INT’L – RETAILERS – Grim video shows Americans panic-buying guns amid coronavirus fears (VIDEO)

While the coronavirus continues to spread throughout the world some people are stockpiling toilet paper and food, while Americans are flocking to buy guns. Images and videos of people lining up outside gun stores in the United States are emerging on social media. Amelia Adams, the US correspondent for Nine News tweeted a video of people lining up outside a gun shop in Los Angeles, with the queue trailing some 10 metres from the shop’s door down the sidewalk. Ms Adams said in her tweet people were telling her they were “scared of what will happen if people run out of food and supplies, and they need to protect their families”. “I have never been more thankful for my countries strict gun laws,” one person said in response to the video. Another twitter user shared a video from inside a store, presumably also in California, where more than 20 people are seen in the store trying to get their hands on some ammunition. According to CBSN, gun sales are “skyrocketing” in the San Gabriel Valley, as Asian-Americans fear they may be targeted in racial attacks due to the spread of coronavirus. David Liu, the owner of Arcadia Firearm and Safety in the San Gabriel Valley admitted to CBSN he was worried and he recently purchased a gun for his wife. One customer Daniel Lim said he wants his family to be able to protect themselves and he was hoping and praying a financial crisis caused by the spread of COVID-19, and potential social disorder which may follow, does not happen.  [full article]
