Bin voyons !!!! Manquait plus que ça !!!

Ce n'est pas à proprement parlé une interdiction totale mais bien de peindre l'intégralité des répliques en couleur flashy voir, entièrement transparent...

Le 26 Mars 2011, les ennuis ont commencé.

Le premier à en avoir parlé est le Dr. Airsoft, à cet endroit.

Je cite :

Citation :
California SB 798
California Senate Bill 798 was introduced by Senator Kevin de Leon( and passed the Senate Public Safety Committee by a 3 to 2 vote on March 26. This bill, if passed, would prohibit "the sale, manufacture, transportation, receipt, or distribution of imitation firearms for commercial purposes" unless "the entire exterior surface of the device is
white, bright red, bright orange, bright yellow, bright green, bright
blue, bright pink, or bright purple, either singly or as the
predominant color in combination with other colors in any pattern,
as provided by federal regulations governing imitation firearms,
or where the entire device is constructed of transparent or
translucent materials which permits unmistakable observation of
the device's complete contents, as provided by federal regulations
governing imitation firearms."

Senator de Leon worked with the Los Angeles Chief of Police, Charlie Beck, to create this bill. They think that it will "protect Californians." Their perceived need for the bill is based on an event that was reported in December, 2010, in the Los Angeles Times. The story was about a 13-year-old Glassell Park boy who was shot and injured by a Los Angele Police Department officer. Officer Victor Abarca shot the boy, thinking that the boy was producing a real gun when ordered to surrender. According to the LA Times article, Lt. John Romero, police spokesman, "said the youth pulled the gun from his clothing in a motion consistent with drawing a weapon." It also said that the event occured after 7:50 PM in December, and that the officer was shining a flashlight on the boy.
I have not been able to find out if Officer Abarca thinks that he would have acted differently if the boy had pulled a brightly colored or clear gun from his clothing in a motion consistent with drawing a weapon.

This is a tragedy. It very easily could have resulted in a death. I cannot imagine what Officer Abarca is going through, or how terrible it would be for a police officer to find out they killed a child with an airsoft gun in a similar incident. I would be willing to completely give up playing airsoft if it would mean keeping such an event from occuring. That brings us to the question, "What would keep this from occuring again?" Would SB 798 keep this from occuring? Would compliance with current legislation and enforcement of already existing laws keep it from occuring. I noticed that no charges were filled against the injured boy or his two companions, despite the following:

Current law provides that sale of any BB device to a minor is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 6 months in county jail, a fine of up to $1,000, or both. (Penal Code § 19910.)
Current law provides that every person who furnishes any BB device to any minor, without the express or implied permission of a parent or legal guardian of the minor, is guilty of a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 6 months in county jail, a fine of up to $1,000, or both. (Penal Code § 19915.)
Current law provides that no person may openly display or expose any imitation firearm in a public place, as defined. (Penal Code § 20170.) A violation is an infraction punishable by a fine of $100 for the first offense, and $300 for a second offense. A third or subsequent violation is punishable as a misdemeanor. (Penal Code § 20180.)

In addition to these infractions, the youth did not comply with the insructions of the police officer. Would requiring adult airsoft players in mil-sim games, out of view of the public, to use brightly colored or clear guns result in the above laws being enforced or prevent an officer from firing when a dark figure in the night pulls a "gun from his clothing in a motion consistent with drawing a weapon" after being ordered to surrender? If it will, then please pass SB 798. Do we want police who are trained to act quickly in response to threatening movements to hesitate while acting based on the color of the weapon they may not be able to see? Some have even called this bill a "Cop Killer" bill. It seems the author of the bill is unaware of the many brightly colored real steel guns that exist ( We already have the laws in place that are obviously not enforced. More laws only hurt those of us citizens and parents who are repsonsible and law-abiding. We already have the laws in place that are obviously not enforced.

SAVE AIRSOFT!Dear Airsoft Enthusiast,

Our beloved hobby is once again under attack by politicians who have an incomplete understanding of the laws and regulations under which our hobby exist. California SB 798 was crafted as a kneejerk reaction to a tragic incident where a teenager was shot by a law enforcement officer after DELIBERATELY POINTING a "BB gun" at the the dark of night!

While we all recognize the utter stupidity of this action and agree with its Darwinistic ramifications, our wise lawmakers are seeking to protect the rest of us innocents by banning the sale, purchase, and commercial transaction of airsoft guns and other BB devices in the state of California unless the device is brightly colored in its entirety. Surely such coloration would have prevented this aforementioned incident in pitch black darkness...don't you think? No?

Even without considering the unfair punishment of hundreds of thousands of responsible and legal Airsoft gun owners in California in response to the actions of one stupid individual (I refuse to call him a "victim" as we are so wont to do these days...the victim is that poor policeman who had to use his gun in the line of duty), what is to prevent real dirtbags from coloring their real guns "brightly" in the commission of a crime so law enforcement officers will hesitate a split second, allowing said dirtbag to get off the first shot?

There are plenty of laws on the books regulating the sale and use of Airsoft guns, both federally and on the state level. These existing laws are specifically designed to make sure the user of the an Airsoft gun or other BB device treats their Airsoft gun exactly as if it were a real gun. To make Airsoft guns "brightly colored" is a major step backwards in terms of consumer protection, public safety, and law enforcement!

Below, you will find the following documents:

1) A document sent by Crosman Corporation to the California state Senator who sponsored SB 798:

2) A document sent to the Senator from SoftAir USA:

3) A petition letter for you to sign and mail or fax to Senator de Leon:

Please read these documents carefully as they will fully inform you of the circumstances surrounding this issue and the implications of this ill-considered legislation.

Encore une mesure qui ne servira à rien Smile
