Florida Senate Bill Amended to Include Zombie Apocalypse
If there were a zombie apocalypse in Florida, gun owners would be able to take their weapons with them as they ran screaming from the walking dead, even without a concealed weapons permit, if new legislation is passed.
Senate Bill 296 reportedly would give Florida gun owners the right to carry concealed weapons — without the proper permit — during a state of emergency. A hurricane, for instance.
Democratic Sen. Dwight Bullard, an opponent of the bill, imagined other dire straits when he filed this amendment to the bill late Tuesday: “An act relating to the zombie apocalypse.”
It was Bullard’s way of calling out this bill as “laughable.” A crisis, he told the Huffington Post, is “the last instance in which you want someone who is not a concealed permit holder to carry a weapon.”
