Walking Dead WTF by Robert Farago | Apr 05, 2016 | 62 comments facebook twitter linkedin email Is this pro-gun? Anti-gun? Or just plain stupid. In any case, I’m glad that the zombie gun marketing trend is dead. You? comments ptrog says: April 5, 2016 at 17:01 love the zombie genre, HATE all this zombie marketing crap. Reply BDub says: April 5, 2016 at 17:08 0:39 – good way to put one through your face. Reply Eric in Oregon says: April 5, 2016 at 17:10 Is the zombie marketing stuff over? I just saw a (otherwise) rather nice Remington shottie in zombie green at a Sportsman’s Warehouse… Reply billy-bob says: April 5, 2016 at 17:17 WTF indeed. Reply Jay in Florida says: April 5, 2016 at 17:20 I saw it as anti gun. The guy looks like a fool. But more importantly. It could to some perpetuate the myth that you can order a handgun online and have it delivered to your door. Yes its a simple thing. But its also the mindless Zombie way. A lot of sheeple think you can buy a gun this way. After all if its on the interwebs its true isn’t it. Very bad thing to have shown being totally false. As Zombies are 101% real. Reply Null says: April 5, 2016 at 19:07 I can buy guns online and have them shipped to my door. It’s just illegal to do so and criminals usually don’t have the best or cheapest selection anyways. Reply Tommycat says: April 5, 2016 at 21:12 Actually it’s perfectly legal, provided you have gotten your FFL. Reply Jody says: April 5, 2016 at 17:22 Honestly if it gets more people into the shooting sports who otherwise would not have I think its great. Hopefully the appreciation for guns stays after the Zombie shine wears off Reply CarlosT says: April 5, 2016 at 17:23 I stopped caring about the Walking Dead after they drove out of the CDC parking lot without picking up any of the guns or ammo that were literally carpeting the place. Sure they’d been sitting out, but scoop up a dozen M4s and M9s each and you should be able to cobble together two or three functioning weapons of each type. Maybe you get lucky and most of them are working. Also pick up as much 5.56 and 9mm as you can possibly carry. You’re in the middle of the zombie frickin’ apocalypse. You just found a guns and ammo smorgasbord. Load up with two pretty darn useful weapons and plenty of ammo for them. Reply NikcaP says: April 5, 2016 at 19:08 I thought that too… I was like dude stop and grab those 50 cal. On the humvee… I figured 1 round could at the very least incapacitate 12 zombies when shot thru a horde (or go thru 1 tank and hit the driver)… Reply slicer87 says: April 5, 2016 at 22:34 They have picked up full autos in the later seasons, riot gear from zombie prison guards, etc. In the latest season they grabbed a RPG, from a zombie soldier which they later used to blow up a gang of bikers who attacked them. Besides zombies they are now running into various human marauders and despots. They are also trying to setup a shop to manufacture bullets. Reply Rob says: April 6, 2016 at 07:18 I’ve commented before how TWD cast members have “evolved” from the hunting sort of weapons in the early episodes to primarily military grade full autos. Well, except for Rick’s Python or Anaconda. Which is it? That show has driven the price of Colt’s snake guns through the roof. Eric in Oregon says: April 6, 2016 at 11:08 It’s a Python, Anacondas have a ‘droopy’ hammer profile. marco says: April 5, 2016 at 17:24 Anti. He trained with guns, but when it was go time he peed himself and couldn’t hit targets. Ergo, buying guns is useless; and only the appearance of a rainbow ninja can save you. Enforced inability because admitting the added ability and protection a gun gives you isn’t very funny- it’s logical and practical. Ergo, the only way to legitimately attack guns is that they DON’T work to protect you, and “reasonable” “normal” people even WITH training will freeze up and fail. Reply california richard says: April 6, 2016 at 04:05 I gotta be honest here…. I’d probably pee my pants too if a horde of anything came at me wanting to eat my brains….. Read “On Combat”. Its rather common. I think the guy who made this is pro gun for himself, anti gun for others, and looks