Been watching several Zombie/Infected movies the past few weeks and I honestly have to say that even if you assume that such a Virus/disease/radiation could actually happen, one must consider the following. . - At LEAST 250 million firearms in private hands in the USA - At Least 50 million homes with guns - 12 Billion of round of ammo were sold just last year alone - (7 Billion in 2008) I think the original movie, Night of the Living Dead (1968) had it right. The Zombie threat was bad for a few days, and then all the rifles came out of the closets; people formed "hunting" groups, and started "cleaning up" the town. Areas like NYC and Chicago could get hit really hard due to decades of severe gun laws that limit firearms ownership. Even in those places there are a lot of people who own hunting rifles and shotguns. Though it seems like political brainwashing has done some damage and even long gun ownership has declined, in those areas. Also, it is harder to buy ammo in Chicago and NYC that in use to be. . (I don't think there is a single gun shop left inside the city limits of Chicago) . I guess that's why a lot of the new Zombie fiction (written stories) have the infection starting in places like China. . High density population and zero firearm ownership, One other negative I see is that while many people in the USA own guns, there are a LOT of gun owners who don't stock very much ammo. I've seen it many time where someone has firearms, but only has a half box of ammo. Hopefully that's changed some this past year. Though I doubt it. I'm guessing that 10-15% of the gun owners bought 80%-90% of those 12 Billion rounds. In a real Zombie apocalypse, I'd be handing out boxes of ammo to anyone who needed it. I'd hope that most people with significant stashes would do the same.
