Gun registration in America hits all-time high

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The number of Americans applying for gun permits has hit an all time high.

The FBI says it conducted 2.8 million background checks in the month of December--the highest number since the agency began keeping records in 1998.

Industry analysts believe many people are buying guns simply because many states like Illinois are threatening to crackdown on gun ownership.

There are now more than 300 million guns in the United States.
