Depression Strikes America, Looting Begins, Panic Searching “Buy Ammo” Hits Record

8777

With a labor market in freefall, ten million Americans have lost their jobs in two weeks. CNN reported Thursday afternoon that stimulus checks for households could take up to 20 weeks, which is creating a perfect storm of possible social unrest.

The Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies recently warned that a “social bomb could explode at any moment” over Western cities. That is because the evolution of the pandemic, which has crashed the American economy into a depression, could result in social unraveling in major metros, specifically in low-income areas.

We’ve noted in the last several weeks that Americans are panic hoarding guns as the fear of social unrest could be imminent. President Trump signed an executive order last Friday that allows for up to one million National Guard and reservists to be called up to fight the virus or be used to maintain social order.

With lockdowns across the country, the National Guard has been deployed across many states. Here are some sights from Baltimore:

Signs of social unrest are already starting to develop this week. Law enforcement agencies in South Carolina and California have charged people with looting businesses during the shutdowns, reported The Sun.

Police in Santa Cruz, California, arrested five people who were robbing businesses in the city, despite a “shelter-in-place” public health order enforced by the state government.

In South Carolina, police arrested two men as they attempted to raid a storage warehouse unit.

Many Americans recognize the writing on the wall of what could happen next, that is, the possibility of social unrest – and it makes sense why gun stores saw record sales across the country last month with weapons and ammo in short supply. Now Google searches for buying ammunition online are surging to a record high as America faces a new reality that a pandemic could trigger a social unraveling of the nation:

Search trend “buy ammo” hits the highest level ever across every US state:

Search trend “buy ammo online,” again another record level:

“Can you buy ammo online” soars to new highs:

And with states closing gun stores and many places running out of weapons and bullets, people are now starting to print 3D guns at home.

  1. I dont believe anything that comes from CNN. If you have direct deposit you should have a check quickly. Dont panic people. Thats all the Dumbocraps want so they can blame Trump for another lie when 90 % of this shit is all on them and thier pork they had to add to the relief bill. Then stand there with a straight face and lie about everything had to do with the virus. Only virus is Piglosi virus.

  2. and Shifty Shiff, starting another “investigation” of the government’s handling of the pandemic, ie another ‘get Trump’ scheme.

  3. I bought a firearm last week and have been buying ammo since then with ammo still in stock….. CNN is creating panic with scare tactics and lies……. burn CNN to the ground!!

    • The Communist News Network depends upon ratings and subscriptions. Stop watching or spending money on them and they will wither away.

      • I have to go a little farther for .38 shells, with Wallyworld not selling anything but .22s, and 12 & 20g shot/slugs; but I can still get what I need. The stores have limited hours because the surrounding cities all have curfews.

      • I like that depiction of CNN, those were never truer words. Democrats using this crisis as a political advancement of their so far left agenda is down right sicking. I only hope their constituants can see through their lies. Democrats see America as their Plantation and the populace as the slaves.

  4. Lets not forget the Democratic mantra, “NEVER LET A GOOD DISASTER GO TO WASTE”. Is it possible that the Wuhan virus is just barely worse than the current flu but the deep state, obama career appointees couldn’t do any thing but advise Trump that this is the worst thing since the 1350’s black plague in Europe? The credentials of the experts next to him go back how many presidents, many. Why didn’t we crash the economy during the swine flu epidemic in 2009. The press was under control and obama didn’t want to. All the people that died were described as normal for a flu season, stupid. And the press moved on.

    • You’re right! I was thinking the same exact thing!
      I’ve come around to believing that with any problem in America, you could find a demonrat politician hiding under a nearby rock!

    • look up Spanish flu of 1918 that killed off nearly 1/3 of the population records show. Remember there was no where near the number of people then as now. Still . not good.

    • Look to Sweden. All the Berniebros and Warrenites love to point out what Sweden does as a ‘socialist’ county.
      Sweden did not shut down their economy or quarantine it’s citizens, or spread fear and panic.
      They ADVISED citizens that a new strain of flu is coming, and people acted accordingly.

  5. If things do come to a head, CNN should be the first place that takes a hit from “civil unrest”.

    FOX News Report: “Armed Patriots Burn CNN Headquarters to the Ground”

    That would be news worth reporting!

  6. It was a CNN reporter yesterday at the daily briefing that kept pushing the fellow about how long it would take for the checks to get to the people. I told my wife at the time it didn’t matter what the answer was CNN would report it the way they wanted to. This is the result.

  7. The Democratic party is 58 plus percent women . And you wonder whey they are in such a mes . The lower clientele are Democrats . The uper bissenis people are Republican . Look wen trump had his rally’s and fights would brake out . He would say .
    There you go again . Paid for by crooked Hillary Clinton . And he was right . Look the destruction they do , they set buildings on fire , brake windows out of banks . Turn cars upside down . And if you were a hat that said .MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN
    They would hit that person in the face .and they would should people .
    All hatefull Democrats . And the list gos on and on
    Whey would anyone want to be a Democrat ?
    They are hateful bunch of people .

