After a miserable year of isolation, the United States is finally showing signs of a possible return to normalcy. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recently issued loosened guidelines on the resumption of Americans’ favorite pastime: stocking up on guns and murdering other Americans.

Updated Information for Shooters

  • Fully-vaccinated shooters are less likely to get and spread COVID-19.
  • People who are fully vaccinated with an FDA-authorized vaccine can shoot safely within the United States:
    • Fully-vaccinated shooters do not need to get tested before or after shooting unless the proposed site of the shooting requires it
    • Fully-vaccinated shooters do not need to self-quarantine
  • Fully-vaccinated shooters should still follow CDC’s recommendations for shooting safely, including:
    • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth while unleashing those shells
    • Stay 6 feet from others and avoid crowds (AR-15 works best to maintain social distancing)
    • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer, to remove gunpowder residue

As to victims, the CDC declined to issue any restrictions with respect to vaccinations, masking, or social distancing, other than, “thoughts and prayers.”
