Real or fake? Tragic encounters fuel debate over realistic-looking replica guns - LATimes.com

Real or fake? Tragic encounters fuel debate over realistic-looking replica guns - LATimes.com | Thumpy's 3D House of Airsoft™ @ Scoop.it | Scoop.it

"...But (Jordan) Baylon is playing on borrowed time. In September, Gov. Jerry Brown signed the Imitation Firearms Safety Act, which forbids nearly all types of pellet and BB guns from being shown in public unless they are fashioned in pink, red or another bright color.

Supporters celebrated the passage of the law, which goes into effect in January, saying it was a common-sense response to a long string of tragic encounters in which police shot teenagers who were holding realistic-looking replica guns...."

Thumpy Covey's insight:

Skims the surface of the debate...as all "big media" seems to do nowadays...but never asks hard questions or gets solid answers from anyone...and they used 3 reporters and the resources of one of the nation's bastions of journalism to get mush to their "audience/readers."  You are doing this all wrong, LATIMES...why do I alwys read that "Late to the Times?"

AIR STUPID! - Crime Stoppers of Oregon to Offer Rewards in New Campaign "Felons and Kids with Guns"

AIR STUPID! - Crime Stoppers of Oregon to Offer Rewards in New Campaign "Felons and Kids with Guns" | Thumpy's 3D House of Airsoft™ @ Scoop.it | Scoop.it

"Crime Stoppers of Oregon is announcing a new campaign to help in the fight against gun crime. Crime Stoppers of Oregon is offering a minimum $250 cash reward to anyone who reports a...."

Thumpy Covey's insight:

THIS COULD BE DANGEROUS for Cops and for Teen Airsofters!  Pay attention to this one!....  Crime Stoppers in Portland, Oregon wants to generate tips that lead to the arrest and conviction of felons  or TEENS UNDER 18 if someone "believes" they have a real firearm.  THUMPY's 3D believes this might lead to false tips that could result in a high-risk arrest situation involving teens with airsoft guns...akin to a "SWAT-ing" situation.   THINK ABOUT THIS...if a false tip about an airsoft gun results in police drawing weapons to search or "take down" an innocent kid, what will be the results? An officer-involved-shooting?  THIS IS BAD POLICY, and if you folks in the Oregon airsoft community...the guys and gals who just held the WINTER EXPO, for instance....are planning a response, please let THUMPY know so we can publicize what you are doing.


P.S.  The contact website address to turn in a kid is TIPSOFT.com!  COME ON PPD!  DANGER! DANGER! DANGER!


We DO stand behind LEO's and most Crime Stoppers programs...THUMPS has actually been involved in fundraising and organizational activities for many of the CS programs in eastern NC for more than 30 years....but this sounds like a well-meaning plan gone terribly astray in the name of "fighting gun violence."


To read the whole police, or to respond, just CLICK THE PIC for contact information with the Portland Crime Stoppers program.

NEWS FLASH FOR BELGIUM! - AIRSOFTERS ARE NOT TERRORISTS! - Lucid Mind via FACEBOOK

NEWS FLASH FOR BELGIUM! - AIRSOFTERS ARE NOT TERRORISTS! - Lucid Mind via FACEBOOK | Thumpy's 3D House of Airsoft™ @ Scoop.it | Scoop.it

"After the outrageous news item on VTM (the largest TV station in Belgium) depicting Airsofters as "terrorists" - the only excuse we got was that "it was impossible for them to see who was a terrorist and who wasn't" on our pictures ... so that they would keep on using these pictures in order to alert the population.


So let's help them out ... send them a picture of yourself during a game with the text "I AM NOT A TERRORIST, AIRSOFT IS A SPORT" to show them that we are sick and tired of being depicted as such ...
Send them your picture on 4040@vtm.be and share this message ... lets flood them with awesome sport pictures !..."

Thumpy Covey's insight:

Our buddy LUCID MIND has been fighting a battle with Belgium's largest TV NEWS CHANNEL...which apparently pulled photos and "allege" that an airsoft group in the Ardennes is a bunch of TERRORISTS!   We predict some pretty rugged times ahead for our brothers and sisters in gun-shy and shell/media-shocked Europe...IF WE DON'T ALL START PULLING TOGETHER AS ONE TEAM!  Je Suis AIRSOFTERS!

AIRSOFTERS ARE NOT TERRORIST FOLLOWUP! - Lucid Mind & Belgium 'Softers are heard! - Facebook | Thumpy's 3D House of Airsoft™ @ Scoop.it | Scoop.it

Dudes and dudettes, today was a good day for the airsoft community.


After my call to them-following the Verviers report-to demonstrate our displeasure (and those massive was succeeded), I was invited on the editing to make there to explain our vision.
Although their vision might not be totally in line with ours, they have given us the opportunity to clarify our view and was there also listened to us.
I am the first to put into action to shoot, but am the first to recognize instances when they do bother to want to hear the reply.
After a long and very constructive conversation follows a contextual clarification on channels VTM's News, which makes clear that it was never the intention has been to link terrorism to airsoft.
A clarification that is worthy of our recognition and respect.

I would therefore like to ask the mail to everyone-to discontinue action IMMEDIATELY on 4040@vtm.be. There was further responded to our cry, do with that action would be much like some natrappen and you know my position in it.. natrappen is man-unworthy.

Unfortunately it's not all Rainbows and unicorns.
It also appears that some of us need to go to the journalist deemed PERSONAL attacks and who to hold responsible for everything.
Let me just say that I am EXPRESSLY dissociate from those actions and condemn that may be EVEN MORE. 
It seems to me so obvious that that personal attacks are NOT DONE and that-anyone here guilty of makes-for my part should also no longer appear on the airsoftvelden. 
I am entrusted with the specify that we, as a community, can place us above such wantonnes.. so it seems to me no more or normal that I also 0 understand when they do within our own ranks for.


To this, best airsofters all over the place ....

"...Yet today, THE SAME PICTURES appeared again to boost the massive terrorist-paranoia that is dominating our country.

Every airsoft in Belgium and The Netherlands – obviously – is repulsed by the death and tragedy that has been created by some extremist punks BUT we would like to point out that :

- Airsofters are A-politic … we play a game, we don’t do politics.

- Airsofters play a GAME with TOYS … we do not play nor train with real weapons

- Airsofters are NON religious … what you believe is your personal business, we just play a game

- Airsoft is a sport for EVERYBODY, we do not discriminate and we do NOT tolerate racism !

Please help us in our cause, by sharing this message internationally … so that the complete community can distance itself from any form of extremism .. ...."
