California assemblyman DeLeon has put forward bill SB798, This bill, if passed, prohibits, "...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."
This bill will affect not just airsoft guns in california, but any that are shipped THROUGH california. Thus meaning that many, if not all, guns sent to retailers after this bill passes will be required to be painted in ome form of 'safety' color.
There is only 3 more days before the bill is voted on, and we need people to contact the assemblymen in california to voice the fact that airsoft guns are not toys, and should not be treated as such. That airsoft guns deserve, and require the same amount of safety precautions as the real thing. you can find all of the necessary information to contact those people in the link below. Please be polite, and courteous when contacting the politicians. But also do not believe them if they tell you the bill has been dropped, and that we can rest easy. They need to understand we will not be walked over, or ignored. The more people contact them, the better.
R&R mode engaged after BHIII. To all the STL (and surrounding) Who fought for the coalition. My hat goes off to you. You fought the good fight and while the UFS might have pushed us back this time, It will only fuel the fire to burn them down with next year. Gamblers are already preparing!
The admins (especially myself, and refuge) will be very busy for a while preparing for BH2 so it may take a few days to answer or reply to PM's and threads. Please be patient. In the meantime ranger is around frequently and he can relay things to us if need be.
