“Zombies, what are you going to do with them? Just keep chopping them up, shooting at them, shooting at them” – Martin Scorsese
This is actually a serious legislation in the United States, in a smaller State Representatives Emanuel Chris Welch, Grant Wehrli and Tim Butler. All of them must really fear ‘the Walking Dead’ and ‘the Night of the Living Dead’. Certain Tim Burton or other film makers must wonder what the Representatives in Illinois have been watching the last few months. Surely they might fear what happening in the Washington D.C. as the first of month of President Trump has made the American legislature problematic. Also with added protest and other created issues, the Illinois Republicans want to be prepared for the worst case scenario.
Here are parts of the House Resolution from yesterday:
“WHEREAS, If the citizens of Illinois are prepared for zombies, than they are prepared for any natural disaster; while a Zombie Apocalypse may never happen, the preparation for such an event is the same as for any natural disaster; and” (…) “WHEREAS, Disasters disrupt hundreds of thousands of lives every year and can have lasting effects, both to people and property” (HR0030, 2017).
So the state that has their assembly and capitol in Springfield, are afraid that the violence and uncertainty of a coming disaster. That the whole state has to prepare them for a coming Zombie Apocalypse, certainly the people of Chicago must be ready. Also because of this the representative has further stated:
“RESOLVED, BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE ONE HUNDREDTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS, that all Illinois residents are encouraged to participate in preparing for a Zombie Apocalypse, and have a plan that includes, signing up for local texts and weather alerts, developing emergency communications for the household, collecting significant documents and storing them in a safe place, and gathering emergency supplies” (…) “RESOLVED, That we designate October 2017 as “Zombie Preparedness Month” in the State of Illinois, and urge all Illinoisans to educate themselves about natural disasters and take steps to create a stockpile of food, water, and other emergency supplies that can last up to 72 hours” (HR0030, 2017).
So the State Representatives wants the citizens to prepare for ‘Shaun of the Dead’ get enough weapons, food and water inside their homes, enough canned food and make sure they can see the different between the living dead and the ones that still ordinary human. Therefore the ones on vials and looking like just barely living in the suburbs or public housing in Chicago might be reported to the Police as they could become Zombies without the State Officials and Law Enforcement knowing. The State Representatives should also create laws to secure the stocks of food and quality of water, as the damage it could have if the Zombies seems walk silently or disorderly from Lincoln Park towards Williams Boulevard. We never know what they might be up too.
What we certainly know that Wall-Mart and other bigger stores might get a big buy in October of canned goods, water-barrels and other needed products for the Zombies arriving close to Bloomington or even Rockford for that matter. Certainly even Colts or 380s will be a top seller in the closest guns-and-ammo shops in Champaign. What we don’t know if the Zombies will prefer the Route 72 through the state or the route 57. However, weapons and food must be necessary for the Illinoisans to buy, as they want to secure themselves and their grandkids. Peace.
