You do something dumb as hell with an airsoft gun, and you get pinched. Seems easy enough to figure out to me.
That's exactly why a government who knows what's best for us will legislate these things into oblivion. We are proven to not be responsible, therfore we need protection from ourselves.

Think I'm joking? Our latest Firearms Act prohibits weapons based on their "scariness" and not on dimensions or function. Fear drives laws and what better to scare the hell out of voters than irresponsible kids assaulting people with guns?

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
