Colorado gun sale background checks at record high

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - Gun sale background checks in Colorado are at a record high.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation says it has already performed more than 350,000 checks through last month, which is more than all of last year.

According to KKCO-TV, retailers and state officials attribute the record sales to several things, including concerns over gun sale crackdowns after several school shootings and new laws in Colorado requiring background checks for private purchases.