down on those whom he views as inferior……. Its just stupid in the most selfish of ways. Reply DMD says: April 5, 2016 at 17:33 Totally anti-gun—perpetuates the mail order internet gun myth–and further tries to prove that love conquers all —almost as stupid and unbelievable as your recently posted “take action” vid from that clueless reform temple (btw-I am a 75 yr old Shomer Shabbat MOT NRA life member–with no tolerance for this typical reform MOT pacifist baloney!!) דמד Reply Rick the Bear says: April 5, 2016 at 19:27 I agree with you. BTW, “…I am a 75 yr old Shomer Shabbat MOT NRA life member–with no tolerance for this typical reform MOT pacifist baloney” I’m not very Shomer, but I’m with you on the rest!! Reply Danny Griffin says: April 5, 2016 at 17:37 So a homosexual ninja is the answer? Reply jwm says: April 5, 2016 at 18:06 Release the gay. Reply notalima says: April 6, 2016 at 09:51 9 out of 10 progressives agree 😉 Reply Rusty Chains says: April 5, 2016 at 17:39 The stupid Hornady Zombie ammo with the green rubber plug in the hollow point vs the red one on the Critical Defense version of the same thing….dumb. I would have bought some as practice ammo on close out if I could have gotten it for half price, otherwise, no. Can’t believe any one would actually spend money on a Zombie version of anything. How is anything that moves as slow as a Walking Dead zombie anywhere near as dangerous as a Democrat with a voter registration card? Reply Jeff the Griz says: April 5, 2016 at 22:30 In March 2013 that zombie ammo was the only type of 9m and .223 on the shelf at a few retailers, bought a few just because it was available. After it went clearance I bought some more 9mm to test new carry guns for functioning with critical defense. Reply Mikial says: April 5, 2016 at 22:57 And . . . ? Did it work good? I would imagine it did. All the green boxes, etc., were just a marketing ploy. My wife got me a “zombie killer” knife for Christmas a couple of years ago that’s actually a pretty good knife . . it just had a green handle., Big deal. Reply Geoff PR says: April 5, 2016 at 22:37 “The stupid Hornady Zombie ammo with the green rubber plug in the hollow point vs the red one on the Critical Defense version of the same thing….dumb.” Buy a box of each, mix ’em together, now you have red-green X-Mas ammunition stocking-stuffers!!! Reply meccastreisand says: April 6, 2016 at 10:13 That’s BRILLIANT! Now I can be festive and well prepared. They’ll be best in a revolver so the bad guy can see the alternating tip colors and decide to be festive and peaceful or to take the rest of their life off. Reply ActionPhysicalMan says: April 5, 2016 at 17:39 Dammit, am I on drugs again?! Reply mas says: April 5, 2016 at 17:40 If you have caught up with your episodes, you should know having cartridges for the guns you have is much more important than having more guns. Reply Bob316 says: April 5, 2016 at 17:42 Drive through Portland Oregon on a Friday night, and you will swear that the zombie apocalypse is real and has already taken the city. 🙂 Seriously, here is a interesting thought exercise. Imagine, if you will, the same scenario, but replace the zombies with liberal urban dwellers 3 days after a natural disaster that completely stopped the food supply to the city like what happened in New Orleans. Imagine after 5 days or 10 days? Sorry, no walking dead, but probably just as frightening. Reply Vhyrus says: April 5, 2016 at 19:22 Considerably scarier, since zombies aren’t able to work together, drive cars, or use firearms. Reply slicer87 says: April 5, 2016 at 23:05 On the show, the other living humans are more dangerous than the zombies to the heros. They have ran into crazy despots, marauders, gangs, and cannibals. Reply notalima says: April 6, 2016 at 09:55 You’ve just hit on exactly the discussion of ‘little zombies v. big zombies’. “Zombies” in terms of TEOTWAWKI can be looters, rioters, the golden horde, etc. Same mindset: Thoughtless death, destruction, and consumption. Reply JJVP says: April 5, 2016 at 17:50 3 minutes of my life I will never get bsck. No guns, rainbow ninja? Nothing pro -gun about whatever that was. Reply