    Black.

    Now, before you go off on some little rant telling me how racist I am, allow me to assure you that it's not their skin color which concerns me but, rather, their conduct...

    I think it isn't a reaction to the virus, but the mandates from government telling folks they can't venture out from their homes, or otherwise live normal lives right now. When folks become desperate, things aren't going to be manageable by regular policing.

    Why would someone need extra guns if the govt mandates we stay in our homes?

    One hopes that anyone who becomes desperate, regardless of their race or gender looks for legal options before they believe in their own entitlement and try taking their needs from others.

    Because you choose not to, or because you don't see the reasonable possibility that 3-6 months of the Great Cononavirus Panic might lead to any number of things that would greatly increase violence withing the US?

    Because, rest assured, there will be people who won't stay in their homes and, instead, will try to enter yours...

    There is no evidence that those who are purchasing firearms presently, are current firearm owners seeking to simply increase their own supply.

    Of course.

    I stopped having that much faith in humanity, however, some time ago...

    I expect that, like now, folks aren't just staying home, and no, there isn't enough policing in the country to overcome a public that can't sustain their daily lives staying at home. Convince me this won't be the case.

    Re: the topic title.
    I picked up a case of 5.56 last week, and I have a case of x51 in transit, plus 4 more AR10 mags.
    Never know.

    On the contrary according to some estimates as much as 75% or more of the people buying guns during this pandemic are first time gun buyers.

    Your opinion means dick to me.

    On my street, in my rather well-to-do golf course community, there are four black families. I'm quite friendly with all of them. They're wonderful people and I count them all among my good friends.

    I don't give a damn about skin color. I'll drop a white guy just as quickly as I will a black guy if he threatens me..

    Optimism is a commodity which is in short supply these days...

    Of course there isn't enough policing. I just don't believe the apocalypse is coming. You are free to be paranoid of such occurring.

    What reality? You're worried about something that isn't happening.
