Liberal and left-leaning Americans are stocking up on firearms in response to President-elect Donald Trump taking over the White House on Friday, reported Vacativ.
A notable example is 31-year-old Democrat Colin Waugh from Independence, Missouri. Waugh purchased a gun nearly four weeks before the November election, despite never owning one before.
“I kept asking myself, do I want to live under tyranny?’” said the Bernie Sanders supporter, and later on a Hillary Clinton endorser. “The answer was absolutely not.”
“We’re tired of being perceived as wusses who won’t survive when shit hits the fan,” said one woman named Stacy. The Texas Democrat spoke with Vocativ in anonymity, but revealed that she and her friends had begun “prepping” for Trump’s presidency. “I, for one, don’t like to be thought of as some precious snowflake.”
While liberals are “doomsday prepping” now that Trump will enter the Oval Office, there have been notable times in the past when conservatives also prepped for the Obama years.
“It’s the nature of the political beast,” realtor Kevin O’Brien told Vocativ. O’Brien specializes in off-the-grid properties in eastern Tennessee for those who believe they need to prepare for an upcoming apocalypse. “Obama had many on the right really wound up. Now it’s the left’s turn.”
