The FBI checks who buys a gun. In the last two years, the FBI checks 78 million of gun purchases in the US. The number is high. They do not know who buys a gun and why.

They will be able to know soon. The biggest credit card companies will make a category for guns and bullets. The category will show If someone buys a gun. In the past, guns and bullets belong to the same category as many purchases.

Difficult words: purchase (when someone buys something), category (a group of similar things), bullet (a small metal object inside a gun).
