Oh, Florida! If you were to ever break off from the rest of the Continental United States and sink to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, where would we turn for our wacky-ass news?
A new law has been proposed in Florida, Senate Bill 296, which would allow residents of the Sunshine State to carry concealed weapons without a permit in the event of an emergency (like, say, a hurricane.)
Blah, blah, politics, WHATEVER. The highlight of this story comes from State Senator Dwight Bullard who tried to attach the most outrageously entertaining amendment to any law ever. In his estimation, if residents are allowed to carry concealed weapons sans permit during a hurricane, he thinks they should also be allowed to do so during… wait for it… wait for it… The Zombie Apocalypse. Yup, THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!!!
As it turns out, Dwight staunchly opposes the new law and this was his way of drawing attention to how ridic it is. He offered:
"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… 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."
Good points, sir!!
More than that, it's comforting to know that parts of the country are finally prepping for the end of times!!
