U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- As COVID-19 continues to spread and 
Americans continue to purchase firearms for self-defense, the FBI 
will need to maintain the National Instant Check System (NICS). 
Current wait times are already higher than ever before as 
unprecedented numbers of purchases have flooded the system. 
With no clear end in sight, Gun Owners of America has sent a letter 
to the FBI, urging them to maintain the system so Americans can 
exercise their 2nd Amendment right and defend themselves and 
their loved ones. From GOA:
Gun Owners of America sent a letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) urging the agency to avoid breakdowns in the National Instant Check System (NICS).
“Currently, the COVID-19 pandemic is revealing and exacerbating the underlying constitutional infringements with the NICS system. If state or federal governments do not remain open, then Americans will be denied their Second Amendment-protected right to purchase firearms,” GOA’s Senior Vice President Erich Pratt wrote. “The long-term solution is for Congress to repeal this law. But in the short-term, the federal government is faced with a choice: ignore the Brady Transfer Date, thus intimidating gun stores into denying Americans their rights, or reallocate resources so that Americans will not be denied their rightfully purchased firearms.”
The letter also requests that the Justice Department revoke the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF) letters that were sent to Alabama, Minnesota and Michigan, which exempted concealed carry permit holders from NICS.
“Gun Owners of America has always believed that the NICS federal background check system is unconstitutional because it infringes the Second Amendment rights of Americans… In times of uncertainty, the right to keep and bear arms is more important than ever. The Second Amendment cannot simply be put on hold because of COVID-19, any more than can the First or Fourth Amendments. Accordingly, we would urge [the FBI] to take the appropriate steps to ensure that Americans can acquire firearms during this time of need,” Pratt concluded.

Firearm ownership may be guaranteed under our Constitution by the Second Amendment. But it’s secondary at best to the New Jersey officials who’ve closed down gun stores during our Wuhan flu panic, calling them non-essential. Now two Garden State officials — who some would say are non-essential themselves — are being sued for trampling constitutional rights.

