Free Will - "God" style: a gift?

We are always reminded by Christians that God gave us free will. Indeed, the wrongful exercise of free will back in the Garden of Eden was what stuffed up all of creation.
But is it free will if it so closely resembles blackmail?
Is it free will when someone has a gun pointed in your face?

There's something wrong about Gods free will, as described in the bible. It doesn't look very free. If any human parent or friend can give free will to others better than God can, then that doesn't say much for God being perfect.

It could just be that the whole thing is a bunch of bullshit designed to scare children and blame the victim.

Here are the biblical verses which I referred to and quoted, and which I'm sure people are going to accuse me of having misinterpreted and taken out of context.
Rev 3:20
John 5:22
2 Timothy 4:1
Revelation 20:15
Luke 16:24
Romans 6:13
Romans 5:15
