Heh: Actor Nick Searcy wonders why woman on ‘The Walking Dead’ wasn’t safer without a gun

On Sunday night’s episode of “The Walking Dead,” entitled “Prey,” the Governor’s head goon forced Andrea to hand over her gun and ammo. Minor spoiler alert: That didn’t work out so well for Andrea when she left Woodbury and had to battle human and formerly-human monsters with only a knife.

“Justified” co-star Nick Searcy watched the episode and couldn’t help relating Andrea’s situation to our “national conversation” on guns. “I don’t understand,” he joked. “When the woman had her nasty gun taken away from her, she should have been safer!”

Obviously! As we’ve been told, only an “idiot” thinks shooting an attacker prevents an attack and women really can’t be trusted with guns anyway. Instead of trying to bitterly cling to her firearms, she should have perfected the womanly art of menstruating on demand to deter zombies and psychos.

Or does that only work on rapists?

    Where was her government issue hello kitty whistle?

    • southerntragedy

      Whoa, whoa, whoa. Why are you picking on Hello Kitty? Haven’t you heard? She’s gone bad…… 😉

  • JerseyJoe

    Geeze, even Joe Biden would have allowed her a shotgun to go out on her balcony and fire into the air…. that would have scared off those walkers….

  • CitizenEgg

    AMC has The Walking Dead. CSpan has The Talking Dead and the DNC is in charge of The Voting Dead.

    • orrineldredii

      This one of the most suscint statements of today’s voters ever. Make a Poster of this one.

    • C-Ann-C

      LOL, very good; except that AMC does have their own segment after the “Walking Dead” called “Talking Dead” – a talk show about the latest episode; so instead you can have CSpan’s, MSNBC’s, NBC’s, CBS, ABC’s, CNN’s named as the “Thinking Dead” and still keep the DNC’s “Voting Dead”. How’s that? :)

      • omnipresence

        Nope. Thinking implies intelligence.

    You missed the aftercredits scene where she managed to sneak a pop-tart shaped gun into her waistband. The Governor is in for a RUDE surprise next episode. I believe it was strawberry with pink frosting and an extended magazine.

      Nice! Is that the “Hello Kitty” Edition?

  • Rich

    She should have been allowed to have her gun but no hi-capacity clips.

  • http://twitter.com/jimni27 Jimni27

    Yep, the governor did a total gun grab because he fears his townspeople are going to rise up against him. That would never happen in real life, right ?

  • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

    Couldn’t she have vomited or urinated on the zombies, or gone to a Call Box?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002109532283 Jillane Kent

      Someone should arrange an educational outreach and tell the walkers “No, don’t eat people”. That will solve everything.

      … or blown a whistle…, oh, wait…, noises attract zombies. Never mind.

  • NeoKong

    If I lived in a zombie apocalypse I would have so many guns I would need a trailer.
    I would have so many guns I would be stirring my beef stew with a pistol.

    • Patrick Klocek

      If I was in the zombie apocalypse, I would only have a couple guns. I would have so much ammunition, I would need a U-Haul truck just to carry it all around.

  • GaryTheBrave

    She should have posted a Zombie Free Zone sign with another that read, “No Zombies allowed beyond this point.”

    • OwnItObama

      Wish I could have given you a 100 more up twinkles. Awesome comment!!!

    • Erin Cutter

      Too funny!!!

    • dm

      …or just tell the zombies not to bite.

    Some of the funniest comments ever posted! Keep ’em coming people!!!

  • Silenttype78

    Honestly,I have never cared for her character much.

    Andrea should have killed the gov when she had the chance.
    She ended up stuck in a chair in the gov’s nasty little torture room because she refused to see the truth despite the evidence being in her face. Kinda like lib-progs.

    I swear if they kill off Michonne- I will be pissed!

    • http://twitter.com/hmdemeny Heather Demeny

      “Andrea should have killed the gov when she had the chance.”

      She *almost* did but someone stopped her!

      • Silenttype78

        No….not this week.

        She had the chance to take him out when they were alone after sleeping together back during the ending of “I Ain’t a Judas” a few weeks back.

        • Dawn

          Yeah, Carol told her what to do, and then Andrea didn’t do it. Because, you know, she’s dumb.

          • Silenttype78

            I really like Carol :) I tend to think “would I like this person if they were a ‘real life person’?”
            For Carol….yup.

          • dm

            Carol would have killed him weeks ago.

    • brewerandpatriot

      Micchone hasn’t been killed off in the book, she should be safe for a few seasons.

      • Silenttype78

        Good 😉

    • bormanator

      They need to keep it going til end of season cliff-hanger.

    • Karin_A

      Good point about the lib-progs. And I never cared for her character either.

  • DANEgerus

    I believe the approved anti-Rape methodology has been updated from pissing you yourself to joking with your assailant.

  • VerminMcCann

    There wouldn’t be biters at all if not for the NRA and its lobbyists.

