The news has been telling me not to touch my face as it might spread the virus. But it's apparently allright for me to touch my, with a nod to Chuck Berry, ding-a-ling multiple times a day.

Tough times!

Not touching your "face" could be better (but not pleasantly) described as "your orifices"

So don't take any more medical advice from Chuck Berry.

It makes perfect sense...
People are stupid.....
The Chinese Americans are protecting themselves as they should.

We should come out with the DemoVID20 virus. Everyone would blame the Demoturds for the virus and they would have no choice but to arm themselves.

They don't want you to touch your face so you wont transfer the virus from your hands to your face, mouth, eyes, nose etc. You got it backwards.

Your "ding-a-ling" is not a ready infection path for a pulmonary (lung) disease.
Syphilis, Gonorrhea, or Chlamydia maybe.

EVERY American citizen should be exercising their 2nd Amendment Right, no matter race, religion, sex, etc...! If it takes fear to start exercising it, so be it!

Yeah, me and Trump will probably have to flip a quarter to see who squares off against Phil/Goober come 2021.

And none of that "kali-mah" crap if I have to fight you, Goober Greywhale.

I thought that was a great response.
The police had pulled back.

The shopkeepers stepped up.
Good for them.

A recent report shows that 430,000 Chinese fled the country before the border was shut off. How long did they really know about this thing before we did? How many of them drug it here? Perhaps some of them have more reason to acquire a weapon than others. Perhaps many of them should be charged with a crime if they knowingly travelled to the US with that crap. And donít tell me none of them knew it.....

The daily beast is a left-leaning site, and their articles (stories) should be read with skepticism.

First, everyone - not only Asians - has been buying guns. Blacks, Whites, Yellow, Brown, LGBTQ, whatever.

Second - after a month, I've yet to see the spate of news stories of "violence against Asians" due to the corona virus. And if it had happened, you know the media would be all over it to saddle President Trump with the outbreak. But guess what has happened after a month? Nothing. There's no widespread violence against Asians.

Why? Well, gosh, turns out most Americans aren't rabid, ignorant racists ready to turn on ethnic groups at the first sign of distress. Kind of the opposite, actually. Here we've been trying to support local restaurants as best we can, buying meals for first responders for a "win-win," and generally trying to be nice to each other.

I'm quite weary of the "America the Racist" narratives. We're the greatest country on earth. Period. Over the last century we freed millions from dictatorships; we saved millions from disease; we have fed millions out of starvation; and we have been a beacon of hope for millions everywhere.

One fact in the above is correct, the rest of it is not factual and speculation.

Since New Years Eve, which was when the Chinese government acknowledged that there was an epidemic, 430,000 people have arrived on direct flights from China to the U.S. Of these 40,000 arrived after the President's Feb. 2 order to close the border to China. These were person's of different nationalities. Thousands of whom were U.S. citizens.

279 flights from China directly to the U.S. have occurred since Feb. 2 Flights continued to land last week. This under rules allowed by the U.S. government.

All flights were regularly scheduled commercial flights with permission to land. Most landed in L.A., San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Detroit, Seattle, Newark and other major cities. Some direct flights from Wuhan.

Until mid January there were no medical checks of passengers arriving from China. Since that time they have been taking place. Mostly passengers have been required to fill out a form about symptoms and have their temperature taken. In one case on March 23 over 40 passengers landed at Kennedy airport in N.Y. were surprised that they were not quarantined.

Tens of thousands of Americans live and work in China and hundreds of American owned companies have deep business ties there. The same is true of other nations.

None of the flights were secret. They were all allowed under Federal rules including those after the "travel ban" after Americans and others tried to get home.

This was announced in a N.Y. Times article published on April 5.

When the President first announced travel restrictions to China on Feb. 2 there was push back from the WHO, China and Democrats in Congress. I suspect also from many businesses here. By this time the virus was spreading globally. People returning from trips and cruises were bringing it here as well. As many as 25% of people infected do not show symptoms. Actual testing for the virus is still spotty.

A pretty good explanation as well.

Normally the gun stores around me are frequented mostly by white people. The past couple of months the difference became like night and day, when the majority of those in the stores were Asian. So yes Asians are indeed flocking to gun stores, at least here around Seattle.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