“The case was filed by the Second Amendment Foundation and the New Jersey Second Amendment Society on behalf of Robert Kashinsky and Legend Firearms, a gun shop in the state,” reports WND.com. “Defendants are Gov. Philip D. Murphy and State Police Supt. Patrick J. Callahan.”
“‘Gov. Murphy cannot simply suspend the Second Amendment, and neither can Supt. Callahan,’ said SAF founder Alan M. Gottlieb,” WND continues. “Yet, under this emergency order, that’s exactly what they’re doing. The Constitution, and federal law, don’t allow that. New Jersey may have been the first state to ratify the Bill of Rights, but they’re the last state to recognize it.”
WND further explains:
The case developed when Kashinsky sought to purchase a firearm for personal protection during the current crisis.
However, Murphy issued Executive Order 107 on March 21 that ordered all non-essential retail businesses closed to the public. The order does not include licensed firearms dealers on its list of “essential” businesses that may continue operating during the crisis.
That means the Second Amendment was violated, the case explains.
“In order for New Jersey residents to purchase firearms,” explained Gottlieb, “they must go through a licensed firearms retailer and pass a background check. However, Murphy’s order was subsequently followed by a notice posted on the state police website that the agency is no longer conducting background checks.”
The plaintiffs also explained that while they don’t seek to minimize the Wuhan flu’s seriousness and understand that lifestyle changes are currently necessary, there are constitutional limits to the actions government may take.
For example, could a state suspend the right to free speech if it somehow considered doing so beneficial in combating the virus?
Of course, firearms aren’t technically a “survival need” like water, food, and shelter — but they can be necessary for survival. In fact, when seeing all the liberals hoarding food, one should wonder: If they really think things could get that bad, do they have guns and ammo? For a mountain of food won’t help in a social breakdown situation if bad actors can take it, and maybe your life, from you.
(And what’s with the toilet paper hoarding? So when the apocalypse comes, you can drop dead with a clean backside?)
But New Jersey, where only the mobsters are supposed to have guns, isn’t alone. While demand for firearms and ammo has recently skyrocketed as common people exercise common sense, left-wing governments are again demonstrating how uncommon the quality is. As American Thinker reports:
In mid-March, Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen, of Champaign Illinois, signed an executive order declaring a state of emergency, despite the absence of any coronavirus cases in Champaign. With the order is in place, Feinen has arrogated to herself the ability to ban gun sales.
Just a few days later, on March 16, New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell also issued an emergency order allowing her to ban the sale or transportation of firearms.
In Philadelphia, the police department stopped issuing concealed carry permits, while simultaneously announcing that they would be “delaying arrests for ... narcotics offenses, thefts, burglary, and prostitution.” However, the police will “continue to arrest people carrying a firearm without a permit.” [So when three unaccountable muggers with knives rob you, you’ll be unable to defend yourself.]
In the San Francisco Bay Area, a region notoriously hostile to the Second Amendment, a gun store located in Alameda County (home to the City of Berkeley) tried to keep its two locations open despite the local and state-wide shut-down orders .
 WOW! California shuts gun stores as ‘non essential’ due to #coronavirus while letting criminals out AND reducing law enforcement?? @NRA @Solartactical pic.twitter.com/A7d3us4DXQ
 The sheriff’s department responded to the gun dealer, as the tweet below relates.
 @Solartactical you are not an essential business in Castro Valley. Please move to minimum basic operations per the Alameda County Health Order. pic.twitter.com/SWNgerwyQA
 Not surprisingly, though, Solar Tactical ultimately yielded to government pressure.
Regardless of the New Jersey case’s merit and resolution, what the above reflects is that there really are “two Americas” (at least), having two radically different worldviews. People applying common sense understand that when seconds count, the police are minutes away (it has become a cliché, I know). Realize also that the Supreme Court ruled in 2005 that law enforcement has no duty to protect you.
So you’re left to protect yourself. Yet the leftists would prevent that, instituting irrational policies that could only be driven by ill intent and/or stupidity born of intellect-clouding emotion. Miscreants bent on evil, who’ll take advantage of social breakdown and commit robbery, murder, or rape, don’t care about anti-firearms prohibitions. Such laws only affect the good people.
The leftist mentality, in its least-malevolent form and often exhibited by useful idiots ignorant of the aforementioned 2005 ruling, says “It’s the government’s job to defend us.” (Heck, Bernie Sanders inveighs even against charity, claiming that it’s the government’s job, too.) History tells a different tale.
During the Los Angeles riots in 1992, a politically correct government’s sins of omission allowed for a period of mayhem, and good citizens were harmed. Innocent truck driver Reginald Denny was beaten almost to death. And the only people able to defend themselves were the armed. Just consider ex-merchant David Joo, who described in the video below what transpired outside his store in ’92 after the police fled the scene.
On a lighter note, there may be a way for gun dealers to get around future non-essential-business-closure orders. Get your establishment classified as a grocery, and sell guns “on the side” (wink, nod). Just carry a few non-perishable food items and offer them gratis with a gun purchase. You could call your store, oh, I don’t know, Guns & Butter.
As for those who know butter, and better, they understand that government is there to protect you — until it’s not.

Gov. Murphy Admits Denying Press Credentials For NJ2AS News - Hates First Amendment as 


Governor Murphy, who’s taken our Second Amendment rights away, told NJ2AS News (on 03/27/2020) they shouldn’t have First Amendment rights. He tried to imply Alejandro Roubian is not a real journalist and should not be allowed in his pressers. Then he outright refused to answer his question. This is unreal!

