College Poster Banned For Featuring NES Zapper

According to a report from the College’s newspaper, Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, has refused permission from students to put up a poster on campus because it featured a gun. A fake, plastic, video game gun from the 1980s.

Designed to advertise a “game-themed social night”, the students were forced to remove the depiction of the totally harmless NES Zapper peripheral, deciding to replace it with a Nintendo Power Glove instead.

Of note is that while the children’s toy was forcibly removed, the image of a pint of beer could stay.
