(KLTV) - More guns were sold last month than any other April on record according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation.

The FBI says it conducted more than 3.5 million gun-related background checks last month. That marks a 20 percent increase over the same period last year. Fears about looming gun control legislation and rising crime rates are thought to be fueling the spike in gun sales.
