The biggest diffences between learning how to safely shoot a rifle and shotgun
and laser tag is that you are NOT SHOOTING AT PEOPLE! Capture the Flag does not
involve "killing" the opponent, thus it is acceptable. Even dodge ball does not
call it "killing", "shooting", or any similar phrase; you are simply out for
this round. It is more akin to baseball, where you get a specific number of
"outs" before your team "retires".
