I'm getting sick of seeing Airsofts called Pellet and BB guns in the media, seems to be happening daily now.


Pellet Gun That Looked All-Too-Real Led To Police Shooting



January 11, 2006

PIERCE COUNTY - State troopers say when an 18-year-old pulled a gun on them, they did what they're trained to do: shoot back.

But here's the twist. The gun wasn't real. Yet the trooper had no way of knowing because the pellet gun looked very real.

When 18-year-old Michael Cleveland's car spun to a stop Monday morning after a three county high speed chase, the State Patrol says he pulled a gun on a trooper.

The trooper fired first, and shot Cleveland twice. Luckily, the wounds weren't fatal.

Investigators tell us they got a shock when they found the gun in Cleveland's car. It was only a pellet gun that shoots hard plastic BB's.

But, "any police officer working out on the road who has this particular weapon pointed at him would definitely make the assumption that he has the right to use lethal force, because of how real this firearm looks," said Trooper J.J. Gunderman.

The pellet gun is in this display of real guns. But can you find it?





It's the second one from the left. Troopers say it's an exact replica of a Mac 12 handheld sub machine gun, capable of firing 1,600 rounds per minute on full auto.

The law says pellet guns are supposed to have orange markings so nobody will think they are real. But troopers say criminals paint them black to get a more authentic look.

And they told KOMO 4 News more kids are buying them and having pellet gun wars.

"But in reality, it is not an innocent gun," Gunderman said. "This gun looks like a real gun and it can easily be mistaken for a real gun and can have some tragic results as was the case on Monday morning."

Troopers want parents to stop buying pellet guns for their kids. Because to a cop in that life-or-death moment, they all look real.

The suspect is still hospitalized. When he's released, he'll likely be charged with assault on a police officer and several other crimes.

remember when laser tag was yanked from the shelves for a while then sold for real cheap (like 1/10th the price)?????
a kid pointed it at a cop and got killed - it does not have to look real to scare a cop into shooting you

Yeah, there'll be a law because of this stupid dip shit.

Sure, that thing "looks" real, but what if it was made out of wood? Would they ban wood?

Probably

Lesson of the decade...point something at a police officer that looks like a gun and you're probably going to get shot. Doesn't take a genious to figure that one out.

then restrict them to individuals under adult supervision, just like long guns and handguns.

If you don't think there is anything wrong with allowing potentially immature children to get their hands on facsimile rifles without prior adult approval, then that is where you and I disagree.

I don't see the problem here ?

He pointed the gun at an officer, and got shot. Darwin principal.

In Australia they are banned completely

In New Zealand there are considered Toys, anyone can get them, there is not 'orange' requirement.
However if you commit a crime with a 'replica' then the punishments are them same as a real gun
In this case he could be charged with presenting a firearm, maybe even threatening the life of an officer.

All I am trying to say is that a cop should not have to worry about, or deal with the guilt, of shooting a kid or an adult because they had an airsoft gun, not a real one. I support opening up gun ownership to more people, but I do not thing that a toy gun should look like a real gun, it just causes too many problems.

Its not the look that causes the problem. It the idiot holding it...(and pointing it at cops)

Many years ago, there was a cop in a big city out east (Phiily? P'Burg?) that entered an apartment that had been locked from the outside (padlock) because a neighbor had heard someone inside.

While searching the unit (in uniform and after identifying himself) he entered a bedroom and saw soemone pointing a gun at him. He fired, and struck center mass...


of a 4-7 year old, who was "protecting" his house with a cap pistol after being locked inside by him mom while she was at work.



IIRC, stories like that were the reason we got away from the "realistic" toys of my youth, and adopted the "idiot orange" tips on everything.

Of course, even at 13 (when they started the coloring), I wondered to a friend that if someone was using a toy to committ an offense, wouldn't they just spray paint over the orange?

25 years later, idiots still find ways around the padding we, as a society, put up to protect them from themselves.

And people doubt Darwin.

I remember that movie with Tom Selleck - I think it was called an innocent man. The cops did a drug raid on the wrong house and there is ol' tom steppin out of the shower, he hears the JBTs bust in and walks into the hallway carrying his hairdryer. Blam - he is shot and when the cops realize they shot an innocent man, they frame him by placing a real gun in his hand and stashing cocaine at his house. He does some jailtime and I forget what happens - I cant remember if he gets out and kicks some ass or what.

And I will got back to "my" quote...You CAN NOT regulate stupidity!

If people can buy something...no matter what it is, it will be misused. If you ban it, it will be made. If you "regulate" it to certain people, others will steal it.

Wouldn't it be better to get parents and adults "involved" in childrens lives, BEFORE they make stupid decisions like this 18 year old did? Banning things doesn't do ANY good. Getting involved and TEACHING kids responsible, "smart" behavior does. If more people, even if they aren't the parent, got involved in a posititive way with kids like this, they would be more "likely" to avoid getting shot by the police. You can't save everyone, but people need to get more involved with others on a positive level.

And you just want to ban. I would suggest that you take a good "internal" look at yourself and see if those aren't really "control" issues you are dealing with, instead of well thought out logical thoughts.

I dont know I think they are already regulated like other airguns. becouce comeone they are airguns just shoot a 6mm plastic bb instead of a steel or lead bb.
just no one enforces it much.
