Prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse

1 Comment

You hate to admit it, but there’s always the chance of a zombie apocalypse. Be prepared by considering these ten weapons that shouldn’t be legal, but are. From http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/Media/Slideshow/2013/03/28/10-Weapons-You-Wont-Believe-Are-Legal


Flame Thrower
If you feel the need to throw some fire around, you are legally allowed to purchase a flamethrower under federal law, and 40 states have no laws against owning the weapon. Though it’s restricted in some states, such as California, unlicensed possession is only considered a misdemeanor. Also good for getting rid of unwanted foliage.


There’s nothing “mini” about this gun, which can fire 2,000 to 6,000 rounds per minute or 166 bullets per second. The only reason these bad boys are legal is if the weapon was manufactured and registered before May 19th, 1986, when the machine gun ban went into effect. Miniguns are pretty rare, but when they do go up for sale, they cost around $400,000. At 6,000 rounds per minute, I’d think the ammo quickly costs more than the weapon.


Katanas are Japanese style swords with blades around 2 feet in length, and are legal in the U.S. A hand -crafted blade can put you back around $500. No reloading necessary. Uma Thurman comes separately.


Black powder cannons are legal and do not even need to be registered with the government. To purchase black powder, you need to buy it directly from a licensed explosive dealer. Black powder federal purchase is limited to 50 pounds, but varies by state. Cannons can be purchased online for around $3,000. Ya gotta like a weapon you can fire without actually seeing the target.


Legality of the crossbow varies by state, with some states requiring a license. It’s easy to purchase a crossbow online, however, and they typically cost around $500.


Grenade Launchers
While a grenade launcher is perfectly legal, good luck finding any grenades to launch since grenades remain illegal in the U.S. A launcher will set you back around $3,000, and you’ll need to register the weapon with the Federal government. Launchers are legal, but grenades are not!? Sounds like a bait and switch scheme…


Nunchucks, also called nunchaku in Japanese, are federally legal but banned in certain states such as New York, Arizona, California, and Massachusetts — though California has made exceptions for professional martial arts schools and practitioners. Nunchucks can be purchased online for around $50.


Umbrella Sword
Umbrella swords are legal in all states except California, Massachusetts, and New York. Blades are around 15 inches in length, and the umbrella costs about $30 to purchase online. Lethal, practical, AND stylish!


These underwater weapons are typically used to hunt fish. They remain legal in the U.S., and cost around $200 to purchase online. Effective against underwater zombies, but not British secret agents.


Chain Whip
A chain whip is a weapon used in some Chinese martial arts styles to disarm their opponent by wrapping the chain around them or their weapon. They are legal to own in the U.S. and can be purchased online. Seriously? What’s wrong with you?
