Zombies A Factor In Gun Sales Increase, Gun Rights Advocate Says

by The Huffington Post  |  published on December 4, 2012


It’s not just President Obama’s re-election that’s lead to a spike in gun sales. The living dead are also providing a reason to stock up on firearms and ammo.

My Northwest.com reports that, according to FBI data, background checks for guns rose 20 percent on Black Friday from the same day last year. According to KIRO, one gun rights advocate said part of the reason for the increase is zombies.

“A lot of people appear to be really enthralled by this,” Dave Workman said. “I’ve seen lines of zombie targets, I know one or two ammunition companies have introduced boxes, lines of cartridges they called zombie cartridges, shotgun shells and rifle shells.”

The zombie-themed merchandise has ushered in a new generation of gun shooters, according to Workman.

Of course, the popularity of TV’s “Walking Dead,” heralds the coming of a zombie apocalypse for which we must prepare.

Those sentiments were echoed earlier this year by Texas gun purveyor Cris Parsons in an interview with ABC News.
