There has also been a large increase in the sale of weapons and ammo all around the country. People are waiting in lines in order to get the guns they need to defend themselves just in case something chaotic were to happen.
The anti-Second Amendment Democrats, such as the Mayor of New Orleans who issued a ban on gun sales, see this as conservative panic, but it is just good old common sense.
According to data from Ammo.com during the three-week period of February 23, 2020 to March 15, 2020:
• Revenue increased by 309%
• Website traffic increased by 77%
• In the state of Delaware, ammunition sales increased by 4,529%
People who work at gun shops say that they have never seen this level of a surge in sales before. People are buying guns and ammo as if they are preparing for an end-of-the-world scenario.
