LA County Sheriff closes gun stores.

Trying to head off a run on guns. I think those horses are long out of the barn.

3. Interesting take

 

It seems you dont mind rights being taken away from others as long as it doesnt affect you.

Would you say the same thing if they took away your right against unreasonable search and seizure?

Absolutely unconstitutional and they should be sued by every single citizen that is affected.

5. Your temporary inconvenience, like the requirement we all give up our rights to save the larger

population against a devastating microbe that your gun will do nothing to resolve is no, not my concern. No one is making you give up your right to blast away at your will. Only that you wait before stockpiling more to intimidate your neighbor and strangers. So sorry. NOT! Your impatience and selfishness in this matter is not a constitutional right. I'm sure whoever is taking over Rush Limbaugh's radio show right now will be glad to hear your grievance.

13. YOU aren't being denied squat. You, however want to deny others the right to effective

pandemic control and put their lives at risk. Apparently you've never read beyond the second amendment and clearly never read the declaration of independence upon whose foundation the constitution was written, but "LIFE" is the first inalienable rights. I know that doesn't mean much to you. Only the ability to stockpile weapons. It is nothing more than a temporary inconvenience, but DEATH IS PERMANENT.

It is hard not to be disgusted by such selfish attitudes.

14. No. your temporary inconvenience in not being able to stockpile weapons.

does not reflect a denial of an inalienable right. LIFE IS such an inalienable right and that means your temporary inconvenience takes a backseat to pandemic control.

Your whining and gnashing of teeth notwithstanding.

Of course, everyone knows that guns are very effective against all viruses.

9. Better late then never - if your goal is simply to deny sales and not C-19 safety.


(CNN)"Gun, ammo sales soar in Kentucky amid novel coronavirus outbreak"

"Valley gun sales soaring amid coronavirus pandemic"
"Gun sales soaring due to coronavirus fears, stores placing limits on supplies"
"'It's busier than Black Friday:' Gun sales boom in San Diego amid fears over coronavirus"

"According to Ammo.com, an online retailer of ammunition, there have been massive increases in its ammo sales over the past month (as compared with the month prior, when coronavirus was still a bit of a theoretical threat to most Americans). In Colorado, it says, its ammunition sales were up more than 1,000%. That number was as high as 945% in Arizona and 897% in Ohio.

"While people have stockpiled toilet paper, hand sanitizer, and pantry essentials, they've also purchased ammunition at an unprecedented rate," reads the site.

Guarantee IF things ever get back to normal, people missing out now won't be caught without again.

10. Gun stores in adjacent counties applaud this.

They might even purchase stock from the L.A. county guns stores.

There is money to be made.
