Personally I’d like to see more green.  Blue is a good start though.

Sit back and be thankful it wasn’t you:

And even better, learn what NOT to do.

Canadian tourist Ken Lloyd bought the nine-inch model soldier holding a replica SA80 rifle during a visit to the Royal Signals Museum at Blandford Camp, Dorset.

But when he tried to take the #135 keepsake through Gatwick Airport in his hand luggage it triggered a security alert at the scanners.

Officials declared the moulded gun could not go on the plane because it was a ‘firearm’.

*Phew* Thank god they’re paying attention in London. God knows what could have happened on that flight.

For a while now we have known that the ATF has had an interest in airsoft guns which they claimed could be turned into real firearms.  We discussed it extensively in the following three posts:

Well it looks like our “calling out” of the ATF to prove their case, finally got a response.  The results are what I expected, but hoped would not be the case.

The ATF response letter, dated May 19, 2010 (Click to enlarge):

I know nothing about airsoft rifles at all, but the letter is apparently regarding the JG M4 airsoft rifle (a copy of the Western Arms M4 GBB design). I am not sure if the WE TTI M4 shipment that was confiscated in Tacoma is still under investigation.

What does this letter mean for the (thousands of?) American kids who own these airsoft rifles? My guess is that if they do not destroy them immediately they will be violating federal law and their parents who are responsible for them could face long prison sentences, and/or substantial fines.

How are the majority of the owners of these airsoft rifles even going to find out that they are in violation of federal law? Who knows…

Pretty ridiculous if you ask me.  Why was this not decided as soon as the first shipment of these airsoft rifles hit our shores? Making people into criminals after the fact is not fair.

What do you guys think?

Great advice in this infographic.  A lot more accurate than that one I posted a couple days ago.

This is the kind of thing that should be handed out to people at safety courses. Some people like myself are more visual learners, so this works a lot better than just reading some text.

Even at $20+ per car for admission to the National Parks I have been to, in my opinion it’s worth every penny.

If the money is what has been holding you back, the fees are waived for a week, from Saturday April 17th until the 24th. (Source)

Go get some fresh air and exercise, and don’t forget to bring your gun.
