I call bullshit on that. If I'm in target practice and I go bonkers and shoot some poor sap in the head, its not the fault of whatever I saw that inadvertantly freaked me out or the instructors for giving me a gun because that was the whole point of the excerise. No one in the room was expecting Armory to freak out to the extent that she did.
