The re-enactment community in the UK is very large.. well organized, deeply established and very closely tied with tourism. So they have quite a lot more clout with lawmakers than the .001% of the population here that are airsofters.
It is wrongheaded to think that we can get an exclusion written in to law to preserve an activity that most people would think is against public interest.
Our situation is not analogous to the UK situation.
