FBI processing record number background checks for guns

A surge in Black Friday gun sales has the FBI very busy processing a record number of requests for background checks.

More than 203,000 background checks were requested for gun purchases on Friday.

It's the biggest single day record, which beat last year's record by 15,000.

Actual gun sales were likely higher because buyers may have bought more than one gun.
