I disagree. Most parents have no problem buying a video game system for their kids since it keeps them at home. Those same parents are less (that's less) likely to purchase a realistic looking gun knowing that their child will most likely not
be playing with it at home ... althought there will always be the few exceptions.
I would gamble that most of the trouble makers do not go through their parents to get airsoft/BB guns but through their peers.
