 2011, Black Friday, had the most background checks for firearm purchases in a single day (129,166) with a 32 percent increase over the previous NICS high (November 28, 2008). Federal law requires FBI background checks on all individuals purchasing firearms from federally licensed retailers.

These statistics represent the number of firearm background checks initiated through NICS. They do not represent the number of firearms sold. Based on varying state laws and purchase scenarios, a one-to-one correlation cannot be made between a firearm background check and a firearm sale.--Gateway quoting FR

The acceleration in gun sales began right around Obozo's inauguration and has apparently continued.

It would seem that the public is anticipating something, and it sure as Hell isn't an invasion of chipmunks.
