Background checks, a measurement often used to gauge gun sales, have jumped to historic highs over June.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released numbers on Wednesday that show about 3.9 million background checks were conducted over the past month. This is reportedly the largest increase since November 1998 when the background checks system was created to screen candidates who want to own a firearm.
This new record broke the previous monthly record, seen this past March, when 3.7 million checks were reportedly completed. These spikes come as the COVID-19 pandemic grips the U.S., and new cases begin to rise across the majority of states despite lockdown efforts having broadly been in place since March.
