Or Toronto................... I trust you've been keeping up with that one......... blacks are safer in Detriot than in Toronto........... Toronto is the prime example of how the "Soft On Crime" mentality does NOT work!
I don't know what stats you've been reading, but over a ten year trend, violent crimes in Toronto have been falling. There's only been a slight increase in the use of firearms. Toronto is the safest big City in Canada. For a city our size, and to still remain quite safe, that says something of the way the or social programs are working.

About the use of Airsoft as a training aid. Though cheaper than simunitions or blanks, it doesn't ad enough to the realism. Yes, you get the feel for moving through a room with a weapon, and popping off a few shots, but there's no bang or hard recoil. Those are two of the biggest factors to get over when actually using a weapon, and thats something Airsoft can not train you for.
