    I think it just needs a change in attitude.  The toys that gun nuts play with are not going protect anyone against reasonable advisory be it a government or zombie attack.  Those who do want to defend against such an attack better learn some physics and chemistry.  Otherwise it is just delusional game.

    The purpose of guns in an urban and suburban situation are to kill and intimidate.  Some people think killing and intimidation is reasonable manner in which to solve or negotiate a situation.   In many cases these are the people who need to own guns.  I believe that such people should be identified as, we say in the south, not quite right, and given help.

    I would argue that these mass killing are not the most shocking, just the most readily available PR for people who are looking for a cause.  What is shocking is the number of children that are murdered every day.  Which is not going to minimized by a ban on guns, but by a ban on the proposition that guns are a good and reasonable way to solve problems.  But ideas can't be banned.

    So this poll tells us what we already know.  Everyone wants to stop these high profile events so we can continue to believe that hate and violence are acceptable.

      Weapons manufacturers and accessory manufacturers were putting lime green biohazard logos on their products for use on zombies.

      That attracts young men (I'd be embarrassed to show up with a zombie designated firearm).

      Stop the stupid advertising.
