Florida Adds Zombie Apocalypse Amendment To Bill, Actually Makes Sense


Florida Senator Dwight Bullard decided to make a rather funny point when he proposed an “undead” update to a bill that had been introduced back in 2010. The bill originally stated that Florida gun owners without the proper permits can carry concealed firearms during a state of emergency—an idea, as pointed out by the Huffington Post, that’s supported by the National Rifle Association but opposed by the Florida Sheriff’s Association. Senator Bullard added a little extra detail in order to clarify what constituted an emergency:

In other words, there’s only one situation that calls for that sort of untrained gun-wielding: an overwhelming attack by the undead.

Senator Bullard explained further:

“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. I’d argue a crisis is probably the last instance in which you want someone who is not a concealed permit holder to carry a weapon.”
