Monday, March 30, 2020

The Trump administration has determined that the firearms industry -- from manufacturing to retail sales and shooting ranges -- is a "critical" service that should continue to operate amid the coronavirus crisis.

Arming yourself is now critically important.

That surely inspires confidence in an orderly transition to an America with 1-2% less Americans.

Maybe some people here whose households don't permit guns will finally see how critical they are.

Or is Trump merely anticipating the smooth and orderly transfer of power after the November elections?

Tim Robbins: Let me explain to you how this works: you see, the corporations finance Team America, and then Team America goes out... and the corporations sit there in their... in their corporation buildings, and... and, and see, they're all corporation-y... and they make money.

I went through and cleaned/oiled all my firearms. I reload cartridges and am well stocked. My hope is that my reloading "hobby" remains just that...a hobby.

What's the best weapon for bringing Grandpa to the ER and making sure he gets the medical attention he deserves?

In some places you need to be able to buy a gun and ammo same as you need to buy a hammer and nails.

In other areas its a novelty purchase like fast food.

Yup, everything from rabbits and grouse to elk.

I sorta gave up hunting once I could afford meat from the grocery store. Beef tastes better than game, as we have been selectively breading beef for thousands of years. Same for pork vs wild boar, or chicken vs grouse.

Yes, when I was growing-up, we only ate wild game when it was in season, but it did help add to our larder. However, there were kids in my school who if it weren't for what they and/or their fathers shot, whether it was in or out of season, they would have had almost no fresh meat in their diets. Some families lived pretty close to the land, as it were. Like I said, we were lucky, my father had a full time job and while we ate what we shot, we didn't need to depend on it to get enough to eat.

It's not a Second Amendment issue.

That said, I agree that it is an essential service.

Just ironic that this is considered an essential service but certain medical procedures like abortion are not.

Leftists say, "call the police" if you're afraid for your safety. They don't trust you to use a firearm to secure your own safety, but they (apparently) trust that police will do so. This is odd, since leftists otherwise generally distrust law enforcement and its use of firearms in almost every other circumstance. However, it's consistent with the secular leftist attitude that everything, including manna from heaven, is derived from the state.