Timmy! says: April 5, 2016 at 17:58 I’m going with “Anti-gun” AND “Just plain stupid” Reply ThomasR says: April 5, 2016 at 17:58 Nice compendium of the anti-freedom, government worshiping perspective of those that have rejected being a mature responsible adult. Many of the liberal/progressives and statist types really believe that “good thoughts” and defenselessness will keep one safe from being targeted by a human presdator. That carrying a gun will only do two things, it will either turn a law abiding citizen into a homicidal maniac that will shoot someone for cutting them off in traffic, or it will draw a confrontation to you because you are being “paranoid and fearful” in carrying a gun; but either way, if you do end up shooting a gun at another person for whatever reason,; you will inevitably shoot an innocent bystander, or a child rather than the bad guy. Or just pee your pants, panic and run in circles. They really believe this, really. So in the end, for most of those that have chosen to be unarmed subjects, there is no reasoning or logic that can change this type of delusion and denial. So this is why I don’t allow the irrational fears of emotionally arrested, over grown children determine whether I OC a firearm in public. If I did, I would be saying that the beliefs of those that have chosen to be powerless, helpless and defenseless; that have chosen to be dependant on the government for their protection: is more important than being a free and responsible adult. Hmmm, no; that is not happening. Reply Katy says: April 5, 2016 at 18:20 A) that was strange. Very strange 2) poor form using a Henry. Or maybe good form? A friend pointed me in their general direction and its looking like that will be my next purchase. #) I spy Banana Bay Tactical in Austin assisted with this production. I’m not sure why, but at least the Austin helps the video make more sense. Reply Jervis says: April 5, 2016 at 18:26 1:19 What AR is that? Reply Drew says: April 5, 2016 at 18:28 Love zombies, never cared for the zombie themed shooting stuff but it never bothered me. If anything it brings in new shooters Reply Lee says: April 5, 2016 at 18:39 Its not anti gun or pro gun. Its just stupid. Reply Mikial says: April 5, 2016 at 19:06 Um . . . . . at least 20 IQ points lost just by watching this one. I agree . . . WTF? Reply Tom in Oregon says: April 5, 2016 at 19:52 I just lost 3 minutes of my life and a couple million brain cells… Reply Bob in Calif says: April 5, 2016 at 19:53 It’s easy to spot the zombies in most urban areas. They’re the ones with their faces buried in their cell phones and wearing earbuds paying absolutely no attention to anything around them. As long as they keep doing that, the bad guys will never want for more victims. Reply Mikial says: April 5, 2016 at 20:30 So true! It’s especially bad in DC. Reply D. Hobbs says: April 5, 2016 at 20:02 It’s amazingly anti gun. How is that even up for debate? How many tropes can we spot? 1. Gun owners are paranoid. 2. Mail order gun shipment. 3. Gun owners are fat, slovenly wannabes. 4. “Train all you want, you’ll just panic when you’ll actually need it.” 5. Guns are a gateway drug to antisocial behavior. All that combined with the appearance of the Gay Glitter Ninja, and turning the Ruger M1911 into confetti, and it’s a wonder this isn’t filed under “Anti Gun Agitprop of the day”. Reply Mikial says: April 5, 2016 at 20:32 Agree 100% Reply Winterborne says: April 5, 2016 at 20:02 Holy crap on a cracker. Really? Effing idiotic. And anti gun. Hoeven I hope both “the guy” and “Christina” were eaten by the zombies. Slowly. Of course if they do eat them, well, that much stupid could be bad for the zombies. Hope someone does a negative radius turn on the . . . I can’t come up with a bad enough adjective . . . “rainbow ninja” with an M1 Abrams. Showed this to a gay friend of mine and he was insulted and pissed off. You want zombies? Go read John Ringo’s “Black Tide Rising” series. I hate the whole moronic zombie craze thing, but I love John’s books. Actually makes sense! And the man knows his guns at least. Reply AnhydrousWater says: April 5, 2016 at 20:07 I wanted to say