Lin Wood, a supporter of President Donald Trump who has also been filing lawsuits on Trump’s behalf to overturn the election’s results, tweeted on Monday that Trump supporters should stock up on “2nd Amendment supplies,” a reference to firearms and ammunition. Wood’s tweet seemed to predict coming social unrest over the Electoral College casting its ballots to seat President-elect Joe Biden in the White House.
“Better to be safe than sorry,” Woods wrote in his tweet. “Make sure you have PLENTY of water, food, flashlights & batteries, candles, radio, 2nd Amendment supplies, & a plan to meet with leaders of your communities. Remember we only have 1 President at a time. Our leader is @realDonaldTrump, not Biden.”
The supplies Woods listed are commonly associated with preparing for civil unrest or disasters in which people’s utilities, electricity and access to survival essentials are disrupted.
