Out of Guns

You can't get most guns in Maryland without first getting a Permit to Purchase.  Most useful home defense firearm at least.  Pistols.  Semi-autos.  You can get a bolt action rifle.  Not as useful guarding your giant horde of soft lavatory tissue.

But you CAN get a home defense shotgun in Maryland by just passing a couple background checks.  Take it home that day.

My local gunshop turned off their phone.  They were swamped with "do you have any shotfuns left for sale?" calls.  As soon as they hanged up it would ring again.  The answer was no.  Maybe later this week.  So they pulled the plug, announced that on Facebook, and let it be.

This is like toilet paper - how on earth can you not have one in your house on any given day?

I don't even LIKE shotguns, but I have them.
