tennessee gun sales

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — It was likely a record weekend for gun sales in Tennessee.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Kristin Helm said in an email that the agency performed 9,772 background checks over Friday, Saturday and Sunday. That's 500 more than the second biggest weekend on record — Black Friday and the two days that followed in November.

Background checks do not indicate how many guns were actually sold because buyers can purchase more than one gun.
