The past couple of months have seen a significant increase in background checks for firearm purchases as a large number of first-time gun buyers decided to exercise their Second Amendment rights just in case things get out of control because of the Wuhan virus pandemic.
I’ve got a hunch that there may be a sizable number of additional first-time buyers going to gun stores over the next few weeks with a new-found understanding of why those stores are essential businesses—and that they may develop a changed attitude about their states’ waiting periods for gun purchases.
I have never seen shelves so bare in so many gun stores. And some types of ammo are more scarce than a politician with a soul.
I was in 3 gun stores today just trying to find some 380 ammo and they were all packed! (Illinois)
