Police Swarm Bungie’s Office (Makers of Halo video game)

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 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.

Recognizing there was no longer an emergency, officers advised Bungie officials to transport the gun more discretely in the future.


Of note, the article states the following:

“Kirkland police, contacted today for more details, said a passerby on their way to the local farmer’s market called 911 saying that they thought they saw someone walking down the street with an AK-47 about 4:20 p.m.”

This just typifies the hoplophobes tendency to label any “scary” weapon they see as an AK-47.

Looks a lot more akin to a Barret .50 BMG to me!
