This is an assault on the 2nd Amendment.

Cities that are run by liberals are beginning to cut off gun sales, which have skyrocketed throughout the country in recent days with the coronavirus pandemic shutting down America.
San Jose, Calif. Mayor Sam Liccardo declared that gun stores were “non-essential businesses,” and they are no longer permitted to stay open during the lock down effective immediately.
“We are having panic buying right now for food,” Liccardo said on Wednesday. “The one thing we cannot have is panic buying of guns.”
The San Jose police explained how they carried out an order to shut down the Bullseye Bishop gun store, which had a massive line of people buying weapons before they were forced to close.
“We went out there and closed it,” San Jose police Chief Eddie Garcia said, mentioning that the gun store owner was complaint as they were snuffing out his livelihood.
The move to ban gun stores has only made the emergency situation even more tense as panic grips the public. People are worried that they will not be able to defend themselves and their family as the crisis worsens.
“Essential? It’s our right to arm ourselves,” 37-year-old painting contractor Joshua Wolfe said. “Toilet paper is essential, right? People are going nuts for that, right?”
“If they’re short on supplies, they’ll come after people who are prepared,” Wolfe added.
“I’ve seen people fighting over toilet paper. I’m worried what they will do out of desperation,” said 31-year-old San Jose resident J.V. Sumabat.
“When people start looting stores and they don’t have access to food, they could come into the homes of those they feel are vulnerable. I’d rather be prepared,” he added.
There are also reports that the city of Washington D.C. has halted gun sales as well.
