Does the CDC suggest a shotgun or a chain saw?

If I read it correctly, both. . .preferably a shotgun with a picatinny rail so you can mount the chainsaw under the barrel(s).

TFHO (tin foil hat on) why is the government trying to encourage the public to prepare? Just in case, or are they engineering something? In either case, just do it.

That's sure "raising the bar" on tactical AR's!

Don't let the BATF see that full-auto choke and 'under 16" bar'... They'll want to tax it.

I saw no mention of a shotgun in the original post, no mention of any kind of firearm, which as we all know, are mandatory in any kind of undead rebirth (? ? ? ?).

She did mention, though, and I point this out just in passing, that we should all have enough supplies for us to hold out until "they" (.gov) can get us to a "shelter".

I just saw this on Fox News.  They showed a video of zombies doing the Thriller dance.

Its about time Zombies got their due. They get such a bad rap in the movies. now we will finally be able to get their opinion and the voice heard on national TV. Stand up for the rights of Zombies!
