This article doesn't seem... as much of a big deal, as the last one. Although this one is more of a criminal thing, it doesn't talk about how airsoft should be banned, or have anti-airsoft police quotes. It just says that they threatened with replica BB guns. Using a replica in this manner is illegal and it happens all the time anyway.
Sky isn't falling... I doubt this will have any impact on us. A criminal or two did a stupid thing, they will get charged. That's all.
