Cities that are run by liberals are beginning to cut off gun sales, which have skyrocketed throughout the country in recent days with the coronavirus pandemic shutting down America.
San Jose, Calif. Mayor Sam Liccardo declared that gun stores were “non-essential businesses,” and they are no longer permitted to stay open during the lock down effective immediately.
“We are having panic buying right now for food,” Liccardo said on Wednesday. “The one thing we cannot have is panic buying of guns.”
The San Jose police explained how they carried out an order to shut down the Bullseye Bishop gun store, which had a massive line of people buying weapons before they were forced to close.
“We went out there and closed it,” San Jose police Chief Eddie Garcia said, mentioning that the gun store owner was complaint as they were snuffing out his livelihood.
The move to ban gun stores has only made the emergency situation even more tense as panic grips the public. People are worried that they will not be able to defend themselves and their family as the crisis worsens.
“Essential? It’s our right to arm ourselves,” 37-year-old painting contractor Joshua Wolfe said. “Toilet paper is essential, right? People are going nuts for that, right?”
“If they’re short on supplies, they’ll come after people who are prepared,” Wolfe added.
“I’ve seen people fighting over toilet paper. I’m worried what they will do out of desperation,” said 31-year-old San Jose resident J.V. Sumabat.
“When people start looting stores and they don’t have access to food, they could come into the homes of those they feel are vulnerable. I’d rather be prepared,” he added.
There are also reports that the city of Washington D.C. has halted gun sales as well.
I was just told by DC Metro PD that the only federal firearms licensed dealer in DC has stopped accepting applications to transfer firearms. Translation: for now, you can no longer buy a gun in DC.

Meanwhile, the fake news is urging people to be unarmed and vulnerable during this unprecedented disaster.
“And, so, if the best way to stop the coronavirus pandemic is to listen to the guidance of health professionals and scientists, then Americans must also tune out the grifters who are using this crisis to sell more firearms and embrace the overwhelming and conclusive science around the dangers of gun ownership,” wrote anti-gun activists Igor Volsky and Joseph Sakran in a CNN op/ed.
“If you’re looking to protect your family, continue to buy food and basic essentials as needed, not guns and ammunition — and then stay home,” they concluded.
The Left is making it difficult for ordinary people to be able to defend themselves and their property during the coronavirus crisis.
National Foundation for Gun Rights Pitched in $50K for Kyle Rittenhouse’s Legal Defense
They’re stepping up to the plate.
The National Foundation for Gun Rights (NFGR) announced on September 17, 2020 that they are providing $50,000 of aid to Kyle Rittenhouse, who is facing various criminal charges after he defended himself and business owners from leftist agitators in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
“I spoke with Kyle’s mother this morning to let her know NFGR received over a thousand donations amounting to over $50,000 from folks who support her son,” declared Dudley Brown, Executive Director of the National Foundation for Gun Rights.
Rittenhouse’s mother was thankful about receiving the donation. She stated, “No words can describe what we’re going through. Thank you so much – and I know Kyle and the rest of the family would say thank you too.”
NFGR’s funds will go towards the Kyle Rittenhouse trust fund that is being operated by his attorney, John Pierce. The funds will only be used according to the desires of Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother.
“We want Kyle to have the best defense possible,” remarked Brown. “If he were getting a fair shake from prosecutors, he would be home with his family right now instead of spending weeks in a jail without bail.”
According to video footage taken on the night of August 25th, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was fleeing an armed mob who were screaming, “Beat him up!” and “Get that dude!”
“The left is doing everything in their power to portray a 17-year-old kid as the villain,” stated Brown. “We believe Kyle acted legally and defended himself from a dangerous group of armed thugs whose clear intent was to cause permanent harm.”
The National Foundation for Gun Rights plans on continuing to back the Rittenhouse family until Kyle is able to receive justice for simply exercising his sacred right to self-defense.
NFGR is the legal arm of the National Association for Gun Rights. Since its founding in 2000, NAGR has been one of the leading no compromise, Second Amendment organizations in the country.
Unlike most organizations, they’re willing to fight all unconstitutional gun control legislation at the federal and state level. Second Amendment supporters can donate to NAGR and NFGR at the links below:
