It's 6:55 p.m., NOv. 28, and I'm watching the news. Here is what got me to posting: CIDG raids Divisoria Mall and confiscates replica Airsoft/Electric-powered guns. Now the CIDG wants Airsoft/Electric-powered guns to be issued with permits because, as one CIDG official put it, "they are firearms already" (can't quite remember the original words but the substance is here) and that dealers/stores wanting to sell these types of guns need to apply for an FED permit. GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!!!!! What in the Heck is going on with this type of crap? Airsoft/Electric-powered guns are for entertainment. Sure, they get used in violent crimes because most people don't know how to tell a toy gun from a real gun. But is it right to start registering them and treat them as such? Really, people, throw me a friggin' bone here! Am I missing something? Maybe I'm just overreacting here. But if you really want to stop crimes committed with Airsoft/Electric-powered guns, go after the criminals, not the "tools" they use. Besides, Airsoft/Electric-powered guns are useful in their own right: -they help introduce the concept of firearms safety to people not familiar with them; -Airsoft/Electric-powered gun enthusiasts help form groups that foster camaraderie and bonding by having weekend tournaments and the like; -they help relieve stress; -for gun owners, they help enforce the fundamentals whenever they can't go to the range. I could go on and on, but my point here is that we already have enough legislation to help curb down crime rates, what we should do is enforce them, not blame inanimate objects for our failures to bring them down. YMMV!
