I don't understand reading that ammo is selling fast because of the virus. That makes less sense than the TP sellout. I haven't been anywhere for a while to see ammo, but Sam's Club was bare of TP yesterday.

Scheels and Sportsmens had sales starting yesterday. Both were very busy, background checks were taking 5hrs. Sportmens had set guns and ammo purchase limits to be out in front of a possible run I guess. I wasn't going to wait 5hrs so I made the purchase and told them I would be back midweek, midday to do the background check and complete the transaction. TP is scarce around here. I'm single and buy the biggest box of tp available. One because it's cheaper and two so I only have to think about it once a year or so. Our executive order governor ordered all ski resorts closed yesterday. The preventive actions are going to be more damaging than the disease in the end, but that seems to be the intent. Never let a crisis go to waste!

Went to our main grocery, Kroger, today. No paper goods, no milk, very little bread, even cookies and chips were nearly gone.

I did inventory at home. We have 300 double rolls of TP, so we are good for anything.......

I'm wondering about my bus job. There is a possibility of this virus shutting us down, but I understand they have insurance to cover our being paid, and their lost revenue. I hope I've heard right, third hand from a supervisor telling a co-worker.
Hasn't stopped my son here, yet. They clean the buses after each run and give drivers plenty of sanitizers, both spray and wipes and had to go through some special training. They are also supposed to have no contact, or minimal at best, with rider. With Seattle all but shut down, it should not be much of a problem.

Well, today is the day! Snake is shutting down the State! Well not quite, awaiting his announcement but, shutting down all bars and restaurants other than drive through or curb service but, keeping grocery stores open. Now that makes a lot of sense if you are trying to keep people safe, bars I can understand! Limiting all gatherings to under 50 with health dept. approval. Guess we'll see what other businesses he shuts down, I did see REI closed all of it's stores, at least locally.

Can you imagine if there ever is a virus actually due all the fear and panic given this one ?

Went to Burger King today. This one had closed their dining area, take out only. So we went down the street to Taco Bell. Only problem, no sauces, straws, napkins, or sporks out on the usual counter. You have to ask for any of that.

McDonald's won't let you eat inside, either.....If I gotta eat at home, I might as well eat what I've got at home.

People are getting dumber by the second......

Saw Gov of NH made all restaurants take out only and schools are on line no classes. I hear the shortages up there are really bad with store sold out of meat, TP and other essential items. Not worried about meat as I have a freezer stocked with venison but getting home may be an issue. May have to rethink leaving 3/29. See how things go I guess.

Seems truckers are already having a problem with drive thrus refusing walk-ups, common sense folks? NOLA, CHI and Ohio, I believe, banning gun and ammo sales? Thought that was ruled unconstitutional after Katrina or was that just confiscation?

It's going to be an interesting few weeks! I have already heard talk of city people thinking rural areas might be targets for supplies, my 2 cents, go for it if you think it is wise!

City people preying on Country folk would be a bad idea.

Heard people that never owned a gun are now realizing that the politicians lied when they said how easy it was to buy guns on line. What is the FFL thing you are talking about?

Saw 2 articles yesterday, one was a U of W genetic study tracing the origin of the virus's beginning in Kirkland. They tied 35 people to a single source that was a Chinese H1B employee of either Microsoft or Amazon, don't remember which, that had gone home to Wuhan to celebrate Chinese New Year. The other was a rather interesting theory tying Bill Gates and Obama to this mess:

Read this today and have heard most but not all in one statement. What was not mentionedwas Gate's ressigning from the Microsoft Board last week.

What do yo think? Most should be provable or not.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?? NOT MY THOUGHTS. A TOPIC FROM ANOTHER GROUP READ BELOW:

