We have heard from many of you that gun shops have been deemed essential businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks for reaching out on this, we appreciate the support!
The issue is that the DHS states in their document that individual states are free to use their list as guidance. Massachusetts has stripped the part about guns shops out of the list. We're working with State Reps to get this issue addressed but we don't have any news on how long that could take, if it even happens. I just checked the MA list and firearm stores on still not on it. I feel this is an even more clear indication that gun shops are classified as non-essential as Massachusetts is clearly omitting it at this point, from the federal list they based their closures on.
At Tombstone Trading Company, we researched available options and came up with a plan on how to address this issue. We have outlined the process we are going to take on our website on our COVID-19 Sales page. If you are looking to find a reputable place to purchase a firearm during this pandemic, please consider reading that page and decide if it is the right choice for you. Tombstone Trading Company has always worked hard for our customers and hope to be able to help you, even though the ways we have to do it are unorthodox at the least.
We are offering an online meeting tonight where you can ask questions about available guns we have and even pre-order something so once we are able to open, you'll get a priority appointment to come in and get it. You can sign up for that meeting on the COVID-19 Sales page on our website, which is linked above.
Thank you. You really are the best customers we could ask for!
