Firearm Retailers Cash in On Black Friday

Dr. A.W.R. Hawkins reports that Black Friday this year is no different than it has been since 2008:
In 2012, the number of Black Friday background checks rose to 154,873. Remember that because numerous guns can be purchased with each background check, these figures don't even begin to indicate how many firearms may actually have been sold. 
This information is not lost on retailers like Cabela's, Bass Pro Shops, and Wal-Mart. Cabela's literally gave away shotguns to early bird customers in some cities on Black Friday--those receiving the guns went through a background check--and Huffington Post reported that Bass Pro Shops was running hot deals on Bushmaster AR-15 rifles. 
Wal-Mart ran a "Manager's Special Sale" that translated into "20 percent off select rifles and shotguns."
