Gun Crazy Americans Target Zombies

Run - zombies are on their wayOnly in America! From Reuters:

…The Hollywood-inspired zombie craze – featuring blood-soaked ghouls rising from the dead to attack the living – has extended to gun enthusiasts. At the huge NRA exhibition, vendors displayed zombie targets, zombie bullets, zombie paint coating for guns and zombie patches for a shooting jacket.

Firing ranges across the country are offering zombie-themed shooting events, some held as daylight fades for atmosphere, said Brad Ross, a division manager for Law Enforcement Targets, Inc, a maker of zombie targets…

Sales of zombie targets are booming and are expected to grow about 30 percent to a million targets this year, Ross said…

    How do you know which is a zombie and which is the NRA member?

    • Simiantongue

       I’ve heard that zombies hunger for brains. We know NRA members are mostly anti-intellectual. If you’re in doubt just whip out any extra brains you have handy. If it’s a zombie it’ll go for em. If not you’re in the deep south.

        NRA members are so anti-intellectual that they can often discuss District of Columbia v. Heller in great detail.

        • Jin The Ninja

          reciting wikipedia does not count as intellectual discourse.

    • Monkey See Monkey Do

      Im pretty sure that guy in the photo is a NRA member.

  • Concerned

    Read the full story, including the part about the unemployed 23 year old with 19 guns who “gets bored” with regular targets and bought 40 zombie targets at the NRA sale. If he’s that easily bored and immature, maybe he’s not mentally well enough to be out with 19 guns? Just saying.

    • Tired of the nonsense

      That is the WORST pop-psychoanalysis ever.

    How long before Crazy Americans figure out that American politicians are zombies?

      Sorta the way that John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald (maybe), and Sirhan Sirhan (maybe) did?

      Probably not soon enough.

    Gun enthusiasts crave blowing real humans away (think trigger happy cops), but an overwhelming sense of human decency prevents a fuller realization of this impulse.  Zombies provide an easy symbol (target?) for this misanthropic rage.  Zombies are already freakin’ dead right?  Not!!!

  • Ricktatorship

    How long before a mysterious disease appears that causes strange skin lesions, is highly contagious and can slightly impair cognitive function? That is to say one that subconsciously reminds some of zombies. Will such trigger happy people be able refrain from blowing away their sick neighbor?

    • Redacted

      I believe the disease called “Conservatism” already causes impaired cognitive function.

  • Bungle

    We in the business of killing zombies, and business be booming.

  • NotAmerican

    I see the U.S becoming a Somalia like failed state soon, but without the clans, just individuals running around with their guns blazing.  Should be fun to watch, we just have to secure their nukes so they only kill each other.

    really sad that most of including the  writer have all be brainwashed by the mainstream media into believe that you are not capable of responsible firearm ownership. How is it you believe that A cop or federal employee is different or superior to you. The powers that be have taken all of you and have programed you all into accepting being victims and relying on government officials to protect you. The blatant truth is no one is protected by the governemnt or police the only person that is capable of protecting you is you. Firearm ownership is a right and responsibility is what true adults have anti-gun people are simply children that have not learned what responsibility is as an adult.

    I dont care about your slave progressive liberal opinion, I only listen to free men and women not programed owned slaves and self made victims.
