This post deserves to be photoshoped with a big PWNED on it.

BTW if he was there and didn't even say sorry then you shouldn't even kick him in the face.

What a douche.
When I was in elementary school, we weren't allowed to bring any type of guns period. Not even a neon orange coloured water gun.

But hey, I'm sure when we get something new, we all want to show it off.
There's always a time for anything, but the kid learns the lesson the hard way.

If the kid that got shot was anything of a future man he'd whooped the other kids ass. broke that gun on his nose. thats what. Why are becoming a "wrap in bubble wrap and hide in the closet" society?

Wow... way to encourage kids to over-react to a minor incident with violence. He sure would have proved his "manliness" had he done that. Nothing like an assault charge, and probably suspension from school to prove you're a "man".

Hell for all we know these kids were friends, and somebody's mother or a teacher over-reacted and called in the cops.

EDIT: I just realized you're 16. Wow... never mind. You dont know how to be a man yet anyway.

I love this community.

I've seen kinds bring real Airsoft guns to my old High School before, I have no idea how they got them but I've seen Silver Desert Eagles, Beretta's, and 1911's with metal bodies at my school before. They were definitely Airsoft guns and not real guns, because I'm pretty sure I'd hear the real ones going off in the ally's and such when they're "plinking" at lunch time. At least no one was stupid enough to pull one on someone else or shoot someone else with malicious intent at that school. They were at least smart enough to not wave them around either, and I only ever saw them "plinking" in ally ways and such at lunch break usually.

Either way, it's still bad, and I would have reported them if I knew it was actually going to do any good. Really though, if someone's going to bring an Airsoft gun to school to impress his friends, he's not going to learn by getting a smack on the wrist from the cops and school administration.

He pointed a loaded .308 at me once and said he was going to shoot. That was'nt fun.
Which begs the reasoning why you'd be friends with such a douche that would put you in harms way? If a friend of mine did something that stupid and put my life in danger I'd kick the shit out of him and he'd be picking his teeth up from off the floor.

Airsoft shooting isolated event
by Wayne Moore - Story: 42358
Oct 10, 2008 / 5:00 am

The shooting of a 12-year-old boy with an airsoft pellet gun, while waiting for a school bus in the District of Westside Wednesday, was an isolated incident.

That is the opinion of both the RCMP and School District 23 officials.

The boy was shot in the leg by another 13-year-old boy. Both are students at Constable Neil Bruce Middle School.

The victim was not seriously hurt, although the incident did cause his leg to swell.

SD23 Superintendent, Mike Roberts, would not divulge the discipline handed out in this instance.

Roberts says he is not hearing of an increase in weapons in district schools, specifically the increasingly popular airsoft guns.

"There are very few instances of students bringing replica guns to school. I think part of that is schools tend to be a controlled environment in that there are strict rules in place," says Roberts.

"Students pretty much know that they are not welcome. The student in this case broke the rules and will suffer the consequences of that, but incidents of that are very rare."

Roberts says there are far more reports of students with these types of guns out on a Friday night or on a weekend, and that he says, is where the concern lies.

RCMP Constable, Steve Holmes, who has spent time as a school liaison officer, echoed many of those same sentiments.

"Is it a cause for great concern? I would say not, but the fact that even on the rare instance it does show up, it indicates kids and parents do always need to be aware," says Holmes.

"Parents have to sort of be in control of this because if you look at any other toy that you consider a toy, it doesn't compare to this kind of thing."

Holmes says there was an incident at Kelowna Senior Secondary last year where a student was shot with one of these guns. He says criminal charges were laid in that instance.

He says other weapons, such as knives and clubs are also confiscated from time to time, but again, says these are not the norm.
Well that seems like a particularly well-reasoned response actually. No condemnation of the items or the sport. They even do the "other dangerous items" comparison.

Relax. Real weapons will be banned outright long before airsoft is banned. If any action is going to be taken it is going to be something to do with controlling access to these clearsoft toys and possibly educating children and parents on the dangers of their use.

Well, that would make sense anyway.

"YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE 18 TO PLAY AIRSOFT. YOU JUST HAVE TO GO TO AN ABANDONED WEARHOUSE, AND SHOOT ANYTHING THAT SHOOTS AT YOU!"

That kind of line in your sig doesn't exactly shine a very favourable light on you.
