FIXED More Bad Airsoft Media (Calgary)

i have just seen a news report on CTV and managed to get it saved, seems some teenagers were spotted with a glock in their pocket, here's video of the report
http://that-geek.is-a-geek.com/airsoft.mpg
it may be slow, this is my apache, but its not that big (5.12mbs)
EDIT: too slow? try this as well
http://www.kieransweb.com/airsoft.mpg

due to complaints on the above codec (unknown) heres a DivX .avi file
(apache server)
http://that-geek.is-a-geek.com/airsoft.avi
and on a possible faster server:P (3.5mbs)

Sorry Torn, i dont want to kick you in the face.
If you would have seen the news report on CFCN the officer who apperently arrested/intervieuwed the 2 boys does talk about a BB gun and also the newsreporter.
This is defently related to Airsoft.
@ Somebody: How does ASC reacts to this kind of bad news.

what does it mean "turn it over to the police" ? it sounds like we are not suppose to own them? does the police confiscate them on sight even though it is legal??

we generally dismiss it, because it was one isolated incident, committed by one or two individuals.

and the fact that we can't really do anything about it. The same thing happens with paintball markers, airguns, etc. and they are still around, and we will be too.

jdyahoo:

by this they literally mean: "it is perfectly legal for you to own these guns, but we would like it ever so much if you could give us your $300 gun, so that we can play with it back at the station."

nah... i think the news cast was exgerating to instill fear into the public and of course make the story more interesting.

But yes... ive compared air soft glock to live glock and damn.. the resembalance is remarkable! Except for a few difference... such as the magazine release switch is slightly different shape.

But if i was a cop and saw a kid wielding the air soft version id probably draw on him.

It also made me go WTF when he said "they are perfectly legal, but police would like anyone who has one to turn them in". What kind of half assed comment was that?

In the City section of today's Calgary Herald there is an article about these 15 year olds and their replica glock. Page B1, fyi. I plan on scanning it when I get back from work and posting it here. However, they do say that the guns are "legal to sell and own unless they are used in a malicious manner or criminal offence."

So, no Chicken Little, the sky is not falling.
