If there was one place on this godforsaken continent that would already be taking action against the coming zombie apocalypse, of course it would be Florida. The state is considering a concealed carry bill during an official state of emergency, but one state legislator wants to change the bill so it takes the possibility of a zombie apocalypse into consideration.
Here is the totality of the change being proposed by Democratic state senator Dwight Bullard: the bill’s name will be changed from “An act relating to carrying a concealed weapon or a concealed firearm” to “An act relating to the zombie apocalypse.”
Why? Because as Bullard explains, he’s trying to draw attention to the ridiculousness of the original bill:
“For me, as laughable as the amendment might seem, it’s equally laughable that people who haven’t gone through the proper training, the background check, the license to carry — we’re saying because of a hurricane or flooding or sinkhole, these individuals have gone from gun owners to concealed carry permit holders.”
But let’s face it, in the case of a zombie apocalypse, there will probably be no one left to enforce the gun laws.
