A lot of people are making trips to their local supermarkets and feeling a little weird. We’re used to 15 different varieties of paper towels and a like number of brands of toilet paper. The pictures from my own trip to the store yesterday is pretty illustrative, from what I’ve been able to tell.
The empty shelves may well be driving the massive spike in gun sales as many people have become concerned with protecting them and theirs from potential hordes looking for supplies should things get even more out of hand than they already are.
It’s likely that any such shortages won’t be over toilet paper, though. Instead, it’ll be about food.
