LINK US sales of guns and ammunition soar amid coronavirus panic buying | Coronavirus outbreak | The Guardian

I just don't know how much more American I can take. 😔😔😔 This is ridiculous. These people watch entirely too much Netflix. This isn't a zombie apocalypse FFS.

Collective paranoia, but look on the bright side, with the schools closed there will be no school shootings.

Kind of reminds me of some of the Charlton Heston apocalyptic movies where he's holed up with his hoard of weapons facing an angry mob. Perhaps he played the part so many times he actually believed this crap and became the president of the NRA. Dementia finally brought him down.

I agree with you totally but here is a thought that come to me. With the current fear and lack of control, store merchandise hording, etc. we could be close to a panic soon. If this virus caused people to get this much out of control they might soon be breaking into your house to raid goods you have. This would be a disaster that might end up with me using a heavy golf driving iron on someone at my place if it came to this. Chances are they would be dead without any gun involvement.

On the other hand, I do have guns. I have a pistol in the house and I think the bullets are in my shed. I also have a 22 rifle that I got from my stepdad as he went into the nursing home, but no bullets. I used to be a crack shot but my Gunsmoke days are over.

People of a mindset to commit property crimes will commit property crimes. People trying to survive will loot places that offer the greatest chances of finding tools/items to aid in survival.

Going blindly into occupied dwellings isn't really a thing outside of the minuscule population that does that without a reason other than they're thieves.

Hurricane Katrina. Looting was rampant. People who that weren't a total loss (property wise) didn't see a spike in crimes against them. It's human nature to avoid being caught. Going blindly into the unknown, like someone's home, isn't happening unless it's a zombie apocalypse you're talking about.

I'm not anti-gun. I'm anti-idiot. Sadly in America, those two are often synonymous as one.

**Your chance of being a home invasion victim in America**

00168%. Lifetime chances of about 0.32%. Odds are about 1 in 6000, approximately twice as likely as getting struck by lightning in your lifetime. So proportionally speaking you should prepare for a home invasion twice as much as you prepare for being hit by lightning.

@SeaGreenEyez As always, you have common sense on your side.🤗
