While most states across the country have declared gun stores to be essential businesses and are allowing the shops to remain open during the coronavirus pandemic, governors in Washington State, Massachusetts, and New York are still maintaining that the shops are non-essential and should remain closed.
In each of those states, however, some gun stores are vowing to remain open, in spite of the current shelter-in-place language.
Tiffany Teasdale owns Lynwood Gun in Lynwood, Washington, and says she’s relying on guidance from the Department of Homeland Security to keep her shop open for customers.
Teasdale says she’s selling all kinds of products with her store busy all day — while practicing social distancing.
But she never expected to get so many previously anti-gun customers during the coronavirus shutdown.
“We’re getting a lot of people who voted against guns that are now coming in to purchase firearms, and now they’re getting really upset because there’s a 10-day waiting period on almost all guns and they voted for it,” Teasdale said.
“But now it’s coming back to haunt them because they tell us they’re a good person [who shouldn’t have to wait].” Bearing Arms
Good for her for standing her ground all the while she knows that a storm could be headed her way but she is willing to face it.
We wish her the best of luck and hope that she is able to keep her doors open and that the oligarchs are not able to shut her down.
