I can't wait for some crazy person to try to blow this out of proportion.
"OMG!! Airsoft is fully to blame for this! Don't mind the kids retarded parents who gave him the money, and most likely bought it for him. And who also don't see anything wrong with him talking about beating h**s and cappin asses all day... IT WAS ALL AIRSOFTS FAULT"
Hopefully I'm wrong... I just feel very cynical right now.
As sad as it is that's probably what will happen even though he's 18 and therefore a LEGAL adult who's responsible for his own actions. He probably bought it with his own money too (I don't know too many 18 year olds asking their parents for "allowances" other than those stereotypical rich mainlander chicks). In fact like George Lopez says, if you ask for "allowance" you'd likely get an "allowance" to live and not get your ass kicked by your grandma.
I'm not going to pass judgment because the details are sketchy but if someone saw it then that's obviously a no no and therefore it eliminates the scenario that the gun was in a case. It could have been his backpacks zipper got opened somehow and the pistol/rifle just stuck out enough for someone to be concerned though. (I know with my backpack sometimes the zipper gets "loose" and the backpack is opened)
