In Nevada, it was a sense issue. What sense does it make for any felon to have any gun. And they mean it. A nail gun is about all a felon is supposed to have in his/her possession. Think about it from the cops' POV, say a traffic stop on your way home from a game. Harmless. He/she runs your plate, it comes back as registered to you, an ex-felon. That officer INSTANTLY escalates his/her response level upon seeing you, an ex-felon in camo WITH (read:any) A Gun. That officer doesn't care if it is a BB gun or not. They now blow the top off of their escalation-o-meter. You, the ex-felon, are now staring down the barrel of a REAL gun, wielded by officer X. You go down, at least right then, for a FIP. You can explain to to the judge why you, an ex-felon, was in possession of (any) A Gun. So, in my book, it's up to you to decide. Does it make sense for a felon in Nevada to own an airsoft gun?
(for the record, Nevada is a good ol'boy state. Run by liberals and EVERYONE has a gun and 1 in 4 has a CCW)
