The United States is struggling a lot in dealing with coronavirus. The COVID19 pandemic has reached to many places within the country. People are panic-stricken, in deep fear not knowing what to do?

Media reports also suggest that long lines are forming outside gun stores from places like California to Alabama to New York State, and it’s not just already well-armed gun enthusiasts joining in the rush.

One seller in Mesa, Arizona told a local media house that he was seeing an uptick in first-time buyers, as did a store manager in Vallejo, California.

According to Independent, a UK based news agency, an owner of a store there saw everything from Ebola to the bird flu but hadn’t seen something this crazy, he says “never seen anything like this”, with lines as much as 12 people deep at the gun counter “non-stop for weeks now”.

Buying ammunition has also hit it off the roof.

Online seller Ammo.com has released figures showing a rise in sales in the 11 days leading up to 4 March.

The top ammunition-buying US states were North Carolina and Georgia.

Another online retailer, Widener’s Reloading and Shooting Supply told the National Rifle Association that by late February, both sales and online traffic had practically doubled since the same time last year.
