So DH in law enforcement told me yesterday they haven’t heard Martial Law but one of his officers has been called up by the National Guard. Self quarantine seems to be the current recommendation.

Ammo sales are up. People are concerned. Newsom in California just let out an excess of inmates. These are strange times and I am sure people are scared and want to be able to defend themselves if needed. Law abiding citizens don’t shoot other people for toilet paper but there is concern that an increase in lawlessness may occur. Some have no intention of being victimized .

and just where are these "rumors" coming from?
I've been to Lowe's and Walmart today .... everything looked normal - people shopping. I bought everything I needed.
No black helicopters
Walmart even had toilet paper ! :D
Went to Food Lion today no toilet paper, but everything else was normal. Many elderly, 70s and 80s, out shopping. Oh yea, keep in mind, when in a crowd don't cough. They all take off running.

I can't say it's too far fetched. There's been helicopters out more than usual lately. Whenever I see one while walking my dogs, I wonder if they are going to tell me I can be out walking my dogs. I walk through/by 3 parks every day. They could just be flying by to make sure that there aren't any groups gathering. :shrug:

I can say that Target team members have been given paperwork today that verifies that we are "essential workers." There is a phone number on the paperwork for law enforcement to call. Yes, I would say that martial law is a distinct possibility.
I received the same kind of letter today, I work IT at a Distribution Center for large retail pharmacy chain.

I agree! For two days this week the helicopter traffic over my house was intense. Low and slow, shook my roof.

"Essential Personnel" continue to work even if the Governor issues a stay at home order like California. I like how Marijuana Stores were declared "Essential" in California." Have to keep people pacified. Hopefully Liqour Stores are also "Essential."

Weird, I've had none that I can remember. Just normal military traffic.

Btw, our city closed the dog parks. I hope that the Husky owners survive because this is serious for them!

yes ! :)

On the local news in Virginia they showed people lining up at the gun stores. The store owners said it's been record sales this past couple of weeks. Apparently people believe this will be similar to the zombie apocalypse movies only real life.

this was a gun store in Norfolk where they only allowed a limited number of people in the store. They had lines outside - one line for ammo sales, another for guns.

Strange times we're in. There are reports that kids here are supposedly going into grocery stores and coughing directly on the fresh fruit and vegetables on purpose. I may be old now but I don't ever remember a time when I would have thought that was fun or funny.

Far more likely that they are media helicopters. There's no traffic so the trafficopters are looking for something to report.

All kidding aside, lots of training in San Diego recently involving Osprey aircraft (helicopter/airplane hybrid). Yes, they can be noisy, but are preparing for ongoing deployment overseas. As I'm sure you heard, we call it around here, "The sound of freedom."

Canada did this in 1970 during our Quebec based civil war. Canadian Prime Minister said a few days ago he will do it again. Basically a suspension of rights and freedoms, jail on a whim, etc.
