Say No to SB 798

Dear Members,

Airsoft is once again under attack in California with the proposal of a new California Bill SB798 that will require all airsoft guns to be colored entirely in a bright color. Obviously, if this law is passed, it will be detrimental for airsoft Milsim and Reenactment enthusiasts in California, but additionally around the entire United States due to the fact that almost 90% of airsoft products that enter into the US pass through California. Additionally, making airsoft guns more toy-like in appearance may have the opposite effect in safety awareness among young users, parents, and new users unfamiliar with airsoft, or general gun safety.

The national airsoft industry is unanimously against CA Bill SB798 and are contacting the California state government to voice their opposition to this bill. However, this is not enough. YOU, the airsoft players, need to make YOUR voice heard in this argument.

At the bottom of this letter is a link to our website which we designed for the sole purpose of stopping this bill. ( Our site has the simplest way to directly contact senators so that they can hear your voice. We constantly update the site so that as additional legislators view the bill they are added to the email list. We will be posting this letter on your forum and hope that you can support us in the protection of our sport.

What is SB 798?

California SB 798 -
In short, wanted all the bb gun, pallet gun, airsoft gun, paintball guns in California to be completely orange, pink, yellow, white, blue or green.

SB 798 Bill
It is referred as the "Cop Killer Bill" because it is forcing our law enforcement personnels to second guess a weapon merely due to it's color.
The bill quoted an unfortunate incident that happened at 7:50pm December 2011. The "motion to draw" and "disobeying law enforcement" caused the miss-fortunate. Isn't it clearly an parenting issue? Bad people can get into trouble with a rock or a fork.
Lets paint all the "replicas" pink so we know they are not real?
Real Fire-arms are painted into many different colors. Try Google.
If you are outside of California, this is "your business" because it will spread and effect your tax money and freedom.
Airsoft guns are sold strictly to adults over the age of 18. If a mother of a 13 year old lets her son borrow her car, do we need to ban cars?
SB 798 will accomplish nothing but "spend more of our tax money."

Painting replicas orange or pink will not stop bad parenting and stupidity!!

There have been literally 5 of these already... Grease Man created the official one, most show up RIGHT under your post...
It's all about the pouches.

Why feel the need to justify anything to others? You made the decision, nobody except for you can judge that.
