Vermont firearm sales exceed 50,000 for first time – Vermont Daily

With a month left to go, gun sales in Vermont appear to have exceeded 50,000 for the first time since the federal government began conducting firearms background checks in 1998.

Through November, the federal government conducted 52,855 background checks for Vermont firearms purchases, according to the FBI National Criminal Instant Background Check (NCIS) system. These statistics represent the number of firearm background checks initiated through the NICS. They do not precisely represent the number of firearms sold. A one-to-one correlation cannot be made between a firearm background check and a firearm sale because some legal gun sales do not require a background check.
