"Airsoft is played with toy guns that shoot small, biodegradable soft balls accurately up to 30 feet in distance." I give up on news sources.

The part that scares me most is it was 12 year old with council approval!

Great idea... Are the kids' parents really that oblivious? Soft ammo? My head hurts.

"Charity airsoft game turn to drama when a 12 years old kid have his eyes put out while another is bleading from the mouth. A mother is sueing an other and one father alegedly came to physical violence when his kid got bleeding welts in the face. City council is talking about banning airsoft within city limits. The Liberal opposition in Ottawa is talking about making an example out of this fiasco to push the conservative governement to act."

The news the next day.

Good idea, poorly executed, and not likely to have a great outcome.
first and foremost, doesn't look like anyone has eye pro...

Holy Jebus, a kid putting a good face on airsoft with the City's blessing and donating proceeds to feed a foodbank?

Does he not know we are all card carrying bad-asses who live and breathe to fuck shit up?

For shame!

Someone is going to ruin it by showing up with an AEG right? Since I presume he and his friends have been playing with the spring powered clearsoft guns.

Wonder about the after math since apparently it will/did take place on October 26

Maybe try educating rather then hating on the kid.
I do find it amusing how so many here are quick to judge when they do nothing.

Too bad none of you showed up with guns accurate to 200+ feet...

We do. We ban kids from playing and educate the parents who try to get Age Verified to buy their kids better equipment.

We are not the airsoft police and our words of wisdome do get lost in the sea of stupids.

My big problem is its a bunch of 12 years olds in a public park in the middle of the day with air soft guns. In an area I may add where a Durham Regional Police officer has been the face of banning the sport in Ontario for a few years now. I'm all for good publicity related to the sport, just not a fan of how this kid operated his "event" pick a more secluded spot, fuck knows we have lots of them in the area. This is the most used public space in Uxbridge and happens to be on a very residential and busy street.
