Florida state senator Dwight Bullard thought that a proposed bill to legalize carrying concealed firearms during disaster evacuations was an incredibly stupid idea. So he proposed an amendment to rename the bill "An act relating to the zombie apocalypse." Both the bill and the amendment failed to pass the state legislature.
If you're serious about killing zombies, you don't want a gun, anyway. You want one of these.
Florida Won't Protect Right to Bear Arms During a Zombie Apocalypse
Sen. Dwight Bullard proposed the "zombie apocalypse" amendment, which unfortunately proposed only a change to the title. Bullard opposed the bill and said this was his way of suggesting that it was unnecessary and in fact a bad idea. "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," he told the Huffington Post. Personally I can think of a lot of instances I would put further down that list, so I'm not sure his argument follows.
