Anti-Free Fire

This one's weird. I was walking along the street when I happened past a police box. In front was an announcement display case, and in with the Wanted posters was a poster from the 2016 British movie "Free Fire" (which is showing in Kagoshima right now). What's so odd about it is that the text in Japanese is talking about a 110 (the Japanese version of 911) hotline for reporting anyone that has a handgun. Handgun ownership is illegal in Japan, and only the police are allowed to carry revolvers. So, a British movie about an out of control gunfight in a warehouse has been appropriated by the government to get you to turn in your friends if they have a gun...
