Guns vs. melee wepons

So far 5 people have told me that guns would be usless during the zombie apocalypse. Their argument said that melee wepons dont need reloading and dont make nosie. My argument says that using only melee wepons puts you at unnessasry risk (i.e. being to close to infected/being hit in eyes with zombie blood), and guns have a more powerfull and ranged attack. Personally I would use guns but always keep a baseball bat and kukri in my car trunk. Whats your stance on it?
