BONUS: This weekend, I went to a local sporting goods store to purchase a basketball for my son. While there, the store was implementing social distancing techniques by having people check in to a line but wait in their vehicles for their turn to enter the store. Gun and ammunition purchasers were among the many people shopping. This comports with the Los Angeles Times recent article showing that in abnormal times like these, gun and ammunition sales, as well as crime increase. Please take care of yourselves, your loved ones, your employees, and your property.
