Coronavirus: San Jose orders gun store to close in one of first enforcement against businesses open under shelter order
Willow Glen gun shop stayed open, then ordered closed, with modest fanfare; police say they focused on warnings and education for suspected violations of stay-at-home order
SAN JOSE — As Bay Area business owners navigated the labyrinthine rules of the sweeping shelter-in-place order implemented Monday, many gun dealers across the region opted to stay open this week, amid a spike in sales apparently driven by fears over the coronavirus pandemic.

But after customers lined up around gun stores in several counties Tuesday — including outside the Bullseye Bishop in San Jose — San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo declared that “gun stores are non-essential.”

“We are having panic buying right now for food,” Liccardo said Wednesday. “The one thing we cannot have is panic buying of guns.”


I have to say, part of me agrees.

Californians who have waited until now, to obtain arms and ammo, are probably not people I'd be comfortable with guns.

But "gun stores are non-essential"?

Gun stores should be essential like hardware, grocery and gas stations. You should be able to buy guns and ammo at hardware, grocery and gas stations.

Gun shops are non-essential, until the barbarians are at the gate.

So the constitution does not apply during a state of emergency?
