Do Not Be Alarmed

Everything is fine. 

This is not happening.

I work in the shipping industry, and it was like someone hit the panic button Monday. We're getting buried under trailer loads of toilet paper and ammunition on top of home deliveries of everything else plus Christmas stuff. 

It's not Thanksgiving yet.

1 Considering the lunatics running the asylum are using the the Wuhan Flu to restrict people...Again...

For example, Governor Wolfe of Pennsylvania wants to extend the masking mandate to people's private homes...And we are suppose to trust his word on the election results from the state?

3 Factories are still churning it out, they just sell everything they can make.

4 Lucky Gunner has ammo almost all the time. They even started getting .380 back in stock.... at $1.00 a round for ball. It was $0.88 on Thursday for the same brand, Aguila.

5 Seems to me the shortages are a self-fulfilling prophecy. Local news reports a story about it (and of course they do, these stories come in a can from somewhere and are easy to open up and reheat, so to speak) and BOOM. Local tp shortage.
I went to the local grocery last week, plenty of tp. Went on Tuesday, after one of those stories? While the tp aisle wasn't *cleared out,* it was a lot emptier than it had been.

No, I didn't buy any, I had a big pack at home and bought a SECOND big pack when the local caseload dipped and I felt okay making a run to the nicer grocery store an hour's round trip away.

I also noticed stockers rapidly refilling the canned goods aisles, so I suspect that's the next story up, that people are hoarding food again.
