It was a piece about Brian and his set up in Toronto. mostly talking about how we have to keep a low profile because of Toronto's gun crime and societies views on guns.

Well, hopefully ill be spared a flaming.

But ive been hearing a bit about some ruling thats due out tommorow regarding the importation of firearms. Somehow airsoft falls into it.

Thats all I know. Wether its true or not I don't know either.

For those interested:
http://www.canada.com/globaltv/natio...ast/index.html

The podcast is up, and the segment starts around when the show has 7 minutes left, "When war becomes entertainment".

All you need is Quicktime, you don't need an Ipod.Just fast forward to about 3/4 of the way through. As far as comments on the piece...Well, if it was me I wouldn't have done it.

It just talks about how we try and keep low key with all the gun violence in canada. How we like to protect our image etc. Another interview with Brian that i don't think the community had say in again.

Yeah, you can use iTunes as a video player for it. Though its a 140 meg download.

Basicly the segment discussed how airsoft is basicly a simulation of modern war, and that its roughly as real you can get without "going to Khandahar". It interviewd both McIlmoyle and an associate of his. They discussed that this is meant purley for entertainment, and that we are not underground, but unkown. An unkown player is quoted as saying something to the effect of "Your running around in low light conditions with a submachinegun shooting your friends, its a recipie for fun". There was no real editorial comment on players being gun nuts, terrorists, or what have you. Through by the same token Airsofters are portrayed, in Brians word to be "deconstructing violence in order to better understand it", and are shown to be training in other forms of martial arts. This may come back to bite us later on, but I will save the editorial for later.

That was the jist of the segment. I'm hoping someone else more technically literate will be able to cut the appropriate section out of the podcast and post it on Youtube, or something of the like for general consumption.
