New Record:4,200 Coloradans tried to buy guns the day after Newtown, Connecticut school shooting

DENVER - Colorado set a single-day record for gun background check requests the day after the Connecticut mass shootings.

Colorado Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Susan Medina said there were more than 4,200 requests to buy guns in Colorado on Saturday. Those gun-purchase requests surpassed the previous record -- 4,028 background checks processed on Black Friday this year.

The latest surge in gun-purchase applications came after a gunman on Friday killed 20 children and six staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
