Even the Lefties are wanting guns now – too bad they can’t them as quickly or easily as they thought

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- First, they came for hand sanitizer and bleach wipes. Then it was the toilet paper. Now, it’s guns and ammunition.

Americans are lining up at local gun shops taking stock of their safety concerns and stocking up on guns and ammunition. It’s showing that firearms continue to be a desired item and Americans are serious about providing for their safety – especially during times of uncertainty.

FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) told NSSF background check traffic saw a 300 percent increase on Monday, March 16, compared to the same day in 2019. Daily volumes are roughly double what they were a year ago.

    I wonder how many will walk in and ask how they get one quickly through that “gun show loophole”? Or are surprised that they can’t just order one online and have it delivered.

    • Wirecutter says:

      I was reading in another article that people in California are surprised that they can’t order a gun online from an out-of-state gunshop and have it shipped directly to their doors.

      • Pete says:

        I’ve had two Lefties ask about buying a gun here in Kaliforniastan. They were shocked -Shocked, I say- to learn there was a written test, and a 10 day wait.

        And the folks that actually bought (ordered and paid for) a gun last week can’t pick it up now ’cause gun stores are “non-essential.”

  2. WilliamGene says:

    Really, gotta laugh about this one. The time one discovers they need a firearm is not when the bad guys are knocking on their doors or kicking them in. Zero sympathy. Zero.

    I got one for sale to the Socialists. I picked it up at a Warner Brothers flea market. Former owner Elmer Fudd and it’s chambered for .45 caliber cork wadcutters.

    • joe says:

      I’m interested. How long is the string that’s attached to the cork?

      • oldawg says:

        Easy there son. Inquiring about high capacity string breaks opsec and COULD get you a visit from the black suit boys.

  4. Hadenoughalready says:

    And if they can’t buy them legally, they’ll take them…from YOU.
    Keep vigilant, folks. It’s looking like it could get rough, very quickly.

  5. WoodBurner says:

    I’d like to hear the kitchen conversations that are taking place in the restricted states.

    Karma a bitch you say?

  6. Tsgt Joe says:

    I didn’t know Florida has a 3 day waiting period. As a Michigan resident I cant buy a handgun in Florida, but I was feeling left out of the frenzy so I put my money down on another Ruger 10/22 last Friday. I cant pick it up till this coming Thursday.

    Stupid leftards voting for commies get stupid prizes, film at 11.

  8. Henk says:

    They’re buying guns but will continue voting for those who want to take their guns away.

  9. Bobo the Hobo says:

    One Los Angeles-area doctor buying a firearm told a reporter, “I want to buy a handgun, I think they call it a Glock, but I’m not sure. I have a house and a family, and they’ll need protection if things get worse. The fear is that civil services will break down.” I have read that elsewhere but this really sounds specious to me

    • Wirecutter says:

      Even if that guy could get a Glock (I think that’s what they call it), I don’t want to be anywhere in the neighborhood when he starts popping off rounds.

      • lil jack says:

        Perhaps the highly edumicated doctor will function test it by looking down the barrel and pulling the trigger.
        “Read the owners manual? Pffft!! I am highly educated, any hayseed yahoo can fire a gun. Besides, I saw a youtube video once, easy peasey.”
        “Here, hold my beer.”

        • crazyeighter says:

          Typical Doctor Snobbery. Robert Heinlein said something to the effect that expertise in one field does not carry over into another. The narrower the field of expertise, the more likely the person is liable to think it does.

  10. Sanders says:

    When the danger passes, a lot of cheap, never been shot, guns will come on the market…Actually, most of them will probably go back to the gun stores they came from, where they will be bought back for 1/2 what the numbskulls paid for them. Win-win for the gun stores. Hold on to that cash for the great American gun buyback!

  11. Hadenoughalready says:

    I can see that happening to “some” of the snowflakes but I believe that the majority will find the same sense of security we’ve been enjoying, and preaching, for decades and will decide to keep them…just in case.

  12. the other other Andrew says:

    So… a bunch of anti-gunners, spooked when their precious over-government says biglocalgov won’t be responding to calls or locking crooks up, suddenly decide they (the leftist sheeple) are shit-out-of-luck because their precious socialist government won’t protect them.


    Fuck them. Fuck them all. Welcome to why we on the right have been supporting the 2nd Amendment and most of us, except, strangly, most ‘pro-gun’ writers, have been saying for years.

    Suddenly, everyone, EVERYONE is living on the frontier, and there ain’t no Marshal around to protect their precious whatevers.

    Let’s see if these whiny pussbags remember all of this after this crisis is over.

    • Pat Umaporn says:

      Even the leftists want guns now. Too bad firearms can’t be obtained as quickly or easily as they thought. [Really have to laugh about this one. The time to discover a gun is needed is not when the bad guys are knocking on or kicking your doors in. So far, they’re lucky. No sympathy. Zero.]

  13. Nemo says:

    I’m thinking that the “helicopter money” that CONgress is getting ready to dispense will pay for a nice investment in a couple of practically new firearms once the crisis id over, IF it’s ever over and thew current business and travel restrictions are ever lifted.

  14. the other Rick says:

    The Magic Negro outdone by a virus.

  15. Butch says:

    A friend who lives in Santa Barbara, CA told me that two and three animal, uh, er, person gangs are coming up from LA area, casing the places they want to target, then hitting the target later, grabbing lots of treasure and then heading back to LA. Right now Montecito, CA is the favorite area.

    Anyone know if this is true? I haven’t read anything about any of this, but I’m blind and am unable to “read”.
