Educate parents? Yeah I'm sure that will go over well. "What you're trying to make sure we're safe from these Dangerous weapons? Why don't we ban them?"
The only thing that could probably benefit airsoft in Canada is going the direction of paintball and making it more "soccer mom friendly" and you know what that means right??? It means we're going to end up with spray and pray "tactics", "agg-muppets" as I believe the paintball community refers to them as (guys who just need to chill the fuck out and have fun instead of trying to win all the time), and neon coloured team uniforms (although I actually have nothing against them for paintball it just ruins it if you're talking about airsoft).
I am only stating a simple fact that the law does not care about the well being of this sport. What we can do about it? unfortunately not much unless we talk to our friends and neighbors about it and spend countless hours convincing them its perfectly safe despite a few recent events of violence using these things.
Note: If we all do this and make every person we know aware, it could make a difference in my opinion. Going public with it may not be the best idea.
