This would lead to more bad behaviour with airsoft guns, as opposed to kids legally playing on a field. I don't think the media and the "GTA soccer moms" as you guys call them will care if an crime with a BB gun was due to a teen posessing it illegally, they will still want to bring airsoft down.
Outlawed or not, it looks like a Gun. According to current society Guns are bad, therefore Airsoft is bad. Even legal it still has the "rebel" appeal you speak of, plus if it were legalized for minors, it would just make them more readily acessable, and as such the likely hood of them being used in crimes sky rockets.
Think about it for a moment.
