Plastic Gun Roleplay Leads to Call for Video Game Ban. Wait, What?S

Donned in camo fatigues and bulletproof vests, four masked men were on a villa rooftop near a government building in Abu Dhabi. Special forces arrived and arrested the four men. The men were carrying fake guns as well as plastic and metal clubs. They were videotaping themselves roleplaying.

According to daily newspaper The National, Col. Ibrahim Sultan Al Zaabi, chief of the city's Al Shaabiya police station, called the men's behavior "absurd, childish, and unjustifiable". The top cop is now calling for a ban on importing violent video games, blaming a "culture of violence among children".

The National added that he was also calling for a ban on the sale of fake weapons and firecrackers, too. Making guns out of your fingers and saying "bang" are safe for now.
