Wonder what country the person who wrote that is from. Some odd use of words made it difficult to read.

According to Ebay, Amazon, and even Attorney General Ken Paxton, raising prices on items to prevent the spread of an infectious disease in the wake of a pandemic is price gouging.

He can still sell it and at least get his money back. Only not on Amazon. Some are selling it on Craigslist.
There still folks overpricing it on Amazon. This guy was picked out of the crowd.

He could go to CL and easily make 1-1/2 to 2 times his investment. That's not gouging IMO.

Okay. According to that, it fits the definition. According to true capitalism, it does not, and I prefer capitalism over government interference. Now, a company can choose and enforce its own policies as it wants to. I’d just rather the government kept its nose out of it.

He tried to take advantage of others in a high demand, low supply environment caused by a pandemic situation, legit or not, no different than others during hurricanes or floods attempting to sell gas at $10 a gallon. Real ingenuity is inventing or capitalizing during non-hardship times; glad they effectively killed his ruse. Good for all consumers. Capitalism is best served in "fair" supply and demand times.

Tennessee Price-Gouging Act of 2002 (Tenn. Code Ann. § 47-18-5101 et seq.)

Tennessee’s price gouging laws make it unlawful for individuals and businesses to charge unreasonable prices for essential goods and services, including gasoline, in direct response to a disaster regardless of whether the emergency occurred in Tennessee or elsewhere. The price gouging law makes it unlawful to charge a price that is grossly in excess of the price charged prior to the emergency.

Great, only a real douche would take extreme advantage of a national emergency situation to advance his/her personal objectives.
