An Act Relating to the Zombie Apocalypse

FLzombie Apocalypse Senator Dwight Bullard is having fun with his job, maybe a little to much fun! The Tallahassee Senator introduced an amendment to state senate bill 296 that would change the title from “An act related to carrying a concealed weapon or firearm” to “An act relating to the Zombie Apocalypse.

Why would we care about a FL Senator poking fun at a bill? The bill that was proposed (Senate Bill 296) would eliminate criminal prosecution for carrying concealed firearms during a mandatory evacuation and during times when a state of emergency is enacted.

Hurricane Katrina

We need only look back to 2005 when Hurricane Katrina wiped out a good portion of the southern United States and the riots that ensued to know that this bill is of a very serious nature. FL Senator Dwight Bullard seems to have forgotten what happens when there is no food, clean water and rescue on the way. Read more about the riots here.

Gun Confiscations

Don’t get me started on the illegal gun confiscations that were preformed during Hurricane Katrina leaving home owners and business owners defenseless and in grave danger of the riots that destroyed many communities and businesses. Rape, murder, theft and larceny is what the people of Georgia faced during these trying times and a little less worry about criminal prosecution for carrying concealed firearms during a mandatory evacuation would not have hurt one bit.

Zombie Apocalypse No Laughing Matter riots-in-the-street

“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.

This is no laughing matter to me, nor was it when first introduced by Sen. Jeff Brandes last fall when she proposed Senate Bill 296. Sen. Jeff Beandes gets it from an everyday citizens point of view stating emergency evacuees “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 there is a Zombie Apocalypse ill be carrying my weapons!

Sticking Together

Members of the community need to stick behind bills like FL Senate Bill 296 and others. This bill died and was pushed off the calendar of the FL Senate because of this joking publicity stunt. I For one would like to see more bills like this placed before our nation’s capital for congressional approval. The right to defend one’s self is a God given right as well as a constitutional one. Zombie Apocalypse or not!
