    Funny how my neighbors are asking about freeze dried food, ammo and water storage when I have been telling them to stock up on those things since I moved to the neighborhood 8 years ago.

    In Eastern Europe, people are stocking up on buckwheat. In huge bags.

    Having enough ammo is like bringing candy to school: you'd better have enough for everyone. ;)

    So seven billion rounds if you never miss a shot and multiply that number based on your missed shots percentage.

    Don't forget to throw your gun when you run out.

    Scary country you live in. To need ammo during a deadly disease.
    And what I find the most scaring part is that millions of morons are buying ammo and toilet paper.

    Are there already shootings reported from escalated toilet paper deals?

    I don't have an interest in guns, but you have to use your brain and think about it better than that.

    Most people are buying it for protection...and history has shown us you can't blame them.

    The ammo is moreso to protect from theft and home invasions if things get worse, such as people stealing food if there is a food shortage. In the movie Contagion, which is rather realistic, there’s a scene where Matt Damon hears gunshots from a neighbor’s house, calls 911, but there is an automated message for 911 saying due to the high volume of calls no one is available. He then breaks into a different neighbor’s vacant house and grabs their shotgun as apparently he didn’t own a gun. Nothing else happens which in reality is likely, but with no 911 and an increase of people stealing to get basic necessities, guns could become more necessary for survival. On shows like The Walking Dead even the kids are carrying around guns, and not primarily to fight off zombies. Things probably won’t get so bad that theft and looting homes becomes common but they could and better prepared than unprepared.

    Philadelphia and other cities are releasing prisoners en masse and police departments are not responding to most calls.