    • http://www.black-and-right.com/ IceColdTroll

      LOL, just pathetic, run home and beat off with your tapes off Diane Frankenstein.

      • VerminMcCann

        Look, I know it’s hard to tell a liberal from someone pretending to b a liberal, but please tell me you know that was a joke.

        • b_truit

          Well 7 people thought you were a troll.

          • VerminMcCann

            Well, that’s unfortunate, if it’s true.

          • alvinjh

            I thought you were a troll..has to take back my unlike. I had a hair trigger.

          • VerminMcCann

            Like I said, it’s hard to tell.

          • Jay Stevens

            Some people just do not have a clue, even when faced with not so thinly veiled sarcasm.

    As my dear old Daddy used to say, “Son, you Can’t BEAT a woman that shoots!”

  • CrashFroelich

    I gave my wife a Sooper-Soaker filled with urine for self-defense. She pulled out her cute, little, nickel-plated 38 with the pink grip and smacked me with it.

    • Elke E. Wilhelm


  • Dawn

    She stabbed all the walkers that came across her, and could have avoided being captured by the Governor if she HAD POKED HIS OTHER EYE OUT! Her arm was free! Take his eye! Being dependent on a gun makes people forget their own capabilities.

    • Adino

      Like in Kill Bill (vol 2 I think?) where the 1-eyed female assassin had her other eye poked out by Uma Thurman.

      • Dawn


  • Michael Rice

    I am shocked some lib hasn’t tried to say the guy the thinks teh show is real..

    • alvinjh

      they will

  • Scott Wilson

    The governor is slipping.
    One of the people in that town had a shirt with a picture of a gun on it.
    Why didn’t he make her turn it inside out, or cover it up?
    What kind of town is he running?

  • William Gordon

    That makes me wonder if watches the show, or just started. He may think the Gov. is the S____T.

    • Nick Searcy

      Look up “sarcasm,” dumbass.

  • Scott Wilson

    Anyway. Just fire two warning shots into the sky.
    Zombies leave when you do that, and everything goes back to normal. Like it never happened.

  • alvinjh

    Shotgun through the door?

    • Otter2

      Nope, as a womyn, I’m to fire into the air. Please don’t ask me why — instead ask our VPOTUS. If I was a guy, maybe I could shoot through the door. Biden wasn’t clear on that.

  • Kevin Becham

    I’ll keep my guns thank you. Piss on the government.

  • Erich Soldat

    Apparently, Nick Searcy is very dumb… Actors mostly are vessels that regurgitate other peoples words and thoughts. Some of them are good at it (Oscar nominations) and others less so (daytime dramas). Never listen to an actor’s opinion on anything is my mantra! Why should celebrities’ thoughts on any topic be more important than your own???

    • Patrick Klocek

      Personally, I think the comedian was being sarcastic.

    • Nick Searcy

      Are you really and truly this dumb? You are so thick and humorless that you don’t understand BLATANT sarcasm? Get your stupid ass to http://www.nicksearcy.com/acting-school/ THIS INSTANT, you hopelessly dull buffoon.

  • Stephen J. Smith

    He was making a joke.

    Please tell me this is a joke, right?

    What is it with all the zombie uprising talk? Is this the code name for the parasites that will revolt when Obama’s freebies are scaled back or when they run out?

    • Otter2

      The zombies are all around you; they just aren’t eating yet….

  • Adino

    Since all it takes is a sharp blow to the head (double tap for safety), why not stock up on smooth rocks and slings? You can use the rocks over and over and over. And they’re silent.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Gene-Stephens/1677889547 Gene Stephens

    pretty much everything actors say that isnt written for them is retarded. They are really empty soulless beings in search of meaning in their lives.

    • Nick Searcy

      Look up the word “sarcasm,” DUMBASS.,

  • Ken

    All she would have to do is pee or puke on the walker, right? Or she could simply tell the walker to get away from her.

  • Patrick Klocek

    Based on Andrea’s skill with her weapon in Seasons 1 and 2, I think the comedian was correct. But she is better now.

  • Will Weyant

    She should have used a whislte or wait she was in a safe zone right?? no problem here!!!

  • http://twitter.com/Koolio777 Jose Emanuel Salcedo

    Are you seriously comparing a ‘right’ to THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!? This is one of the few things I hate about republicans…

    • http://www.facebook.com/corey.dennison Corey Dennison

      He was making a point with humor and sarcasm.

  • Erin Cutter

    That has to be one of the dumbest tweets! Me thinks he doesn’t really watch the Walking Dead or he wouldn’t have posed such a stupid question. I remember a country back in WW2, where they took away the guns and over 6 million people died. I guess they weren’t safer either.

    • http://www.facebook.com/corey.dennison Corey Dennison

      I think you missed his sarcasm…

      • Karin_A

        Um yeah. Go back and re-read, Erin

      Look up the word “sarcasm,” dumbass.
