First off, thank you for supporting the 2A journalism we do here at Bearing Arms, and I hope you all will join me for a live chat for our VIP Gold members this afternoon at 3:30 p.m. ET. The coronavirus craziness has caused a surge in gun and ammunition sales around the country, and now we’re starting to see more governors and mayors try to impose a ban on the sale and transfer of firearms. In New York State, Remington has been ordered to shutter its factory, and gun stores have been deemed non-essential businesses in New Jersey and parts of California as well.
We’re now seeing Second Amendment groups start to fight back with lawsuits, but this is still one of the most critical times for our right to keep and bear arms in our nation’s history.
We’ll be talking about all these developments and more this afternoon during an editor’s chat for VIP Gold members. From the staggering number of new gun owners to the fact that millions of Americans are now living under emergency orders that prevent them from acquiring arms to keep and bear, we are living in an extraordinary moment for the Second Amendment. The live video stream will be added to this post shortly before 3:30pm ET. If you’re not a VIP Gold member yet, you can join below!
