    That's great Canine.....I got a little bit paranoid the day after my K9 came in and Lysol'ed the whole thing, letting it air dry. Then I quarantined it for well, it's been at least 10 days now. I doubt it had any virus on it to begin with, coming from a small town in Oregon.

    ***Update: I got encouraged, got the K9 out, wrapped it in a big plastic ziploc bag, and put it into the Galco holster it came with. I am eager to carry this thing (after testing).

    OMG... You're doing way to much... Spend less time watching the news, and more time shooting your new gun.

    That has to wait.....state is shutdown by governor's order so the gun won't be tested for now. Most of my focus is keeping my father safe.

    I might be able to shoot it outside in the next few weeks though as it warms up. Unless we all socially distance, we will contribute to the deaths of millions of Americans. Once the hospitals fill, the death rate of this thing jumps to 10% plus the losses for the inability for the medical system to handle routine illnesses and injuries.

    I believe you drank the kool aid.

    Why weren't you and the US "social distancing" every year during the annual flu season? Where you not worried about keeping your family safe then?

    According to the CDC, during the 2018-2019 flu season (primarily between Oct 2018-May 2019) the flu caused more than 35.5 million illnesses, more than 16.5 million medical visits, 490,600 hospitalizations, and 34,200 deaths in the U.S. alone. The CDC estimates that up to 646,000 die worldwide annually. Only 68,489 have been diagnosed with the coronavirus, and only approx. 1000 died. Like with the flu, the elderly and sick are the ones who die while the vast majority of everyone else simply gets sick for a couple of days. Just like with the flu, many people with the coronavirus are asymptomatic.



    The above statistics are from a cropped screenshot from the CDC website that I just took and are in percentages. As you can see 91.4% of the approx 34,000 deaths ANNUALLY from the flu are people ages 50 and above. @I_Like_Turtles please explain the common sense and logic on why it makes sense for you and the rest of the country to shut down, come a halt, ruin our finances and economy, and "social distance" ourselves over the coronavirus when we have not and will never do it for the common annual flu which has very similar symptoms and kills much, much more of the same exact demographic that the coronavirus is killing? Why were you "contributing to the deaths" of of the elderly each and every year by not social distancing for the flu like you are for this less deadly virus? Both the flu and coronavirus are spread from human to human in the same manner, and your father was in just as much of a risk last year and several years before that. Had it been a year ago, you would have had handed that same K9 to your father to shoot during the flu season without a second thought... Without hosing it down with Lysol and "quarantining" it for almost 2 weeks... Where's the logic in all of it?

    Oh, and as far as Italy is concerned. They have a much older population as such, just like with the flu on an annual basis, they have one of the worlds highest death rates. Unlike most counties, Italy also is reporting that anyone who dies that happened to have the coronavirus died from the virus whereas everyone else only attributes the deaths to the virus ONLY if the person died from complications from having it...

    Democrats, with the help of the scared, misinformed, and the gullible, are going to ride this horse and sensationalize this as long as possible in order to ruin the economy. Yes, we all should be taking precautions as usual; however, IMHO, much of this this politically motivated. Bill Maher and a host other politicians an prominent democrats have been wishing and praying for the country to go into recession. They stand the most to gain by having people out of work, on welfare, and dependant on the government.

    Apparently you drank the "I suck at math" drink.

    Wuhan Flu is 10 to 20 times more contagious and 10 to 20 times more deadly than the normal flu. If you are OK with 34,200 American deaths then I hope you are OK with 100,000 to 200,000 American deaths this year from this thing alone. And that is from Trump's lead doctor, Fauci, on this thing and he is quite possibly downplaying it.

    Once hospitals get overrun, like in Italy, the mortality on this thing goes up to 10%. Now let's take a possible (and hopefully worst-case scenario). 10% of the US population is about 3.5 million people dead. Add in the numbers of people who can then no longer be treated for the usual killers that modern medicine tends to save.....as those will not be treated when the hospital is full of virus patients...and I think 5 million dead in the US is quite possible.

    Dennis Prager on the radio just today (although he isn't the first to state it) postulated a 30 percent decrease in GDP, which would result in a Second Great Depression and he mentioned how the rich will be unaffected. Except this time we won't have a Second World War to eliminate all foreign competition allowing us to exit that depression. Also, and it may come as a surprise to you, but am I well aware of how the Left has been hoping for a recession to sink the likelihood of a Trump re-election.

    Thus, I am a bit torn on economic result vs. loss of life. My undergraduate degrees are in natural science and biology.....I recall discussing this exact scenario (pandemic) in 2000 in my genetics course.

    Now I tend to expect the worst while I hope for the best.

    Now back to the Ben Shapiro Show....which I paused to reply.
