Every gun-grabber’s dream: Use the Wuhan virus as an excuse to suspend your Second Amendment rights. See the following examples:
Los Angeles: “LA County Sheriff tells me he is beginning to close county gun stores immediately. Deputies are currently going to the stores one by one to order them shut down. Sheriff to utilize scofflaw violations for any gun store still open after he deemed them nonessential.
The Sheriff told me he is a gun owner himself, supports 2nd amendment, but believes too many first time buyers are panicking and bringing guns into homes where people are locked down, which he believes is recipe for disaster with potential accidental shootings.”
(The stores in Burbank are going to remain open because they facilitate security needs. They were ordered to close on Saturday, but the city revised it today.)
Pennsylvania: “Big news: PA Governor Tom Wolf has issued new guidelines that will allow gun stores to remain open across the state, as long as they follow specific social distancing mandates.
The governor’s order is very close to the ideas offered up by three state Supreme Court justices in their dissenting opinion in a suit challenging the governor’s original declaration about “essential” businesses.
Stores will be allowed to operate by appointment only, with undefined “limited” hours, so it’s not perfect. It’s better, and I hope it can be continued to be improved to ensure Pennsylvanians access to their rights.”
North Carolina: “Wake County Sheriff’s Office just suspended ALL pistol permit applications due to “unprecedented demand for weapons.” They will not reopen applications in Wake county until APRIL 30th. They say they’ve seen a 250% increase in demand.”
New Jersey: “New Jersey governor Phil Murphy has ordered all gun stores in the state to remain closed during the declared state of emergency over the coronavirus.”
Apparently gun-grabbers believe gun stores are “non essential” businesses and that an “increase in demand” means they can suspend your rights. Figures.
And this is WHY we need the Second Amendment to protect ourselves (posted at 9:19 last night): “Police in Yakima, Washington now say they DO NOT KNOW how many inmates have escaped local jail, witnesses report at least 20.”
All but eight are “unaccounted for.”
Watch the video of the inmates (obviously not yet fully processed as they are still in civilian clothing?) escaping here.
