I’ve heard all the arguments for and against guns. There is, however, one glaring omission the pro gun people invariably leave out. This one single reason for owning a gun is, excuse the bad choice of words but I can’t resist, bulletproof. There is no way you can argue against it: zombie apocalypse.
I defy anyone to look me in the eye and tell me they don’t want a gun within reach when they see a zombie coming to eat one of their kids. Put a flesh eating zombie in front of the fiercest gun opponent and I’m fairly certain they’re going to want a bazooka or a machine gun. Sure maybe you can make do with an axe or some knives if you only have one or two zombies but what are you going to do if you have a whole busload of them?
I think the NRA needs to play the zombie card if they really want to make inroads.
You may say, “But Monkling, what are the odds we’ll be faced with zombies? Aren’t they pure fiction?” So you would think but who knows what mutated viruses lurk out there? What happens if a mosquito with West Nile hooks up with another mosquito who’s carrying the Zika virus? Or maybe some mad scientist is experimenting with some long extinct virus he dug up in the Antarctic.
When antibiotics were discovered, we thought we had conquered disease and we were wrong about that. What if we’re wrong about zombies, too? And if we are wrong, yeah, you’re gonna want that high powered gun.
