    Freedom

    I should be allowed to have freedom. Freedom to do anything that I wish or choose. However. I should not be allowed to have freedoms if those freedoms remove the right and privilege of another person to experience them.[1]

    Fun

    The game is fun and harmless


    Gun.

    The real things are not fun and harmless they are serious and damaging [2]

    People

    People are wary of crime and guns and terror do not react well to Fun and Guns ( see 1 and 2 ) .

    Police
    No matter how well you train them the Police are People and they know about Guns but they dont treat them as Fun.


    Culture

    In the UK ( as a generalised view based upon my own experiences ) we are not experienced in everyday gun handling, awareness and use. So people apparently using a weapon in a public ( see people) place will alarm them ( see Police ) causing them to call the Police ( see ... oh, err you get that one right!) who will not treat this as Fun ( yep see that one again )


    So in hindsight .. yes and no ...


    I loved Killer and I love this sort of game. I realise thought that Fun, Gun, Police, People and Culture currently will not enable me to play it without my or other peoples freedoms being limited.


    [1] this is a complex and emotive subject .. but i digressed.
    [2] unless used in purely competive sports which do not impinge upon [1]

    The point is our police wouldnt have the initial knee jerk pull a gun and shoot reaction a US cop might have because simply...they cant can they. No police officer is going to call in an armed unit once the player (who has been briefed extremely well by the organisers) throws the pistol to the police, explains the situation and goes home with a ticking off.

    The US police point is also mute because they never had any trouble so the argument here is how ours would react, see above! Its a 3 week game in which everyone who enters knows the rules. If you see someone walking along with an obvious water pistol do you immediately phone the police? Give people more credit! Im petty sure somewhere in the rules as someone said you cant just run around firing, it has to be done properly.

    Im defending it so much because its the first thing to come along in a long time that might actually offer a real alternative to all our other run of the mill distractions!

    Did you see the pictures of the table leg and a shotgun in the same bag? Would YOU be able to tell the difference, when you've been told that it's a gun and it's pointing at you?

    Yeah right.....

    I know someone who might have a spare room in his flat over the game time. I'll have a chat with him for you.
