I'd keep it legal.
Treat them like the real deal.

Haha I'm glad MA is getting the fucking ban...I'm sick of watching kids play springer wars with no eye protection at my little cousin's school yard...

I found that over the summer MA was pushing airsoft/soft air really hard into the main stream. basically all army surplus stores had them, wal marts had shitloads of it...it was quite disturbing...

i don't get why they ban airsoft and replicas when it is easy to make a fake gun into a replica like one and also why they'd ban airsoft and other guns of that nature just because one man was stupid enough(or want suicide by cop) to draw a gun on a the police

Does it not seem that these main stream rip-off replicas of Air soft called "Soft-Air". Theses Taiwanese non-clear" soft Air" crap is going to drag Airsoft into all theses recent problems of replicas in the class room. Or Replica hold-up robberies.
It pisses me off to no end to see these selling at markets or dollar stores, Canadian tire, or what not.. And of course it's the same thing in the publics eye.

Exactly my point you could get orange spray paint and paint a gun orange and vice versa for cap gun for example

Hmm, thats a very true point Grave...I don't know how they are going to make it legal, like you said, and on the opposite if they were clear or coloured all one would need to do is paint it to look real, its a disturbing reality.... they will ban it slowly im sure....

I'm sure someone's going to whine about their rights to bear arms include the rights to bear replica firearms.
