Why don't you just try giving kids a place to play, why is it you don't want kids on airsoft fields? You've made it clear that kids do dumb things in public and that might ruin the sport but how does this have anything to do with banning them from airsoft fields? Can someone please answer that question?
It's all about legal liability. If I shoot some 14-year-old's eye out because he took his goggles off in the middle of a firefight, as an adult I am 100% responsible, not the cockholster kid who took his goggles off. That is the reason I will not play with minors - not even my 17-year-old son. A waiver doesn't mean shit in this country - our law does not allow for someone to completely waive their personal rights away. Additionally, a minor cannot sign a legal document, so even if they signed a waiver, it doesn't mean shit.

I'm not going to be the one to get fucked by the system. Is this unfair to minors who still want to play? Yes it is - and too fucking bad for them. They can grow up, become able make adult decisions for themselves and take legal responsibility for the consequences of those decisions, and then cry at home when they get their eye shot out and I won't lose a second of sleep over them suffering for their own stupidity.
