    When they confiscate it, at least you aren't out that much money.

    I have some odd jobs around the house I could use a friend to help with. No contracting of course. I could pay in beer, or coupons for beer that have “in God we trust” on them.

I don't foresee myself needing to have a shootout with government storm troopers while out driving, but there's always a chance that someone who wants your vehicle could need to be dissuaded at the barrel of a gun.

    My own drive to Walmart for my second job is 12 miles one way and I don't drive through any sketchy areas - half of it is highway travel.
    The potential "trouble" is likely going to be at either destination - at work, or at home.

    With what's going on, keeping the rifle in the vehicle could become a problem if stopped - legal or not - so I can understand your concern.
    Not really sure what to say on that other than to say that you have no obligation to disclose that you have a rifle in the vehicle.

    Keeping some supplies on board certainly isn't going to hurt.
    I second the concern with increased break-in potential.

    Also considered essentail. I bring a bag to work with me. It has food and water, some meds I might need, an extra battery for my phone, charger cord for my phone and a few other needed items. My truck is parked in a fenced in enclosure at work. My drive is about fifteen minutes. Work has not issued a letter as if yet. My wife's place has given her a letter stating where she works.

    I'm an RN at a hospital in Pittsburgh, 35 miles from home. I have a get home bag, AR pistol in 300 BO with 4 mags, and a Glock 19 with 4 mags. I'm hoping to not use any of this stuff.

My contact there said that my company had an hours-long meeting with another division of my company the other day on business continuity, stressing the importance of the products their parts go into. Apparently that division makes a diagnostic platform for virus testing. Our supplier is now notifying all of their suppliers. They've also contacted their NY state rep and forwarded the letter that my company gave them, to make sure the state doesn't shut them down.

    One problem is that the supply chain is such an infinite web that there are plenty of companies that don't know that their parts or materials wind up in critical medical products. Plus, we get a small number of key components from China, primarily PC-based control panels. It's only a matter of time before our lines shut down.
    All of the companies, hospitals, and suppliers espoused the ‘just in time’ supply chain idea twenty years ago. It works just fine, and saves a shit-ton of money ( bigger bonuses for the top tier), and all is wonderful.
    UNTIL a truck breaks down, or demand rises suddenly for whatever reason. Now we are seeing the beauty of having a reserve tank on a motorcycle, or a warehouse full of readily available rotating stock nearby.

    I'll find out tomorrow morning if the township will issue me a permit for a sidewalk job.
    Other than that, any job not requiring a permit will be done.

    I work about 70 miles from home in NY. The only thing I've been doing differently is filling up my car daily. Might be a good idea to pack a bag.
