An adult get shot brandishing an airsoft gun, and it's his own fault because he should have known better. He is accountable for his own actions.
A kid get shot brandishing an airsoft gun, and it's the airsoft guns fault because it looked to much like a real gun. Don't even consider that his ACTIONS were what got him shot.
Also, there are multitudes of stores that sell airsoft guns to underage kids. I was at a trinket shop in Depoe Bay yesterday, and witnessed the owner sell a UHC spring pistol to a kid no more than 9 years old. After the transaction, I approached the woman and informed her that what she had done was illegal (myself, my fiance, and the owner were the only other people in the store). She said she didn't care, and that she sold at least 5 airsoft guns a week. She said that the police were to busy to do anything about it, and it was steady income into a shop that was very seasonal.
