On a related note:
New Zealand sounds very much like Canada with regard to airsoft laws:
YouTube - airsoft on closeup
NZTV Close-up on : "Airsoft"
Some press as well executed as this could probably help us. It presents the topic in a fair way, and offers professional (police) representation that states the rules and that airsoft poses in no way a threat to society as long as it's players respect the law and play in clearly defined areas.
