A Florida senator introduced an amendment to state Senate Bill 296 on Tuesday that would change the title from “An act related to carrying a concealed weapon or firearm” to “An act relating to the zombie apocalypse.”
The bill, which would eliminate criminal prosecution for carrying concealed firearms during a mandatory evacuation, was first introduced by Sen. Jeff Brandes last fall.
Despite the seemingly humorous nature of the name change, Sen. Dwight Bullard wasn’t joking when he filed for the name change.
“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,” Bullard told the Huffington Post.
“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.”
When he introduced the bill, Brandes said that emergency evacuees would “have enough to worry about without having to cross-check themselves to be certain they’re in technical compliance with concealed weapon transport laws.”
If that was a true zombie apocalypse, I would accuse her of wasting ammo. One shot to the head should be all you need to take down a zombie.