neither anti or pro during the first minute, just a horribly made comedy sketch. Then it went to anti in my opinion with the whole it turning into an obsession and his girl leaving him, But then for a second it seemed to go back to pro since shit actually hit the fan and zombies really came!!!! Then it went back to anti gun since he couldn’t manage to hit a zombie 2 feet in front of him, ya know, portraying an armed citizen as stupid and useless and more likely to cause harm. Then some gay ninja came out of no where, killed zombies and said no guns. Sooooooo yea. Reply DerryM says: April 5, 2016 at 20:11 I knew it was anti-gun when they had the “Wannabe Operator” main character eating an apple when he sees the Zombie outbreak. He should have been eating freshly grilled Bratwursts and wiping the grease out if his beard with a shop towel. Reply Mikial says: April 5, 2016 at 20:34 Too true! The wife and i grilling bratwurst tomorrow, as a matter of fact. 😉 Reply DerryM says: April 5, 2016 at 21:20 You’ve got me thinking I’ll be making a trip to the Deutsch-Markt tomorrow. Enjoy! Reply Mikial says: April 5, 2016 at 21:56 Look up ‘German Deli’ on-line. They ship authentic German food anywhere in the US in coolers. Great stuff! DerryM says: April 5, 2016 at 22:24 Will do! Thanks! There are a couple of good German Markets in my area. I have a few friends whose parents immigrated from Germany after WWII and the local markets are “Approved” by their families. Mikial says: April 5, 2016 at 23:01 My wife is from Austria, so if she thinks it’s good, I would imagine it is. Enjoy! DerryM says: April 5, 2016 at 23:18 Thanks! Looked at German-Deli website. Will be doing some shopping there for sure! Tommycat says: April 5, 2016 at 21:22 My woman doesn’t like Bratwurst. She loves guns, and even pays for guns for me, so I can overlook never being able to have brats for dinner… except at friends houses… Reply DerryM says: April 5, 2016 at 21:32 Sad for you on the one had, but sounds like a good deal in the long run… Hope you have lots of friends who give you Brat-fixes! We usually have dark beer, brown mustard, big piles of sauerkraut, fried red potatoes and onion and heavy brown bread with butter. Great for the palate, but maybe not so good for the arteries..oh well. Does she just not like sausages, or particularly not like Bratwurst? Reply Ross says: April 5, 2016 at 20:18 Fargo that is 3 minutes of my life I’m never getting back! Reply Mortdecai says: April 5, 2016 at 20:25 I would like to see how well the gay ninja would fair in Baltimore at 2:30 in the morning on a Saturday night. He might just want the gun back. Reply MiniMe says: April 5, 2016 at 21:03 “I’m glad that the zombie gun marketing trend is dead.” Yes indeed. Reply UncleK says: April 5, 2016 at 21:32 The homo ninja only showed up after the golden shower attracted him. Reply JMorton says: April 5, 2016 at 23:51 I think this went over your heads. It lampoons the liberal argument that you don’t need guns. As in, the liberal argument is as realistic as a rainbow ninja saving your rear one day. If those producing this film were really antigun, they wouldn’t have obtained real guns to film. To repeat: it demonstrates the liberal fantasy that “even if you train with guns, you’ll be ineffective when it comes time to use them, hence you must rely on someone else to save you.” In this case, the rainbow ninja comes to save the guy, which we know is silly, hence the liberal argument is silly. So this film is pro gun. Reply DerryM says: April 6, 2016 at 08:15 Well THAT settles for me why I heard that “whoosh!” noise at the end of the video. Seriously, I think you are right. Also explains why they had the main character mail ordering all kinds of guns (lampooning the liberal propaganda that “anyone” can buy guns on the internet and have them delivered to their front door). I defer to your perspicacity on this matter, JMorton. Great insight! Thanks! Reply Chris T from KY says: April 8, 2016 at 12:41 Ok? A walking dead fan short movie. Check out the star trek fan shows on you tube. Some are better than others. Reply Write a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
