With the recent article on Robin Linden’s blog reporting that Open Registration has caused an staggering shift in the ratio of US to non-US residents from 75%/25% to 50%/50%, isn’t it time for Linden Lab to start looking at the implications of having guns and other weapons in SL.

Gun culture is a culture exclusive to the USA. Full stop.

If Second Life continues to support this culture in-world, it will never be the world-wide construct Linden Lab wants it to be. This prevalence of guns and other weapons will hold Second Life back from being the alternative ‘verse that will appeal to the growing global broadband market.

Indiscriminate weapon use has a consequence in RL; so too should it in SL, otherwise it will remain just a game.
