rather than just chalking it up to the stupidity of youth, actually THINK about the reasons why this kid/kids did what they did. That's all I ask.
Is that a little easier and more straight forward now?
The easiest way for soccer moms to get airsoft banned, is if we turn a blind eye and do nothing.
Everytime we hear about some kid getting shot in a park with airsoft, we do think about it. And the only explanation we've come up with is stupidity of the kid(s) and stupidity of the parent(s).
Also we aren't turning a blind eye and doing nothing. Many of us have written to MPs and we've also had a group of well known airsofters write a formal letter to the government. As well we all follow rules regarding storage and transport of our airsoft guns from our house to the field.
