Gun background checks hit another single-day record on black Friday.

The FBI says it fielded 203,086 background check requests for gun buyers on black Friday alone.

That's up from the two previous single-day highs both of which were recorded on black Fridays last year and the year before.

Gun checks are not a measure of how many guns were actually sold on black Friday.

That number is likely higher since approved buyers can purchase multiple firearms in one transaction.
