A Letter From Spartan Imports

Dear Airsoft Enthusiast,
Our beloved hobby is once again under attack by politicians who have an incomplete understanding of the laws and regulations under which our hobby exist. California SB 798 was crafted as a kneejerk reaction to a tragic incident where a teenager was shot by a law enforcement officer after DELIBERATELY POINTING a “BB gun” at the officer…in the dark of night!

While we all recognize the utter stupidity of this action and agree with its Darwinistic ramifications, our wise lawmakers are seeking to protect the rest of us innocents by banning the sale, purchase, and commercial transaction of airsoft guns and other BB devices in the state of California unless the device is brightly colored in its entirety. Surely such coloration would have prevented this aforementioned incident in pitch black darkness…don’t you think? No?

Even without considering the unfair punishment of hundreds of thousands of responsible and legal Airsoft gun owners in California in response to the actions of one stupid individual (I refuse to call him a “victim” as we are so wont to do these days…the victim is that poor policeman who had to use his gun in the line of duty), what is to prevent real dirtbags from coloring their real guns “brightly” in the commission of a crime so law enforcement officers will hesitate a split second, allowing said dirtbag to get off the first shot?

There are plenty of laws on the books regulating the sale and use of Airsoft guns, both federally and on the state level. These existing laws are specifically designed to make sure the user of the an Airsoft gun or other BB device treats their Airsoft gun exactly as if it were a real gun. To make Airsoft guns “brightly colored” is a major step backwards in terms of consumer protection, public safety, and law enforcement!

You will find accompanying this message a document sent by Crosman Corporation to the California state Senator who sponsored SB 798. Please read this letter carefully as it will fully inform you of the circumstances surrounding this issue and the implications of this ill-considered legislation. Then, sign your name on the attached petition letter and mail or fax it to Senator De Leon at the addresses below.
