Despite passing some of the strongest gun control restrictions in the nation, Colorado is reporting strong gun sales this Black Friday. According to Ryan Parker of the Denver Post, 3,382 criminal background checks for firearm sales were processed by the end of the day.

“Although the volume was high,” Parker wrote, “fewer applications were processed Friday than on Black Friday of 2012, when more than 4,000 applications were processed — in part due to the massive backlog from weeks of soaring gun sales.”

Let the pearl clutching begin.
