The CDC knows how to prepare you for a Zombie apocalypse, but they can't do **** about Ebola.

Zombies are easy to prepare for, you just double tap them in the head. People get all upset if you start shooting Ebola patients.

Ain't this the truth?

All it would have taken was one round from a .45 and this wouldn't be a problem. Now the government (and the collective society of the people of North America) is spending countless billions of dollars on outbreak prevention to solve what should have been a $0.59 problem.

Now, somewhat ironically, placing too high a value on a human life will cause us all to die.

"But if we could save the life of just one foreign national, it would all be worth it..."

The foreign national is dead - now what? Hindsight is a real bitch.

Where are you getting .45ACP for $0.59/rnd?

I mean, they should at least have a plan for the prevent of the spread of a deadly disease; one that doesn't take into the consideration of the local economies of developing countries.

but instead they jump straight to the apocalypse.

NY town demands permit to own a pistol at all, lol. Autocratic/bureaucratic control creep demonstration in progress. If you facebook like a subversive group like the NRA you might be denied. Another good reason (among many) not to be active on fb.

[Video] 71 Year Old Concealed Carrier Shoots and Kills Man Who Assaulted His Wife

Quote:
Around 7:20 p.m. on Oct. 28, police were called to the Aldi Grocery Store at 3128 Forest Lane. While a husband and wife were leaving the store, a 36-year-old man approached them and grabbed a necklace off the woman’s neck.
Police say the suspect then reportedly knocked the woman to the ground and attempted to rob her. The woman’s husband pulled out his concealed handgun and fired several shots, hitting the suspect as he was trying to get away in a vehicle.

in DC, you have to have a special need to carry a gun, even though the courts struck down the anti-gun laws:

DC Police Employee on Concealed Carry: "The Second Amendment Was Written For When The British Were Coming" - Katie Pavlich

Things you need to carry in DC:
16 hours of classroom training (classes are not in session--they require a special certified class, but there no such classes in exsistence)
2 hours at the range
British envasion

It's pissing others off:

Federal judge considers contempt charge against D.C. over gun laws - Washington Times

Quote:
A federal judge is weighing a request to hold the District in contempt of court for enacting new gun laws that are so restrictive as to be out of compliance with his order to allow for firearms to be carried publicly in the city.

During a hearing Thursday, U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. asked the city and the plaintiffs fighting the regulations for additional filings on whether the city should be considered in contempt of his order that officials develop a licensing scheme “consistent with constitutional standards enabling people to exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms.”

...

Judge Scullin asked the lawyers for the District on Thursday whether they had any statistics to show that restricting gun-carry to only people who can demonstrate a special need would enhance public safety.

Assistant Attorney General Andrew Saindon said he did not have any such statistics. He argued that, by establishing a licensing scheme, the city was complying with the judge’s orders.

The District has appealed the ruling and said any challenge to the recently passed regulations should be made through a separate lawsuit, but Judge Scullin indicated he retains the right to determine whether the new laws are compliant with his previous ruling.

The District is required to submit additional arguments to the court by Dec. 4 and Mr. Gura is required to respond by Dec. 11.

In the meantime, gun owners’ progress in obtaining concealed carry permits has been slow moving. Although gun owners were able to begin the application process Oct. 22, no permits have been issued, according to Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Lt. Sean Conboy.

That quote above is a little misleading. She was a protester on previous days and she bought the gun to be ready to be a part of the riots.

Picture of the victim arguing with the police during a prior day's protest:


Darwin wins. And we win, frankly.
