According to the FBI, background checks for gun sales reached a record high on Black Friday, increasing by 5 percent from last year.
The agency processed over 185,000 background checks on Friday, equal to about two checks per second. (Video via WBMA)
But this number doesn't account for all possible gun sales, since the system doesn't check people who buy firearms through unlicensed dealers like gun shows. (Video via CNN)
