63: the Risk of Xenophobia, Guns, and Coronavirus
One of the disturbing responses to the COVID-19 pandemic as been xenophobic and racist attacks on members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. Incidents of hate crimes have created an atmosphere of discrimination and fear. As a result, many media outlets have reported on members of the AAPI community purchasing firearms.
