Why don't they just go all the way and call this the Walking Dead Bill?

In a crisis situation or evacuation for natural disasters such as hurricanes and wildfires, people with no criminal record would be allowed to carry a firearm without a permit, under a bill approved Friday by the Florida House of Representatives.

"The bells of liberty are surely ringing throughout Florida today," said Representative Heather Dawes Fitzenhagen, a Fort Myers Republican who sponsored the bill lifting permit requirements for concealed weapons in an emergency declared by the governor or local authorities.

That's just what a Hurricane Katrina-like situation needs: A bunch of gun nuts declaring their own personal martial law and standing their ground all over the fucking place. The bill now goes to the state Senate and may wind up on the governor's desk by the end of this month, Reuters's Bill Cotterell says.
