The Way Of The Gun

In a truly surprising move, California residents have purchased more than 110,000 firearms since the Chinese Wuhan Virus was delivered escaped.

A new study reveals that 110,000 Californians bought guns during the coronavirus pandemic, 43% for the first time — and the most common reason given was fear of “lawlessness.”

The study, carried out by the Violence Prevention Research Program at the University of California Davis, casts firearm purchases as a response to the “pandemic,” and concludes that COVID-19 “exacerbated persistent structural, economic, and social inequities in the conditions that contribute to violence and its consequences.”

The study reveals that 43% of the people who purchased firearms during the pandemic were first-time gun owners. The authors conclude that this reflects underlying inequalities in society — that “the coronavirus pandemic and efforts to lessen its spread have compounded the burden of violence-related harms.”

Um yeah, it’s the inequalities in society and not, say…

However, the authors appear to overlook another explanation — namely, the fact that violent riots were going on in California and the rest of the country during the period in which its online survey of 2,870 adults was taking place.

The irony here is even leftists were probably buying guns to save themselves against policies they universally support. They bought their guns and will still gleefully vote for Biden, Harris, etc.

  1. Those lefties will have a big case of the sads if 10% Joe does get elected. He’ll be taking the guns from the lefties that bought them. Probably with minimal, if any, compensation.

  2. Mike AKA Proof – Can you really have too many guns?

    TX Nick – Philly does gun buybacks often, and they’re a miserable failure. Turn in your gun, and you’ll get 25% off your next meal at Stuckey’s.

    Ronni – It never ceases to amaze.

    Veeshir – Of course they will. There was a post at AOSHQ claiming NYC citizens are going to leave the city when the election comes because they don’t want to be there for the riots.

    Screw that. You voted for that debacle, so you don’t get to flee.
