FBI checked almost 20 million potential US arms buyers
This year, employees of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the United States checked a record number of people who wanted to buy weapons or get permission for them. Reports about it vox.com.
For 11 months of this year, the bureau reported on 19,7 million checks.
The largest number of inspections fell on Black Friday. On November 27 this year, the bureau staff carried out more than 185 thousand inspections. This is 5% more than in 2014.
FBI officials arrange checks, citing the so-called Brady Act, signed by Bill Clinton in 1993. The law allows bureau employees to verify data on those who buy weapons. Thus, the FBI can find out whether a potential buyer of a weapon has a criminal record.
