Good article but this one line kind of stands out to me

Mr. Chong is one of several airsoft enthusiasts who agreed to a rare interview with the National Post. Many participants remain reluctant to discuss the sport openly, for fear the general public may not understand or accept it
If we want people to understand/accept what we do why are people still reluctant to discuss it openly. There's nothing for us to hide so why keep it under our hats like in the old days where it was basically illegal to own airsoft. With all the changes to laws we should be more open and vocal to the general public.
In my opinion the more that the general public knows about what we do and as long as we are open the better.

I do like the quote further down the article

“As long as you can educate the new players properly, growth is a good thing,” he says. “There are certain laws and regulations you have to abide by. We have to explain the seriousness of owning these things. It’s a responsibility.”
This is an excellent attitude that every airsofter should share.
