New California Airsoft Law (SB 798)

There is a new bill in California's senate suggesting that ALL airsoft guns in California be colored neon colors such as pink, blue, purple, green, or see through. How does this effect Alaska's airsoft? Because the majority of all airsoft products go through California first and then are shipped to other parts of our country, those guns have to be colored bright colors since the origin is California. If this bill passes, it would be the downfall of realistic airsoft and replicas. The airsoft industry will slow down significantly. I am an airsofter in California since 2007 and i do not support this bill.
This bill was created to protect people from violence but in this effort, it is actually going to negatively affect business, crime, real military training, and our fun of airsoft!!
Since Alaska is out of state, here is a link.{{{{ http://senate.ca.gov/senatedistricts }}}} you may find, call, email, letter, start a pitition, do whatever is necessary to stop this bill from happening. Tell other groups in Alaska, tell other fields, tell paint ballers, tell your friends. If this bill is passed in California, everybody will be affected, not just us. Evike.com and other retailers are fighting this bill. Please feel free to ask questions. The facebook page is "No On California SB 798". WE MUST STOP THIS BILL FROM HAPPENING!!!

I am completely against this bill...I am willing to sign any petition against it if someone rights one up...This bill will cause more harm then good. By making airsoft gun look like toys people will be less cautious around airsoft guns and less likely to follow basic airsoft safety procedures. Airsoft guns are not toys and they should not look like toys.
