Soldier Systems ran an article on that.
Here's the comment I made on there:
Yet another law that misses the point an only bothers law-abiding citizens…
Law-abiding citizens buying them for collection or airsoft/milsim will follow the law, criminals using them for robberies will just get the clear ones and paint them or simply buy out of the state.
And this will also cost a couple thousand jobs, as California has probably highest number of airsoft stores in the US plus the many airsoft-only fields or the paintball/airsoft fields that will see much less players because, as the editor said, there’s no point in milsim with bright pink guns…
California is getting almost worse on guns than Canada – that’s saying a lot.