Government officials from the president down to mayors aren’t taking what could be counterproductive measures against the Chinese Virus simply because top virologists and epidemiologists are providing sound data that portend a future depicted in Cormac McCarthy’s The Road.
Americans aren’t locked in their homes, washing their hands, and wondering whether they’ll die of pneumonia because all the information they receive from the leftist news sources and social media are accurate.
Rather, hard-left and Democrat activists are pumping out advertisements and faulty “science” to help Democrat president contender Joe Biden and drive public officials to adopt left-wing public policies.
The goals: destroy Trump, elect Biden, and move the country toward totalitarian socialism.
Soros Again Unsurprisingly, one dark hand behind the panic is Geoge Soros, who collaborated with the Nazis during World War II. Another is leftist billionaire Donald Sussman, the founder of something called New China Capital Management, a major investment outfit.
“The Democratic Party’s leading super PAC will begin hitting President Donald Trump over coronavirus in four battleground states, using millions from liberal billionaire George Soros,” the Washington Free Beacon’s Joel Schoffstall reported yesterday:
Priorities USA Action — the Democratic Party’s largest super PAC — will spend $6 million this week on advertisements criticizing Trump for his response to the coronavirus pandemic. The ads will run in Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The PAC received $3 million in contributions from Soros’s Democracy PAC on Feb. 21, new filings show. Soros’s seven-figure donation accounts for 77 percent of the $3.9 million the PAC reported hauling in last month.
The PAC will spend $150 million against Trump in key states, Schoffstall reported, and has raised “$27 million since January 2019. Its largest donor has been billionaire hedge fund manager Donald Sussman, who has given the group $8 million this cycle. Soros is now the group’s second-largest donor at $5 million.”
In its report on the pair of hate-Trump subversives citing the Wall Street Journal, the Media Research Center noted that Sussman gave $21 million to Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president, while Soros donated $9.5 million. The former Nazi stooge was Clinton’s second biggest contributor.
Scare Site Beyond the leftist hit job on Trump, a state representative from Alaska, two “tech bros,” as The Federalist’s Madeline Osburn called them, and a gaggle of other top tech titans are providing faulty data at their COVID Act Now mapping tool that supposedly tracks the pathogen’s progress.
Their information “provides users a catastrophic forecast for each state, should they wait to implement COVID Act Now’s suggested strict measures to ‘flatten the curve,’” Osburn reported, and governors and other public officials are acting on it.
“But a closer look at how many of COVID Act Now’s predictions have already fallen short, and how they became a ubiquitous resource across the country overnight, suggests something more sinister,” Osburn reported:
When Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins announced a shelter-in-place order on Dallas County Sunday, he displayed COVID Act Now graphs with predictive outcomes after three months if certain drastic measures are taken. The NBC Dallas affiliate also embedded the COVID Act Now models in their story on the mandate.
The headline of an NBC Oregon affiliate featured COVID Act Now data, and a headline blaring, “Coronavirus model sees Oregon hospitals overwhelmed by mid-April.” Both The Oregonian and The East Oregonian also published stories featuring the widely shared data predicting a “point of no return.”
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer cited COVID Act Now when telling her state they would exceed 7 million cases in Michigan, with 1 million hospitalized and 460,000 deaths if the state did nothing.
The models predict, ominously, a “point of no return,” a great concern because “COVID Act Now’s predictions have already been proven to be wildly wrong.”
COVID Act Now predicted that by March 19 the state of Tennessee could expect 190 hospitalizations of patients with confirmed Wuhan virus. By March 19, they only had 15 patients hospitalized.
In New York, COVID Act Now claimed nearly 5,400 New Yorkers would’ve been hospitalized by March 19. The actual number of hospitalizations is around 750. The site also claimed nearly 13,000 New York hospitalizations by March 23. The actual number was around 2,500.
In Georgia, COVID Act Now predicted 688 hospitalizations by March 23. By that date, they had around 800 confirmed cases in the whole state, and fewer than 300 hospitalized.
In Florida, COVID Act Now predicted that by March 19, the state would face 400 hospitalizations. On March 19, Gov. Ron DeSantis said 90 people in Florida had been hospitalized.
It’s no surprise that COVID Act Now’s data are shockingly inaccurate. The people who run the data site are not scientists — meaning virologists or epidemiologists, Osburn reported.
The founders are Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins, a Democrat in Alaska’s legislature, and three Democrat tech executives: “Zachary Rosen, Max Henderson, and Igor Kofman — who are all also donors to various Democratic campaigns and political organizations since 2016. Henderson and Kofman donated to the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016, while Rosen donated to the Democratic National Committee, recently resigned Democratic Rep. Katie Hill, and other Democratic candidates.”
Public officials have acted on the faulty progression models.
Last week, a top epidemiologist warned that lockdowns and other measures based on faulty data could be counterproductive.
