The people on the streets with their guns aren't considered to be playing Airsoft, because they are in a designated field. There just acting like idiots to think that someone who sees them in camo and look-a-like guns wouldn't call the cops on them.
A program or something should be put in place through all the retailers, that when they maybe sell the guns either in person or through mail, that they could maybe send a pamphlet or give them one defining the rules of Airsoft and the laws surrounding it.
Many times people don't do their research, they don't come on this website, and go ahead and buy the guns. Thats why people are running around. They just simply aren't INFORMED. Thats the root problem, if they knew they could be charged, if they knew their $500 guns would be taken and destroyed, only the idiots who are criminals would use it for a crime.
Uninformed people, thats the problem.
You're completely out in left feild. The big problem isnt people playing airsoft in the streets, that rarely happens here. The big problem is the use of airsoft in crimes and airsoft being carried by criminals and "gangster" wannabes. That is what's sparked the comments from Victoria Police, and led to this article.
Guns are meant to go bang, not bling!
Just say no to chrome guns.
