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.
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.
