Here’s something interesting.
I decided I wanted to purchase a Remington 870 Express Tactical shotgun. I called around to gun dealers in the area as far out as Kernersville and was told by each of them that they not only had none in stock, but they cannot get any right now. Their suppliers are not getting any either and cannot say when they will have any available. One dealer even said they have no tactical style shotguns or rifles in stock and don’t know when they will get any in.
Additionally I asked about ammunition. I was told by most stores they are either low or out of 9mm. Some are restricting the sale of 5.56mm/223 calibers to 3 boxes per purchase. Again, they can’t say when or how much they will get in from their sources.
Part of the problem is that truckers have expressed reluctance to carry cargo to cities where there have been widespread protests and rioting. This is affecting the replenishment of all categories of goods. As one example, if you’ve been to the Food Lion in Forest Oaks lately you see more than normal empty or near empty shelves, and I don’t mean just the toilet paper, paper towel, liquid hand soap and various sanitizers. I want to make it clear this is not the fault of the store or its management staff. They are an awesome group of people and a pleasure to interact with. And I don’t believe it’s the fault of the upper management of Food Lion itself. These shortages are costing them profits.
Another thing becoming more widespread is the spinoff from the calls to defund, or as I put it, defanging police departments across the country. Families, friends, and open supporters of LEOs are being shunned, insulted, mistreated, and in an alarming number of cases threatened with physical violence. Their homes are being vandalized, their children bullied, their lives in general badly disrupted. Some people are afraid to openly express support for the police. I, on the other hand, (being the right-wing radical fire brand that I am) have a sign in my front yard in full view of the street that says in big letters “WE SUPPORT OUR POLICE Thank you for protecting our families and community” It’s right there with my other yard sign that says “I’m a Proud Christian American”
I won’t hide who and what I am. I also won’t hesitate to stand up for it. I gave 20 years of my life (and a couple of other things) standing up and defending this country and if called upon I’d do it again.
