Record Year for Gun Background Checks
According to the FBI 2015 was a record year for gun background checks. More than 23-million were conducted. FBI background checks are conducted for all gun sales that go through a federally licensed dealer. December was the biggest month ever, with more than 3-million checks. It was the first month to surpass 3-million since the FBI started tracking background checks in 1998. It’s also the month that two terrorists shot and killed 14 people in San Bernardino. President Obama plans to take executive action in the next few days to expand background checks.