    • Depends upon how ‘Women’ is defined. There’s 108 genders now . . .
      The demonrat party is made up of nothing but welfare babies who don’t know what they are, still need mommy’s teat, and a skirt to hide under.

  8. Re: Fon morcus
    DUDE WTF? Either you are a complete moron or a troll of the nth. degree! Everyone who read your post is now stupider for having spent the time reading that disjointed mess. It almost looks like a predictive text letter minus the atrocious spelling. You might want to go sit outside for a bit, please, for the love of God if you post again use spell check at least.

  9. The demonrats have been telling their minions to ignore Trump and his administration since he was elected. They told their minions to ignore all the warnings about the Wuhan Virus. “Trump’s a liar!” “He’s too stupid to know what he’s doing”.

    “Go party”, “Go to the beach”, “Ride the subway”, “Go see a movie”, “Come to Chinatown; see the parade!”, “Marti-gras!” “What’s wrong with traveling to China?”.

    All the demonrats had $$ for eyeballs, that were still sore from crying about the Trump impeachment fiasco, and couldn’t resist the profits.
    They promised their minions Trump would be impeached. They failed.
    Their mindless young minions went to the beach, dummy-crats partied with Marti gras, attended the parades, flew to China.

    Now they’re out of money, out of work, and scared to death. Their demonrat mentors are holed up in their mansions enjoying the chaos of exercising their might; practicing for a ‘real’ martial law when they regain power.

    All the demonrat strongholds are choked with sick and dying. New York has more deaths and infections that the whole of the rest of the nation.

    They’re turning out the prisoners, and emptying the jails. Most of the “non-violent” criminals have already committed more crimes. Some have raped and murdered.

    It’s no wonder their minions are looting.

    • OMG Gerry it’s TRUE you are dumber then a rock, you’re dumb as a fence post, you’re definitely the dullest tool in the shed.
      Fake Faux News reported it a Democrat hoax, just an attack on Trumpzilla, the impeachment didn’t work so they are trying a virus now, this is no different then any flu, they are just trying to hurt his reelection, blah blah blah.
      And of course you being as stupid as you are right here you are today regurgitating the exact same words you heard on Fake Faux News two months ago, you really are a special kind of stupid.
      It’s people like you and all the others like you on this blog site that give me the inspiration to vote Blue No Matter Who just too watch your heads explode in November.

      • Grammar’s improved. Must have found Spell Check.

        Thank you for saying I’m ‘Special’. It means a lot. Am I your favorite now???

  10. You got that right Tim. Now “Schiff for Brains” wants to start another “investigation” into the Trump that will take time away better spent trying to find a way to solve the problems facing our country. Way to go demo-rats!!

  11. when free energy comes out then I will consider donating, With what you stupid retarded demon-rats stand for you will loose, Fight and get this out,now,You stupid Democrats killed the water to hydrogen inventor why? I hope you know your damnation is in hell, Hillary said in 2005 ( that the average democrat voter is just plain stupid, they are so easy to manipulate, that’s the easy part ),It looks like Trump is an oil company stooge to selling us out, you stupid retarded Trump, The only thing that will bring us out of this depression is free energy, hydrogen from water, you can make all the hydrogen, as you drive from a tank of water, you know our space shuttles,are powered by hydrogen / oxygen made from water, tell every one not buy a new car / truck, to boycott the auto company’s, when they can’t sell their pieces of junk low mileage vehicles, they will have to bring out water to hydrogen powered vehicles, and kits to change the vehicles now that we have, just think what our world would be like with free energy. a Porge vapor carburetor sitting in the patient office that gets around 200 mpg, Volkswagen diesel gets 264 mpg, The water to hydrogen auto inventor wouldn’t sell out to the demons from hell oil company’s so the Democrat gov. had him murdered with plutonium poisoning, we are getting ripped off by the oil company owned auto company’s Don’t you think it’s time to take our world back.Once free energy gets out all prices for every thing will drop.
    Also audit all the Senator’s and congressmen, they have wasted, and stole our money, make them repay all, and tax them.
    The economy will never get better, as long as free energy doesn’t come out, and all your dreams will fade away, so spread the word, stop buying new autos and trucks.

  12. Just as Jim Jones conned his followers before he killed them Trumpzilla has you fully immersed in his con his total BS, it’s so easy to fool and con RETARDicans they’ll believe anything he says or does, the simple fact remains that the majority didn’t vote for him and ain’t buying his BS, we saw that in the midterms the majority proved it then and we’ll prove it in November unless he kills us all before then, and he’s trying his best to kill us that’s for sure, he’s working for somebody and it damn sure ain’t Americans or America.
