007 airsoft in the news...

I just saw 007 airsoft website in the news (TVA Montreal channel) The journalist was saying police is worried about how easy was to get replica guns... and they clearly say airsoft guns... And there's a video from airsoft canada (At the dog pit, operation quickpass i think) and threre's pictures too...

Good or bad publicity for 007..?

And they tell that airsoft are sold to minor, but ASC isn't. The explain a little bit what people do in airsoft games but mostly they say people use it to rob shops...

I wish they could see the responsible side to our sport...they dont give baseball bad press and people have been robbing stores for years with baseball bats...hopefully the people monitoring these forums will see that we control our ways
cant find a link to the article anywhere online?...this is always percieved the wrong way by the public...i wish journalists would do thier homework..damn!

Fuck those goddamn whiney assholes. Does noone have anything better to talk about? There's definately a correlation between "slow" (uneventful) weeks, and airsoft appearing in the news....

And why the FUCK doesn't the police worry about anything else? Seriously. They think about airsoft more than I do.

Another big peice of grade A whiny ass bullshit.

If you ask me, people who are shot by police because they are holding an airsoft rifle DESERVE IT. If they a fucking stupid enough to have it out in public then they DESERVE to be shot. If someone ignorently buys an airsoft gun and treats it like a toy when it obviously is not a toy or an actual gun. But they should be treated with the same respect. Another story pitting us against irrationality.

I have to agree with your first point. Whenever there is an uneventful news week airsoft always seems to come up. As for your second point I dont believe that the police are as worried about airsoft as the news would lead us to think. I can safely say this because we play airsoft at the same place the police come up to shoot at. They know full well that who we are and what we do, but so far have taken no interest whatsoever.

the matter is not airsoft canada ... it is all about kids playing with airsoft\softair hurting people and themselves (reffering to what happened in Rimouski and mostly what's vehiculed on the web) . Unfortunally, the only information on airsoft\softair in Canada is this website. So, he didnt pointed us like the matter of everything EVEN if we have a 18+ policy. AND he didnt clearly said that 007 is a part of the matter.

hey .. he took a footage that a friend have made last year at OP: Quickpass2!!! is that legit?

It is, if they have received permission from the owners of the footage, or if they show the source of the footage and credit it.

It's contestable whether it's legit or not, if the footage was grabbed from a public posting without the presence of copyright warnings and posted without the proper accreditations.

Yeah, cops don't care as much. Wouldn't be surprised if a few of them played.

I have 2 police (OPP) standing here reading this right now, they could care less about busting airsofters. Just like anything else resembling a weapon " you point it at me and i will shoot "
I will get them both out to a game by summers end.
