BOXER TAKES ON AIRSOFT! - To prevent more deaths like Tamir Rice's, senator introduces fake-gun bill in D.C. - CLEVELAND.COM

BOXER TAKES ON AIRSOFT! - To prevent more deaths like Tamir Rice's, senator introduces fake-gun bill in D.C. - CLEVELAND.COM | Thumpy's 3D House of Airsoft™ @ Scoop.it | Scoop.it

"Sen. Barbara Boxer, a Democrat, already asked the Consumer Product Safety Commission to require bright paint or fluorescent strips on airsoft guns, the kind that 12-year-old Tamir had. But the safety agency lacks power to make the requirement cover B.B. guns or similar toys, Boxer said.

"No child should ever die because a police officer or anyone else mistakes a toy gun for a real weapon," Boxer said in a statement. "This legislation will protect our kids and help law enforcement by making sure that imitation firearms cannot be mistaken for real firearms."

Under federal law, airsoft pellet guns – but not B.B. guns -- are already supposed to have a painted orange piece on the tip that signifies they are toys, according to Boxer's office. In 1994, the chairman of the Consumer Product Safety Commission challenged the toy industry to stop making fake firearms that look real and applauded stores that stopped selling them...."

Thumpy Covey's insight:

California nonsense transferred by Anti-gun Senator Boxer to the halls of Congress.  This has now become a NATIONAL FIGHT, Airsofters....Players, Industry, Sites and Games...we all need to pull together with a strong voice!

"....And on guns, two controversial bills. One making it an offense if a person uses a fake gun to commit a felony. Even more timely after last weekend, where an Omaha Police officer tweeted a picture of an airsoft pellet gun in comparison to a real gun...."

Thumpy Covey's insight:

OMAHA had that terrible shooting in 2014 involving the COPS TV show crew at a fast-food restaurant...and this is what needs to happen, to get the point across that if you misuse airsoft with bad intent...you are going to be treated as a MAJOR CRIMINAL!...WATCH THE VIDEO STORY from WOWT....

GREAT COVERAGE, with PHOTS and VIDEO on recent training for an "active shooter" incident in Ohio!....want to see how it CAN be done, effectively...and how the odds can favor intended targets (never "victims," if you use A.L.I.C.E. techniques, as these people are!)  WATCH AND SHARE!

"...Police discovered later that he was carrying an airsoft gun, which can shoot pellets, but not bullets, Esparza said.


"We don't know his motive or why he challenged the officers or approached them in the first place," Esparza said. "It was very erratic behavior by the suspect, very unusual...."

Thumpy Covey's insight:

Not sure there was much the officers could have done...other than explore the earlier interaction they had with the 32-year old man and how it was handled...but with the pressures facing inner-city cops right now, its anyone's guess how this could have gone down differently.  One bad.
