According to the FBI figures, this means June 2016 saw more background checks than any June since background checks began in 1998. Breitbart News previously reported that the record-breaking streak began in May 2015, only to have May 2016 exceed the number of background checks performed a year earlier.

On June 27, Breitbart News used FBI figures to show that the number of background checks conducted during the Obama presidency is so high that it averages out to nearly 52,000 a day. That means, an average of 52,000 citizens a day go to a retail store to buy a gun, two guns, or even more.
