The Great American Gun Sell-Out Some Good News! Good News! By John Steele
These are exciting times for post-apocalyptic crazy survivalist, gun fanatics like me. I have not seen anything about gun sales in Australia, but in the US, oh boy, happy times indeed, as more guns are going out the door than toilet paper. That will ensure that America can enjoy its freedoms, liberty and individualism, even in the post-apocalyptic Covid 19 wastelands, if that is how it goes. I am personally not bothered any way, living in the apocalypse now myself.
“We’ve been in contact with a number of retailers around the country today and over the weekend and they report that the Great Coronavirus Gun Run is anything but fake news. Nine millimeter and .22 LR ammunition is evaporating at a rapid pace. A large Washington state retailer sold $120,000 of ammo in the first three hours they were open on Saturday. A northern Illinois retailer that’s been in business since the mid 1950’s said they did twice the amount of business they’d ever done before in a single day, even during the post-Sandy Hook buying binge. They’re completely sold out of personal defense ammunition and range loads are getting awfully scarce. They’re all out of AR pattern rifles and the remaining handgun inventory is going fast. According a central Florida retailer we talked to, gun buyers were waiting as long as four hours for an all clear on their NICS background checks Saturday. They’re seeing about 50% of their Gun Run sales volume going to new buyers with most of the rest being bought by CCW holders who are able to bypass the state’s 3-day waiting period (5 days in many of south Florida’s blue-er counties).”
The above article has photos of people lining up outside of gun shops; all happy to do so. Most of these people are first time buyers, virgin gun owners. That gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling, camped out here like Bull-Hansen does, although I don’t move back to the city after filming. In fact, there is no film at all, only my stream of consciousness articles, then fade to black.
