Another "Movie Plot" Threat
"Study Reveals Pittsburgh Unprepared for Full-Scale Zombie Attack":
A zombie-preparedness study, commissioned by Pittsburgh Mayor Tom Murphy and released Monday, indicates that the city could easily succumb to a devastating zombie attack. Insufficient emergency-management-personnel training and poorly conceived undead-defense measures have left the city at great risk for all-out destruction at the hands of the living dead, according to the Zombie Preparedness Institute.
"When it comes to defending ourselves against an army of reanimated human corpses, the officials in charge have fallen asleep at the wheel," Murphy said. "Who's in charge of sweep-and-burn missions to clear out infected areas? Who's going to guard the cemeteries at night? If zombies were to arrive in the city tomorrow, we'd all be roaming the earth in search of human brains by Friday."
From The Onion, of course.

And if you don't have a Glock 17 handy, you can use a regular old pistol of any caliber. Simply drill a hole in the tip of the bullet (or use a hollow-point if you got 'em), then fill the hole with molten wax. Let harden, and BAM! you have an exploding bullet. Great for turning zombie brains into wall decorations.
Of course, if the invaders are Martians instead of zombies, simply play some of that good old-time crooning music from the late 40s-early 50s, and their heads will go POP! on their very own. ;-)
