Between Netflix, Prime, and Hulu, I’ve been watching a lot of zombie movies lately. A lot of zombie movies. Mostly set in the US. Which leads me to my rant.
In the US, there are almost as many guns as there are people.
How can a zombie apocalypse get out of hand so easily? Where are all you gun lovers just waiting to shoot your neighbor? Okay, even allowing for the fact that some of you may be downright ignorant about zombies, it shouldn’t take anyone that long to learn that you have to shoot them in the head to kill them (although Z Nation has jumped the shark a little on this one).
I can accept that many of the big cities could become zombie infested fairly quickly just by the numbers. Although truthfully, shouldn’t there be bands of armed gangbangers to hold the line?
As for the small towns, you folks have no excuse. Most of you all have so many guns you have to store them in a rack in your truck:D (that’s funny, I don’t care who you are).
All of which lead me to do a scientific study of all of two minutes on the internet (very scientific, NOT). Which lead me to some surprising information. It seems that 50% of the guns in the US are owned by 3% of the population. And a mere 25% of the population owns pretty much all the guns. Of course, this is only the official registration. I’m sure there are other guns in play. wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
So the good news is every American out there didn’t let me down, just about 23% of you slackers did. Cuz let’s face it, there are some of us gun owners who are prepared for the zombie apocalypse while the rest of you are just dinner. LOL
Ah well, time to put my imagination away and go to the day job.
Until next time!
