Cracking Down on Air Guns

In the UK.  I agree they aren’t toys, but I used to run around with air guns when I was a kid, and never managed to shoot anybody, destroy property, or get accidentally shot by police.

I’m sympathetic to the notion that you don’t want a bunch of miscreant teenagers running around destroying property with air guns, but from reading the article you’d think they were talking about drugs or something.

  1. Sebastian,
    I used to go everywhere with my bb gun when I was a kid. Never had any issues.

    “I’m sympathetic to the notion that you don’t want a bunch of miscreant teenagers running around destroying property with thrown rocks” (As much as I hate to do FTFY).

    In fact, for a lot of cases, the thrown rock will be more damaging and dangerous to life and limb.

    The right thing is not to police the object, but the behavior.
