LYNNWOOD, WA – APRIL 02: Tiffany Teasdale, owner of Lynnwood Gun, poses for a photo in front of an empty wall of guns on April 2, 2020 in Lynnwood, Washington. Washington State Governor Jay Inslee did not list gun stores as essential businesses that can stay open in his Stay-at-Home order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). However, Teasdale and some other gun retail shops say they are following orders by President Trump and state Republicans who advise that the firearms industry can remain open. As a result gun and ammo sales have been brisk. Second Amendment gun rights advocacy groups are challenging governor’s orders around the country to remain open. (Photo by Karen Ducey/Getty Images)
