      It is necessary to be able to buy firearms to protect yourself and your home against criminals who may take advantage of the covid-19 crisis to attack you, rape you, steal your stuff, etc. You have a constitutional right to arm yourself if you think you may be in danger, and there are indications that certain types of crime are on the rise during the virus crisis. The problem, of course, is that the gun humpers will run out and buy another assault weapon, which will then be stolen and used to shoot up a school once the schools open again. But that’s a problem related to what they sell, not when they’re allowed to sell it. The government cannot prevent the Reverend Doctor Whacko from preaching that Jesus will protect you from the virus. The government cannot prevent your local newspaper from printing Rand Paul op-eds. About all the government can do is restrict your ability to get close to others. This means they can set limits on how many people are allowed in to stroke and pet the AR-15s, just as if the gun shop were a grocery store. But the Constitution says it’s essential, so we have to accept that. The link goes to the NRA opinion piece that warns government is trying to use the virus as an excuse to confiscate your guns, so take it with the appropriate skepticism.

        to “harvest them”, to stop them from overrunning the place?

      Crooks could go out and buy guns/more ammo in order to come rob me of my stuff.

      No, the “Gun Humpers” are not right.  I have no paranoid inclinations to better ‘guard’ my stash of toilet paper.

      I’d expect a rise in property crime, as that’s what rose during the last recession-cum-depression.  In my neighborhood, more car burgles and a lot more drug sales/dealers/druggies in evidence.  Dealers next door, dealers across the street.  So glad those days are gone, would hate to go back to that as it was literally scary at night & occasionally during the day.  It was the one time in my life I wished I had a gun.

      The only place I am hearing about banning/confiscating guns is from the gun humpers themselves. Anyone with a better grip on reality, are more worried about the cornoavirus, their jobs, debt and it effects on most everything.
