I would ask you to consider the following: while there is a pandemic,not everyone involved cares about the virus. There may be some who see it as a political opportunity to achieve what they couldn’t achieve without the power of emergency laws.
In one of the other post a member submitted an article on how seeds(food,vegetables etc) were not being sold( or banned from being sold by govt)
While there are many reasons stores may ban sale of goods(social distancing and all), in this case one might also see other issues, food being called non essential, a govt ability to have a people self regulate military law style sequestering as a shot coupled with making choices of what is or is not allowable to live ( operative word being allowable).
Some could easily see these things coupled with production rationing and realignment of allowable goods as government overreach and a quiet( no outward war) war to usurp rights. Obviously a lot could depend on if these changes are kept in place or removed after the pandemic ( rarely do laws get removed,they are just shelved until needed again).
A different example might be all of the preachers that have been locked up,the question might be ,did they violate a health order? Did those congregations( the individual members) have a right to decide for themselves about attendance? In the 1 Florida instance the congregation and preacher followed all the health rules( relative to size of meeting,social distancing etc) and was still arrested,then the mayor (I believe) said publicly there are lots of other counties to worship in, there will be no worship in this county.-- right or wrong,there is a possibility of rights removal in these examples, of government local or larger going astray? These are the types of possibilities that I am referring to as do they(children) see. The Federal govt is (some might say) being forced by this virus and parties not concerned with the people into certain actions that are more socialist or communist in their basic underpinning.
Will those actions(regulations or consequences of them stay? They may not represent the country,and politics may have forced them on the country as a whole. It is these issues that one might want to keep an eye on.
No matter what side of an issue people are on,if you can determine whether or not it is country(whole country) approved,you can start seeing massive violations of rights are being or might be removed.
If the violations are not related to the event,but the event is being used as a means to promote an agenda,it might be possibilities to be evaluated when thrown up against our Constitution.
Or even when one looks historically at what once was doable in life,that now might get u locked up.
It is these issues,I would wonder aboutour children seeing.
We know sometimes a few years makes a huge difference in how a situation is.percieved,but if it is at least perceived,there is saftey,if it is not perceived then we may be one step closer to losing it all.
It is these things,I am asking about -which may cause some, to keep shooting, continue in self sufficiency and more . There are always critical situations, but responses vary.
Pre covid-19 a lot of Asians in California saw no need for the 2a,after covid-19 a lot saw the need to buy a weapon for the possibility of self protection,fearing even the govt wouldn’t keep them safe(intentionally)(Thinking China hate backlash) ( per news reports- validity is not substantiated by me,just re reporting)
A lot more right or wrong gun owners now ( hoping they all get trained- please Please please) but their view of the 2a may have just changed
It is vigilance in these things and more,making possibilities
Thoughts Jerzy and all. As always if anything is deemed uninformed or rude,mean etc. It is definetly not my intent.
