Zombie Hunting? after July you will need a license. Posted:
3/22/10USA ZWN (AP)
In a new bill being rushed through the senate, a license will be required by all professional zombie hunters after July 1st.
According to Senator David E. Schumer, Democrat of New York, who proposed the bill, "This is intended to put a stop to all those amateur zombie hunters who have been capitalizing on the undead epidemic."
Senator Schumer continued, "Many have little or no experience. Not even military training, yet they tout themselves as professionals and charge large sums of money, often with the sole aim of thrill seeking or profiteering."
The bill is coming under fire from some republicans who argue that it is a fundamental right of anyone living in America to defend their land and property. However, Senator Schumer countered that "arming yourself with the latest military hardware and going out seeking confrontation with the undead (often times for financial gain), is not defending. It is hunting, plain and simple"
As expected, The National Rifle Association is heavily lobbying against the bills passing. The bill, ZHB676: The 'Zombie Hunting License initiative, which is expected to pass in July, will require all zombie hunters to apply for a government issued license. A standard background check will follow. This directs the 'Bureau of Criminal Apprehension' to cross check applicants to see whether they are eligible to possess a firearm under state or federal law.The cost of the license will vary from state to state with an average fee of $250.00
Asked for comment, ZWN's resident columnist of 'Zombie Hunter' Captain 'Hawk'' Heath said " Personally I think it's a smart piece of legislation. If it weeds out the weekend warriors and the corrupt then its ultimately a good thing. Citizens needs to realize that this is not like some space mmo or zombie video game, this is real life and should be treated seriously and with the proper licenses."
Since 2006 there have been at least 600 reported cases worldwide of zombie hunter deaths whilst on a commercial 'action'. Unofficial estimates suggest that as many as 3000 zombie hunting groups and associations exist worldwide., most are based in eastern Europe and the asia pacific region.
