    General Notes: These statistics represent the number of firearm background checks initiated through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). They do not represent the number of firearms sold. Based on varying state laws and purchase scenarios, a one-to-one correlation cannot be made between a firearm background check and a firearm sale.
