The FBI conducted just under 2.8 million background checks in December for those wishing to purchase firearms, which helped make 2012 a record year for gun sales.

For the year, the FBI conducted 19.6 million background checks, which was a nearly 20% increase over 2011.

The 2.8 million checks in December were more than 1 million more than December of 2011, reports MarketWatch.
