May 2018 became the third consecutive month of record background checks and the biggest May in history, as far as background checks are concerned.

FBI numbers show 2,002,992 background checks were conducted in May 2018. The previous May record was 1,942,677 background checks conducted during that month in 2017.

This follows an April in which 2,223,213 background checks conducted, setting the record for the highest number of checks in any April in history. And that followed a March which set the record for the highest number of background checks conducted during any March in history.
Hmmm....I must do my part to make June 2018 record breaking as well!

Doesn't count the number with LTC that don't get a background check. So number is even more.

One is comparing may 2017 to may 2018. The other is comparing may 2018 to April 2018

Yep, That's how statistics work. You make the comparison that furthers your cause.
