Transcript WESTERCHRON SECURITY I'm concerned about all the hassle over weapons at conventions. Personally, I think that they add to the atmosphere of a con. Some people, however, seem to feel threatened by blasters, pistols, swords and the like. The following rules are intended to make everybody feel a little safer, and to make weapons wearers a little more thoughtful. These are, now, hard and fast rules. Please read and follow them. GENERAL RULES 1. NEVER POINT A WEAPON AT ANYONE. Not even a fake zap gun. At best, you will only scare someone. At worst, you may end up dead. (Did you hear about the kid at a con who pulled a gun on a cop?) This rule is for your safety. Many people don't like having things pointed at them. They may take exception to it. You may get hurt. 2. Don't run with a sword or other sharp, pokey object in your hand or on your bod. t—- ^ A 2-. EDGED WEAPONS 3. All edged weapons must have sheathes. The edges must be covered when you are taking a weapon from somewhere to someplace. 4. Any knife, sword, and/or other edged weapon must have some form of strap to prevent the inadvertent drawing of the weapon. Some sort of snap arrangement, so that you could draw it when you wanted to, might be best. This will keep some young John Carter of Mars from going, "Wow! Is that a sword?"... draw, swing... "Can I see it?" GUNS 5. Don't bring real guns to Westerchron. A con really isn't the place for your .45 Colt just because it looks good with your costume. Some people have some very realistic model guns. If I think that your gun is real, I will ask to see it, and I will check to determine if it is real. (If it isn't, think of my request as a compliment to your model-making ability.) ENERGY WEAPONS 6. Energy weapons can be a problem. The EPA has regulations regarding the use of lasers. If you haven't already done so, I suggest that you order a copy of those regulations and read them. ADDITIONAL POINTS 7. Don't involve anyone in your fantasy against his/her will, or without telling him/her about it first. 8. We support the policy of the Denvention II Committee: "IF YOU KILL IT, YOU EAT IT!" 26 WESTERCHRON
