Gun sales fell in May, according to data released by the federal government on Monday. 

While there is no exact data on firearms purchases in the U.S., the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System is used as a barometer for gun sales. Adjusted for permit checks, such as concealed-carry applications, May checks were down 8.5 percent from the previous year, totaling 904,834.
