That is definitely a good point, as with all things there are pros and cons, as long as there is balance. The article itself has some bias "..“I like shooting them,” Cathy said. “I like the sound they make. It gets me excited.”.." comes from it. I do think Military should have access to airsoft weapons for realistic training but I do worry about when this kind of stuff happens with children.

Edit: I do tend to shy away from words like "Indoctrinate".
