IMO not all laws make sense...there may be a reason but it may not make sense, may be a better way of saying it. For example, why is there a law in Minnesota that forbids any man from having sexual intercourse with a live fish? For what reason should such a law even exist?

If someone tried to rob you using airsoft, you would have no idea it was airsoft (most likely). So, in most cases, its cheaper than having a real gun, and easier to get. Perfect for robbing, etc.
That makes sense. Thing is if someone wants to rob a store they are going to do it , making it harder to do wont stop them. But i can see the rationalization there.

I guess it has probably been debated alot alreddy.

If you rob a store with anything (cap gun, gun carved out of a turnip) you get charged as if it was a real gun.

Why should he keep us posted? What he did was illegal, so if he doesn't get caught, you want to try it as well?

Unbelievable!!!
