That proves the point that common sense is not common.
Buying guns and ammunition does nothing but creates a false sense of security.
People bought guns because of the fear that COVID-19 will cause a civil war within the country. Similar thinking exists in the White House; thats why Military was called out to defend against the street violence. Average rural American is still living in the days of "How the West was Won." This is highly unlikely to happen.
Similarly there was no reason to purchase huge quantities of toilet paper in the wake of COVID-19. My limited common sense, to this day, fails to make that connection.
