I suppose it could have been worse… at least he did not “take care of his own”. That would have been a bit harder to explain to the police.
Well, aside from the fact that she hadn’t “turned” yet.
“described by police as “passionate” about weapons.” Ya think?
The guy in general seems passionate which is probably code for mental illness at this point.
She survived, and thank goodness for that. But any gun-loving psycho who can’t even take down an unarmed woman who has her back turned clearly isn’t ready for the zombie apocalypse anyway.
I hope the victim gets help in leaving this guy.
This one makes me particularly sad on a lot of levels.
good thing they weren’t arguing about Game of Thrones.
Or Star Wars. Can you imagine if he’d shot her in the back with a blaster?
I can imagine the bullshit claim he’d make to argue self-defense…
Pfft. Blasters never kill anybody except Storm Troopers.
If he were a stormtrooper she would have been totally safe
And now there’s a fair chance that he could be a ‘dead man walking’.
Cue gun-nut counter gun-control arguments in 5… 4… 3…
“If guns are outlawed, zombies will eat us all.”
”If guns are outlawed, we have no defense against zombie apologists.”
How dare you, sir. JESUS was a zombie.
Perhaps it was an argument about ballistics.
Betcha it was an argument ’bout Daryll…
