My table at the gun show was next to an end cap display of a tee-shirt company called The Passionate Patriot of Fort Walton Beach FL. This headline, The Walking Dead’ Draws Record 16.1 Million Viewers, reminds me of a tee shirt suggestion I made.

They are nothing but walking appetites for other people's lives.
They kill unthinkingly and are not bothered by the carnage.
They hate people with firearms.
