Total applications on Black Friday numbered 175,000, which sounds like a lot, but the FBI already processed 18,658,838 background checks so far this year. Oh, and that doesn't include guns sold at gun shows which, because they're on folding tables in a convention center, are technically collectibles. You know, like Beanie Babies or Pokémon cards.

know they can buy meat in stores now?

I'm not trying to pick on gun enthusiasts and the bleak, paranoid world in which they live, but seriously, 175,000 guns in one day? I know they like to say that guns don't kill people, but really, they kind of do, so how about a gift card? Or maybe a nice scarf? Ok, a scarf killed Isadora Duncan, but the score is like scarfs: 1, guns: 79,932,123.*

*Yes, I made that number up, but for real, it's a lot.
