    A report of a person with an assault weapon walking near Bungie Studios sent a team of police swarming to the Kirkland, Washington studio yesterday afternoon. The incident turned out to be a misunderstanding and a surprise interruption of what was supposed to be a less eventful visit by your deputy editor to play some Halo 3: ODST.
    The person who had thought they'd seen a gunman in the neighborhood had actually seen a Bungie employee carrying a replica Halo rifle back to the studio's offices, Bungie community director Brian Jarrard told me. Recognizing there was no longer an emergency, officers advised Bungie officials to transport the gun more discretely in the future.

    Yeah, those Spartans carry some realistic looking weapons. I bet they would have sh!t a brick if the guy was sporting a Spartan Laser.

    A black-powder blunderbuss loaded with a standard coach load of buck-and-ball would do more damage to more people than that riflle - were it real- would. But If I dress up like a Pilgrim and carry a fake blunderbuss in the Thanksgiving parade, nobody will even blink (unless they are a truly nutty type-two anti).

    I assume everybody knew it was a movie studio of some kind, and that studios use props. Are these folks bloody stupid???

    I was surprised that most of the comments at the original URL were positive. Then again, geeks and gamers tend to be pretty libertarian, and sticklers for accuracy.

    YEARS AGO, I had someone make a MWAG call on me. I was watching deer in a field, with a spotting scope on a tripod.

    It would be worth it to file a FOIA request and file against the person making the call. I bet they'd fold like a refrigerator carton underneath Rosie O'Donnell's limitless mass.
