We know certain things impact ammo sales, mostly political events or economic instability when people feel their rights may end up infringed, but this is our first experience with a virus leading to such a boost in sales. But it makes sense. A lot of our customers like to be prepared. And for many of them, it’s not just facemasks and TheraFlu. It’s knowing that no matter what happens, they can keep themselves and their families safe.”

Common rifle cartridges such 7.62×39 and .223 Remington- the two most common rifle cartridges, for AR and AK-style rifles respectively- were the second and third most increased ammunition variant sold by Ammo.com. .223 sales increased by 194%, and 7.62×39 by 114%.

People from states such as North Carolina, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Texas fueled the greatest increase in demand for ammunition.

The Chinese government has doubled down on its tendency towards authoritarianism in light of the virus’ all-encompassing impact on the city of Wuhan. Citizens monitoring Chinese law enforcement have been forcibly abducted and quarantined by the government even in cases where it appears doubtful that they even have the disease.

It’s not exactly obvious what American gun owners are expecting as a result of the coronavirus, but many feel inclined to stock up on vital supplies essential to self-defense.

Party Turns Deadly in Mexico as 11 People are Gunned Down

Meanwhile, America’s border policies remain weak.

This past weekend, gunmen riding in a truck in the Mexican state of Jalisco shot up a party, which resulted in the deaths of 11 people, according to Mexican authorities.

In a statement, prosecutors revealed that police discovered the bodies of 10 men, filled with bullets, on the sidewalk right in front of a home in Tonald, a municipality in the Guadalajara metropolitan area. 

Inside of the home, the body of a boy was found, while another boy and a woman received treatment at a local hospital. 

For those unaware, Jalisco is one of the most economically prominent states in Mexico. In addition, it’s one of the main hubs of drug cartel violence given how it’s the de facto headquarters of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG).

Although Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador was elected in 2018 on a platform to clamp down on violence. However, Mexico is politically on the ropes, as murders go through the roof and cartels continue cutting out de facto statelets within Mexico.

At the end of 2020, one of the most notable casualties was former Jalisco Governor Aristoteles Sandoval. He was killed in a restaurant town in the tourist hub of Puerto Vallarta.

According to the Times of Oman, “Almost 100 murders are registered every day across the country of 126 million people, while more than 82,000 people have disappeared since the so-called war on drugs began in Mexico in 2006.”

Mexico is a mess and sadly, the Biden administration has no serious border policies to contain the instability that will inevitably make its way to the states. Instead, the Biden administration is more concerned with getting bogged down in quagmires in the Middle East.
