The unthinkable website was created by a group of enthusiasts to learn if Internet users can kill people online. A social experiment had a goal to understand if people are responsible enough to own guns without any gun control. They simply gave out guns to everyone. After a fast registration process a visitor was given a number in a line and after a queuing could control a robotized rifle with his mouse or arrow keys and shoot by pressing a space button. Activists closed a small city square for a day and brought actors to make it as real as possible. When a person was at the gunpoint an operator enabled a trigger button. If someone pressed it the operator told the person at the gun point to fall. After a few rehearsals they could fall very convincingly.
