Airsoft gun on COPS?

Just wondering if anyone else watched cops tonight (Sat.29) There was some kid (15 I think) who got arrested with what looked to be an airsoft Glock. This could (or may already have had) have an impact on the airsoft community. If anyone saw this, or wants to give imput I'd love to hear it.

Cops is in the states if im not mistaken, it wont impact us at all. If it was on 'To serve and protect' then it could be.

Yeah, it was in the States - so that's good it wont affect us.

As for being stupid, he definitly was. I too was very angry while watching that call. Very happy that he got it taken/ went to jail. Thanks guys for the quick replies.

No, they had said it was a bb gun, so I assumed it was an airsoft gun since it was so realistic.

Yeah, if it was airsoft, I'd say it had a metal slide and barel kit on it. It didnt look like a cheap gun to me.

IIRC i saw that Ep. last july, it was indeed a FMU Glock, they mention it being a "BB gun" at least once during the segment...

Why on earth would this have any effect on us? Firstly, the episode first aired about two years ago, and secondly being in the US it could have just as easily have been a real Glock.

Ease back, Chicken Little

Considering COPS shows re-runs from the late 80's and early 90's how do you even know what decade this was from? On a side note, you'd figure that with all the crime that takes place they could come up with some new fucking episodes.

If the States were to make airsoft illegal it surely would affect canada as well, as our law makers look to see what other countries are doing in law, and sometimes the US puts pressure on Canada to create and change laws.

Ya, that sure worked well for the US of A when Canada planned to, and did, legalize cannabis.

Replica guns(airsoft)

Already compose almost 50% of weapons seized in most arrests here in Toronto.
Most of the gang members "carrying" are toting replicas.
A telltale bulge under the shirt.. or the gangland "flash" of a weapon is about intimidation .. and a replica works as well as a real gun for that.

A recent sweep of gang members yielded a haul of some 24 "prohibited weapons" of which 14 were replicas.

Replica firearms are already proscribed under the law...they are already "illegal" if improperly used.
There is no need to worry about "airsoft being made illegal" there are enough laws to serve the public good for abusers of airsoft weapons.
