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.
Marco Rubio Believes “Boogaloo” Groups are Responsible for Leftist Mayhem Sweeping Across the Country
Like clockwork, Florida Senator Marco Rubio is advancing mainstream media narratives during the current wave of rioting taking place across the nation.
On May 30, 2020, Rubio tweeted “News networks missing a big story In city after city we have a rogues gallery of terrorists from Antifa to “Boogaloo” groups encouraging & committing violence They may not be ideologically compatible but share a hatred of govt & police & are taking advantage of the protests.”

Indeed, Antifa and leftist groups adjacent to their cause have exploited protests to engage in flagrantly criminal acts such as looting and rioting.
However, the mentioning of “Boogaloo” groups is laughable.
First off, talk of “Boogalo” is done in jest and only confined to the Internet.
It has not manifested itself in a coherent form as far as physical politics is concerned.
Secondly, right wing protesters have behaved themselves peacefully in the last few months.
The same cannot be said about Antifa and its leftist cohorts.
It would behoove Rubio to get the facts straight and take the Left exclusively to task for this mayhem.
The media is already trying to change the narrative by blaming the riots on “white supremacists” and far right groups.
It makes sense for elected officials on the Right to get the facts straight and not fall for media disinformation.
For establishment figures like Rubio, this may be too much to ask for.
