Americans bought over 2 million firearms in March of 2020, over a million more than this time last year. We have to keep each other safe by social distancing and washing our hands and not bringing dangerous firearms into our homes. #StopTheCoronavirusGunSurge #NoRA pic.twitter.com/O5J98QXTFO

Alyssa Milano jumped on the Hollywood gun control bandwagon a few years ago, starting an abortive, failed campaign she imaginatively called NoRA. We documented her presentation of the NoRA manifesto outside the 2018 NRA convention.
She’d pretty much dropped off the “gun safety” radar in the last year or so aside from the occasional tweet. But then she took heavy fire after exposing herself as an utter hypocrite when it comes to the #metoo movement. She was widely ridiculed for her obvious partisan double standard where sexual harassment allegations are concerned.
That kind of public humiliation called for an immediate change of direction to distract the dozens of internet denizens who pay any attention to what she has to say. So with that in mind, Milano has miraculously discovered that…hold onto your hats….Americans seem to be buying a lot of guns these days (many of them for the first time).
This, of course, cannot stand, hence her video imploring all of the stupid rubes out there to #StopTheCoronavirusGunSurge.
So I’m making this video because I’m seeing reports all over the country of Americans responding to the coronavirus outbreak by buying up guns and ammunition and I know that we’re all scared and stressed out during these really uncertain times.
But that is exactly why stockpiling weapons, you know, could have dire consequences for our own personal safety and those around us.
You know the weapons that people are buying today could end up being used in households, schools, churches, bars, and on our streets in the future. So we all have to look out for each other.
So please, please, please, share this video to help stop the coronavirus gun surge. You know, we can’t lose any more lives to guns during this pandemic or after it’s over.
