On Wednesday, March 19, 2020, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo declared all gun stores in the city to be “non-essential businesses” as a response to the growing panic caused by the Wuhan virus outbreak.
As a result, all of these stores have been forced to close as a result of the city’s shelter order.
“We are having panic buying right now for food,” Liccardo declared on Wednesday. “The one thing we cannot have is panic buying of guns.”
On Wednesday, law enforcement officials confirmed that they closed Bullseye Bishop in one of the first enforcement actions taken in San Jose on the first day of the shelter order.
“We went out there and closed it,” San Jose police Chief Eddie Garcia stated, also mentioning that the store owner was supportive and offered no resistance.
According to a reporter, store employees said the store is “closed to the public for the next three weeks” and declined to answer questions.
On the other hand, many prospective customers are disappointed by the shutdown.
Joshua Wolfe, a San Jose painting contractor, who was buying ammo, believes that the gun store has every right to stay open.
“Essential? It’s our right to arm ourselves,” Wolfe declared. “Toilet paper is essential, right? People are going nuts for that, right?”
Everyone is “on edge,” he asserted, “because people don’t know the truth of this whole situation. If they’re short on supplies, they’ll come after people who are prepared.”
J.V. Sumabat, another resident of San Jose, said he had the same concerns.
“I’ve seen people fighting over toilet paper. I’m worried what they will do out of desperation,” he stated. “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.”
Some government entities are completely exploiting this crisis to infringe on gun rights.
Americans must stand strong and declare that gun stores are essential businesses that cannot be shut down because of a crisis.
If anything, these scenarios of social chaos necessitate the ability for law-abiding individuals to arm themselves.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
