Life and Death in Pixels -- Checkpoint Games

There is a opinion about weapons that many people love to throw around which is this, never carry a weapon, be it a gun or knife, for self protection unless you’re willing to use it. A prime example of this is Salman Rushdie, a famous author, who had a Fatwa declared on him for running a fowl of Iran’s religious sensibilities. A Fatwa for those that don’t know is essentially religiously motivated hit and Rushdie had to live under one for ten years between 1988 and 1998. For his safety Rushdie was placed under the protection of the British government. In an interview with Bill Maher, Rushdie mentioned how he was offered firearms training so he would be able to shoot an attacker. Rushdie however explained that he had denied the offer, citing a version of the opinion stated above (Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Dishonored, PC, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, PSP, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Xbox 360, Xbox One)
