Airsoft pistols in school

Another perfectly good reason why the age verification system on here is a MUST.

3 students arrested and 2 pistols confiscated in a high-school in Coaticook, QC

Glad no one was hurt.

Stupidity is everywhere. Just so happens that this one involves airsoft.

The age verification system is good, but it doesn't solve the problem of underage people getting their hands on guns. For instance, me. I currently own 4 (I think) and am not a verified user on these forums. Apart from retailers on this site, there are others, and even though they only sell to 18+, this only means the underage peoples' (possibly ignorant) parents. For instance, I purchased a pistol through my parents from a retailer. Will the retailer know that? No. Who will? No one, except for those involved and those that I have told.

Great you scammed the system and came out ahead. Stop bragging about it.

There is a special place in hell for retailers who knowingly sell a rifle or pistol to a parent with the child standing right beside them, along with people who talk at movies....

The Media will never make the difference between a Pellet gun, Airsoft gun or Cordless Nintendo gun.

A retailer that sells an ASG to a parent. The parent then releases the ASG to their child. The parent is liable for the child's actions. If you have Canadian law that shows differently please link.
This Airsoft forum frowns on minors having uncontrolled access to ASG's and I support that position. But let's be clear on where the Law starts and where the board rules stop.
Cheers

Agreed.
And regardless of laws parents will give into the pestering of their kids sometimes and the sad fact is that alot of kids are bad and their parents are scared of them and will do whatever the kid askes and the worst of if is those are the same kids who are bullies and steal from the corner store and who knows what else so its only a matter of time befor they do something retarded like rob a schoolmate or a store with a gun airsoft or otherwise.
Hell in my neighborhood where i grew up if you had 5-600 bucks you could just grab a real gun off the street and alot of kids did least most of em didnt wind up killin someone.
I guess its better they have toys then real steel but still the parents or whomever sold to them or got for them the "gun" are ultimately liable for their actions.
But to those with the "where wer the parents" attitude they should know that alot of the times they are out getting wasted or smokin crack or something (again thats how it was where i grew up alot of parents round there only kept their kids around for a bigger welfare cheque)

And people who fuck with or steal bikes (or sit on them and drop it, bending the shifter or potentially damaging something). (Don't ever sit on another mans bike, asshole. Wish I could find that Sons of Anarchy clip...).

Obviously my sheltered upbringing on a military base surrounded by stable nuclear families and friends has ill-prepared me for this thread, I will therefore commit commenting hari kari and bow out now.

yes... but looking at the title HERE on ASC where we SHOULD make a difference between pellet pistol and ASG... it should not be written that.

Well im sure being raised by a military mom or dad you likely learned respect of others and respect of firearms.
Where as in the ghetto kids are tought how to "fuck a n***** up" if they look at you the wrong way or sling dope on your block and how a pistol can make you money quick.
Lotta folks dont realise the gaps in society they hear "gansta rap" and dont get that those kids are rapping about what they see and live in their day to day lives.
and my area was relatively tame compared to say regent park or thd jungle (jane and finch) and there are alot of areas like that around the gta.
Lost ot of friends to pointless violence over "turff".
Society doesnt help much everyone who is "bad" gets busted goes to jail and learns how to be worse and gets put right back on the street with no opertunities and go right back to doin the same shit that got them locked up to begin with. Its a visious circle. Finally the government has started to realize they can reduce this by not sticking all the poor people in one neighborhood thats why they tore down regent park and spread them around more to "reduce crime" but they dont really reduce it they just spread it around so yes the crime goes down in regent but goes up in the areas they move the people too so really they are "equalizing crime" by soreading it around.
End rant.

This was honestly an interesting read. Thanks for sharing

Now for the actual thread, I just saw the news on TV, and they were talking about "Pistolet à air comprimé" (Compressed air pistol, or Steel BB Pistol).
They also make everything look far worse than three kids messing with "cool" guns. They should teach people about them, not scare people about them...

If there was a special type of we-love-the-same-TV-show internet fist-bump, now would be the time I'd use it. Awesome show
