As precautions go this one is quite bizarre. A major retailer has taken guns and ammunition off its shelves which it says because of protests. This is happening only the areas where there are protests presently. However, both guns and ammunition remain for sale if requested. They are taking a precautionary measure not to have them readily on display. Protesters may decide to invade the store and have the items ready to hand. There have been violent protests in several cities in the US in th last week with no sign of abating. This one again occurred because of the killing of a black man by police officers. It is debatable whether firearms and ammunition are on the shelves in a supermarket.
The US remains one of the very few places on earth where this is found.
