Gun Sales Up

Saw where gun sales are up, hard to find milk, toilet paper, rubbing alcohol, and other items. Went by the beer distributor, and the parking lot was full, cars parked along the road there. Times are getting tough, republicans have alot to lose, election time the democrats will be trying to scare the elderly not to go vote, because they will get sick. Stock market down, we can only be lucky that Trump had it in good shape to start with. If he does not get voted back in, our country may never recover, under democrat rule. In this time of people being told they can not go to work, the slackers will think this is great, they will be wanting hand outs, to get by. I imagine in the inner cities, many of the democratic supporters are planning riots. Early Christmas gifts, if they are not afraid they may get sick. Could even start breaking into homes outside the city, to steal food and other items, maybe the smart people realize this and this is why gun sales are up. Everything seems to be lining up for the democrats to destroy our country, with the help of a disease, from a communist country. Republicans be careful out there, its going to get worse before it gets better. Trump 2020

The elderly can get absentee ballots they do not have to show up to the polls...

Those that intend to take from others will start with areas already familiar to them... their own neighborhoods.
And with things shutdown, people already at home, I don't think it would spread outside of the cities all that quickly.... basically those intent on taking from others would know force would be required AND most likely met with return force.

If this stretches out, things will probably get sporty in the big cities, but would take a long time to start spreading outside city limits... If it does, it'll get shut down quickly, and violently.

Probably going to see a by mail or maybe even phone option fast tracked for the remaining primary elections for the entire population, not just the elderly. Maybe even extended to the general election in November.

That will go well, I'm certain....

Ordered some ammo just before this hit the fan & got email from supplier to expect 10-day delay due to heavy demand/problems filling orders.

I was at a gun store last Friday. I went to pick up a gun I had won at a raffle, I know, good timing. The place was crowded, the dealers were on hold for up to 20 mins to complete the background checks. One guy in there told a guy that he heard we were all going to be on mandatory lock down in our homes and there was nothing we could do about it.

It's not limited to ammo...shipping in general has been slowed down. Amazon has issued a statement warning customers to expect delays. When Amazon's shipping is effected, you know all shipping will be effected.

On the bright side ( if there is one ) once this all settles down, there will be some great deals on firearms and ammo, plus TP and sanitizer one the idiots get a good look at their 401ks.

Hhhmmmm, a gun is a good thing to have? Well imagine that. If you're not careful you learn something every day.
