    The latest item Americans are stockpiling.

    I can’t believe that I’m actually having to write this, but I’ve just seen several articles online that state that Americans are queuing up outside Gun Shops. I thought stockpiling loo rolls and other pantry staples was bad enough but apparently they are concerned that looters are going to raid their houses during the Coronavirus outbreak. Can you picture someone breaking and entering in your house to make off with your bog roll? Or having a stranger demand that you hand over your bottle of hand sanitizer? It beggars belief. Only in America is all I have to say and I’m an American!

    By the way, we also read about a man in the state of Tennessee who bought up nearly every bottle of hand sanitizer in the state and then tried to flog them on eBay. Amazon have banned him for life.

    Take care, Helen

    I can believe it Helen. Sadly They love their guns.
    don't want to work, just want to cruise.

        That’s what I wondered! Unfortunately, my fellow Americans can be as thick as two short planks at times and needless to say the biggest plank is in the White House.

        Take care, Helen

          I saw it as well and was absolutely gobsmacked.

          Fortunately, as clay pigeon shooters, we both have shotguns and cartridges so should be able to look after our toilet rolls. Will have to work out a rota for who sits at the top of the stairs in shifts during the night.
