FBI Gun Background Checks Reach 3 Million in April

During the month of April, the FBI ran up to 2.9 million gun background checks. The number is lower in comparison to the 3.7 million gun background checks in March, but the April numbers correspond to a greater number of gun sales. FBI disclosed figures on the number of gun background checks it ran during April.

Five states topped gun background check numbers – Kentucky, California, Illinois, Florida, and Texas. Gun sales have increased since the coronavirus pandemic has taken root. This increase naturally corresponds with the uptick in background checks the agency is covering.

Gun Sellers Listed as ‘Critical’ by Federal Agency

Gun sellers continue to open without any problem while other businesses remain shut on account of being ‘non-essential’. This is because the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (a federal agency) listed gun sellers as ‘critical’ during the coronavirus pandemic.

The list made by the federal agency in question is ‘advisory’ and not exclusionary in nature according to the agency itself.

The issue took a political turn when the Los Angeles sheriff closed gun stores. This decision came after California governor Gavin Newsome gave county governments the power to decide on opening gun stores. A number of gun rights groups sued the LA country for their decision to shut down gun stores. They claimed the country was hindering the ability of people to protect themselves.
