    Guns may be in high demand for Floridians' holiday gifts
    FDLE estimates it will conduct 1 million background checks on gun purchases

    Published On: Dec 16 2013 06:53:46 PM EST

    The Florida Department of Law Enforcement says it is on target to conduct nearly 1 million background checks this year on private firearm purchases. The projection comes as the department is reporting a record number of reviews conducted over the Thanksgiving weekend that typically kicks off the year-end holiday shopping season.

    "We have definitely seen an increase in the number of background checks over the past several years," FDLE spokeswoman Samantha Andrews said Monday. "You can see November and December are relatively larger" for sales.

    Andrews declined to speculate on the reason for the increase and said the checks are only conducted on the individuals making purchases.
