Funny thing is that people arn't prosecuted like a real firearm (if at all) due to it being a "toy" gun. Great example recently was the driveby by couple of teens in Manitoba (
) Maybe if people realized that they would be prosecuted then we wouldn't have this. However, just because you may not get prosecuted doesn't mean u wont get shot. I dont know why people tangle with the police with airsoft guns.
