Driven by terror threats and a potential Hillary Clinton administration, sales of guns in America soared to record levels in 2016, according to the FBI.

Just released FBI background check numbers, which roughly equate gun sales, totaled some 27,538,673, 4 million more than in 2015 and nearly double the number in President Obama‘s first year.

The numbers do not include many guns sold to or given to friends and family.

  1. Wyoming – 6.33 per 100,000
  2. South Dakota – 5.74 per 100,000
  3. Montana – 5.37 per 100,000
  4. Alaska -4.89 per 100,000
  5. Iowa – 4.47 per 100,000