"Bill Gates & Barack Obama released a docuseries on Netflix called PANDEMIC in January right before the Wuhan virus was "discovered."
The docuseries pushed the need for the Gates' Foundation to receive funding to carry on virus research to prevent the next PANDEMIC!
Bill Gates funded the Wuhan lab in China that released the Wuhan virus. Bill Gates' was a member of China's Academy of Sciences who built the lab and he was awarded their highest honor.
The Wuhan virus was originally developed at the University of North Carolina by NIH grants approved by the Obama administration in 2012.
The NIH defunded the UNC research in 2016 so the Communist Chinese scientists left UNC and took their work to the NEWLY BUILT Wuhan lab in 2017 - funded by Gates & pals.
The head of the Harvard Chemistry department, with ties to Gates & Epstein, was arrested for accepting bribes from the Communists. Did Epstein know what was coming?
The Pirbright Institute, funded by Bill Gates, owns the "patent" on the Coronavirus genetic sequencing. They did simulation testing on a global PANDEMIC in 2018.
Bill Gates & Barack Obama docuseries marketed the need for a global "universal" vaccine to replace all other flu vaccines. I believe it will be designed to deliver a human chip via nanotechnology.
12,469 people in the US died of H1N1 flu (from Mexico) under Obama in 2009, many of them children, because he waited 6 months to do anything & never closed the border.
The media said nothing about fatalities from H1N1 but is creating a huge panic around the 20 US deaths from the Wuhan virus to destroy the US economy before the election.
Over 36,000 people in the US have died from the common flu this year and the media says NOTHING about that - but is creating a huge panic around the 20 US deaths from the Wuhan virus.
18 out of the 20 total US deaths from the Wuhan virus have come from a nursing home in Kirkland, Washington - the home area of Bill Gates.
Half the staff at that nursing home have been infected with Wuhan virus. They appear to be the carriers. The nursing home draws employees from a large Chinese population across the border in Canada. I believe Gates is placing carriers in vulnerable locations for the narrative and funding.
Right after the first deaths were reported in Bill Gates home area, the Governor declared a national emergency & Congress approved over $ 8 billion - even though Trump asked for only a quarter of that. Much of the funding will flow to Gates' global partners.
Suddenly Bill Gates says his "foundation" will offer in-home testing kits where you swab your nose with a Q-Tip and send it to his labs. How convenient!
19 out of the 21 who tested positive on the Princess Cruise ship were CREW MEMBERS. Meaning the crews are carriers and are infecting passengers. Who put them there?
The virus started in South Korea because the leaders of a "doomsday" cult went to Wuhan, China and went back and infected 8,000 of their members. Who paid them to do that?
Iran's leaders suddenly became infected after Iran's foreign leader met with John Kerry in Munich and laughed about the virus on camera. Almost like he was told to go home and create panic.
All those videos out of Communist China of them disinfecting the streets, people dying on the streets and thrashing bodies - were all fake and sent out by Communist propagandists.
Real videos show Hong Kong freedom fighters being rounded up in handcuffs and sent off to the "hospital" where it's likely their organs are harvested and they are cremated.
Real videos show elderly people in Communist China trapped in buildings and left to die with no food.
Real videos show that Communist China installed major NEW surveillance cameras and technology to monitor people on the street & in their offices since the virus was released.
Real videos show the Chinese people yelling "IT'S ALL FAKE" from high rises as the Communists pretend to care for them on the streets below.
They are now forced to use an app which tells them when they can come and go and tracks their every move. How did the Communists suddenly develop this technology in a month? This was part of the plan.
After Trump closed travel from Communist China in January, the Chinese blamed the US and threatened to hold back our pharmaceuticals unless we opened travel back up again. They didn't expect him to do that - that thwarted their plans to seed the US with more cases.
I believe the virus is no more dangerous than the common cold - but has been engineered to be highly infectious and impact the elderly & sick. Thankfully, it is NOT affecting children & young adults like pandemic flu does.
I believe the virus was unleashed by the Communist Party to scare people back into their homes and stop the Hong Kong & Taiwanese pro-freedom protests.
I believe the virus was unleashed by the Communists to crash the US economy & drive people away from Trump rallies.
I believe the virus was unleashed to help the Communists assert global control and to cull the elderly and weak.
ALL respiratory viral outbreaks peak in March and end in April. I believe this one too.
The SARS Coronavirus panic dropped the market 20% in March 2003, under Bush, and it came roaring back even higher by July. In other words, they've done this before to a Republican administration before an election.
Now the fake news is trying to distance Wuhan from the virus -- and so is China. That means we're right over the target.

How many think you can buy a gun online, and the mailman hands it to you two days later? I looked back through the thread and didn't see anything about FFL?

All of it sounds plausible, if it could really be brought to the public's attention. I can understand Nobama being involved, just to help the Democrats. Killing lots of people wouldn't bother him any more than his college bomber buddy Bill Ayers.

But Gates involvement doesn't make solid sense. He's got more money than the Mint, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation supposedly "helps people live healthier lives while lifting themselves out of poverty", to quote an article from Google. What would he gain, unless he just thinks the old and weak are in the way of his goals? He is basically a greedy narcissist.

Proof enough the way he traps people into having to get new Windows systems every few years by gradually doing "updates" that ruin the current system.....A real believer in technology would let you upgrade over and over for a minimal charge. New users and new computer sales would keep him more than rich enough.

Italy has government run healthcare. Remember the "death squads comments"? Those over 80 in Italy are being denied intensive care. Lets make you comfortable so you can die.

Let's see....what's the latest figure for dealing with COVID19, 800 million? Maybe the Democrats are thinking it will come from Trump's Wall money? Just wait and see........

If you had wanted to use the Taco Bell toilet, you'd have found that you have to ask for TP too.
