If you are a responsible minor, then you will agree to follow the laws and the requirements that go with them, right? Such as being a responsible adult to own one?
Or respecting city bylaws and such?

Grey I think the argument was that the minors who are responsible are bitching because they don't want the irresponsible ones (who don't agree with what you wrote above) screwing crap up for the rest of them before they have a chance to get into the sport.

get informed... read the fracking law
It's not that I wasn't thinking what we were doing was illegal, I was under the impression from what I've read and what I've been told, that the only reason it's legal for us to have them is because of a loophole, because it's undefined as to what they are, airguns or replicas. That was the explanation I got when I first started into airsoft, and I never questioned it again because I thought I understood it, but I guess I just never heard a clear cut explanation. My bad?

There's a flaw in that complaint; irresponsible minors will just get caught. Responsible minors just have to wait until they are 18 and this becomes legal for them. Nothing to worry about if they wait, is there?

I doubt very much that idiotic teens will cause airsoft to be banned. And the ban for teens owning them already exists. It's been that way for years. The only difference is that now the public is being told (again, in the papers) to get a clue.

If you had taken the time to read the posts about a recent raid in Toronto, you would have read that the Courts have now defined airsoft as Replicas. Replica laws apply.
That's as clear a set of laws as we could hope for, something we can work with.

Ah ok. I guess that's a good thing (possibly?) that at least we're dealing with something defined, now.

You know that, because you've been around long enough to see this happan before. I know it because I've read a shitload of stuff and heeded what I've been told by everyone who's been around for a long time. Not all these n00bs know that, and they just don't want to see a sport they want to get into dissapear. Lighten up. At least they're bitching about the irresponsible ones who are their age.

It's at the point where I want the shit banned just so we can not have to hear this garbage repeated until our ears and eyes bleed.

Im not exactly worried about cops treating them like they are real guns. Because thats how they should be treated by the people who bought them, they are not toys. Its the fact that people are actually willing to ruin what we have just so they can steal something or be a freakin idiot.

Maybe that will never change though, thats the price we pay for wanting realism.
