They may still do it with or without the community but at least if something happens, and anyone starts digging, they won't be associated to this forum (and whatever elements of the community decide to ostracize them).

Were any of the replica zombies seen by the public as real zombies?

That's ZombieCanada.com's problem.

If we know who they are, let's say good riddance as soon as possible, and be done with them.

I'm glad to see such a positive response in dealing with these guys, with this I know that at least the bar is set, and that these guys will possibly be made an example of. I was furious when I saw it, glad to see the community coming together to solve a very real issue.

Is there something in the drinking water? Might want to look into that.

As a former Club Admin in one of the largest Airsoft clubs out here in the west, we have had to deal with punkass fools such as these from time to time, our policy is "zero" you do anything to bring the image of our sport down in the eye of the law enforcement or public, you will be flamed, banned tar and feathered, there is no room for fucktards that want to ruin what so many for so long have had to fight and scratch for "acceptance in the community". the fact that airsoft guns can now be purchased so easy makes this job even more important, clubs have to do everything in their power to stay united on this lack of respect and distance themselves from the losers, if the law and community sees that we are making a very conscious effort and not just shrugging our shoulders and shaking our heads, they will be more forgiving to the sport instead of throwing poop on everything to do with airsoft, all people will see then if it ever came to legislation is, "ah get rid of these nuisance toys"
Flame them, Ban them, Take pics and post them, dont be afraid to turn them in, our right to play this game and own the guns is only as strong as the commitment to keep the sport respectful, there is no way we will stop all stupidity but the obvious stuff in front of our face has to be dealt with firmly.

This may be the copious amounts of alcohol in my system....

...but I would suggest grabbing their airsoft guns out of their hands and spiking them into the concrete football style just to make sure they're not real.

Seriously, it's the only way to be sure. Any airsoft guns in an open public setting that are not part of a registered, verified display ought to be treated like that.

Just to be sure.

Safety, you know.

There was also a truck load of them using paintball guns and shooting in the air (with barrel plugs) and the cops still talked to them.

Yup this could become a serious issue. I think to be safe, next year all replica zombies' dress attire needs to be clear plastic see through.

Also, what's the point of a zombie walk? Or zombie anything. It seems lame....

Whats the point of airsoft its just a group of people having fun
Whats the point of concerts its just a group of people enjoying music

The zombie walk was for fun, also it worked as a food drive.

Mmmm... zombie roundup and barbecue!

Seriously though, any ASC members should know better. We should be held to a higher standard than the idiot kids we bitch about whenever they take springers to school and make us all look bad.
