Obama speaking at G20 Nov2015A gun-rights advocate says President Obama continues to be the most popular "gun salesman" in the United States. 

Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America was responding to a record-breaking number of gun sales during the annual "Black Friday" shopping day that follows Thanksgiving Day. 

Pratt, Larry (GOA)The FBI announced that it processed 185,345 background checks on firearm purchases, five percent higher than on Black Friday in 2014.

Pratt says Obama deserves "credit" for those sales, especially when he claimed in Paris this week that mass shootings happen only in the United States.

"When we hear our president, in Paris, saying that sort of thing doesn't happen in other countries," says Pratt. "And he said it from Paris, where he had to be within a mile or two from where a horrible mass murder had just occurred."
