lets hope not
I remember when they enacted Martial Law during Katrina and knocked down an elderly woman to take the gun out of her house. Does anyone else see this happening during the Coronavirus scare?
I live in a Liberal state and extremely Liberal city and county and I have a fairly large gun collection. Part of it is my hobby and a big part of it is an investment for retirement. Not really looking forward to the Gestapo throwing around some pristine 90 year old Colts and S&W's in their property room. I'm seriously thinking about getting pro active and moving them to a friend's house in a rural more conservative county.
What are your thoughts?

I thought that was settled by a lawsuit.
Should be "well known" not to touchy guns.
The ca'jun navy was started because of Katrina! Two of the guys from work took off to Nu Orleans to help save the people in the Ninth Ward! Well when the 13% started shooting at them they turned tale and left! Bullet holes in a aluminum hull makes you turn around fast! Now these two guys had their guns taken away by the local LEO's!
That's the truth and nothing but the truth!

Now, Katrina was a huge natural disaster. The local and state governments ceased to exist for almost a week, leaving people making decisions the best they could. Some were poor decisions made by cops, but they were also victims and were doing the best they could.
I would not worry about this Corona virus. So have a Corona beer and kick back. Life will get back to the normal freak show soon enough.

Better yet, drain the entire pool!
I briefly had thought of this as well, especially since the rush on firearms in CA this last week. All it would take is one incident in a state such a CA and one could surmise that the weeds could begin to tumble. However, I hope not!
I thought in LA post Katrina the laws changed to make it illegal to confiscate privately owned firearms because of what happened with rogue police. The Looney Liberals wanted to pass a law that would allow them to confiscate ANYTHING they deemed was essential for government to stabilize chaos. That could mean food , tools, guns, ammo etc. If they tried to do that to me in an emergency state to take away food and survival gear meant for my family they would be in for a fire fight. They will have to earn it the hard way. There is no reason for Gubberment to confiscate anything from a private citizen who is not looting or running amok even if they declare Martial Law. As far as me and my neighbors are concerned Martial Law only means anything goes and that we don't trust anyone.
There was and is, the threat of a deep ban in here in Virginia, the arranged plan was to move the guns and safe to friend's house who lives near and across the state line in West Virginia. Because of this planned to leave the state upon retirement, which was not the original plan.
