    reported that December 23rd, 102,222 guns were sold, what does this mean and why is that a news headline?

    Wisconsin had a big flurry of handgun sales after the enactment of the concealed carry legislation.

    Is your report for the whole US, or what?

    The report is written by CNN as reported by background checks reported.

    "Two days before Christmas, NICS ran 102,222 background checks, which was the second-busiest day in history. The one-day record was set this year on Black Friday, the big shopping day following Thanksgiving, with 129,166 searches. By comparison, the previous one-day high was set November 28, 2008, when gun dealers made slightly less than 98,000 requests for background searches."

    CNN....chicken noodle network. Now there's real journalism. They couldn't spot a news story if it hit them in the butt.

    You ever think why a lot of us are buying them. Our country is in a

    downward spiral. The idiot in the White House is no help. Our elected people

    (Congress) are out to better themselves at the expense of all of us. We need to

    clean house and get back to what this Country stands for. We don't enforce our

    immigration laws. Our language is English, by some of the labels on stuff I kind

    of wonder. Learn English and use it ,be a U.S. citizen you don't have to give up

    own language but don't expect us to learn yours. If you don't like it go back to

    where everything was wonderful. Why the hell did you leave!!! nuff said Ken U
