    Yeah, do you have a source?
    This is kind of bad, not in the fact that it's going to make a big difference for me, but just that airsoft is getting a bad name.

    ditto and a little nub whose caught up in some rumor his parents made to discourage airsoft. I would have seen something on Channel 2 usually it has to be pretty serious for it to be banned.

    i looked it up online, its not really an airsoft ban... just doesnt let you shoot stuff on other peoples property, but its not airsoft specific, and there are laws like that everywhere

    Discharging of rifles-
    Twice in two weeks we have had to deal with the discharging of pellet guns or a firearm inside one of our communities.
    I am unable to find any law that would restrict a person from the carrying of a rifle or shotgun through our communities. The laws deal mainly with the possession of handguns or pistols. But, there are laws in place that restrict the discharging of any such weapon.
    Below is the Cobb County Ordinance on such discharging of a weapon.
    Sec. 86-5. Weapons discharge.

    (a) It shall be unlawful for any person to discharge a firearm, air rifle, pellet gun, slingshot, crossbow or other similar device into or over property belonging to another person or entity without first obtaining written permission from that person or entity.
    (b) In addition to the penalty provided for in § 86-1, if the person charged with violating this ordinance is a minor, it will be within the discretion of the officer issuing the citation to issue a warning. If this is done, a duplicate of the warning will be sent to the minor’s parents or legal guardian by certified mail.
    (c) The provisions of this section shall not apply to:
    (1) Persons who discharge one of these devices in defense of person or property;
    (2) Law enforcement officers in the performance of official duties;
    (3) Military forces of this state or the United States in the performance of official duties.
    In addition, Georgia Criminal Code 16-5-60, Reckless Conduct says-
    16-5-60.

    Yeah I think that falls under the "Common sense" section of our brains that they have to make laws for. This is not a ban.

    [quote="scooter"](a) It shall be unlawful for any person to discharge a firearm, air rifle, pellet gun, slingshot, crossbow or other similar device into or over property belonging to another person or entity without first obtaining written permission from that person or entity.

    That rule pretty much applies to most city ordinances, and it does include Airsoft (make the "Toy" argument all you want, it doesn't matter). I really wish parents and adult airsofters would brand this into their brains. When violations involving airsoft make the news it's one more black-eye on the sport. All their doing is working toward restrictive/permanent bans on the guns and creating a public perception that airsoft is nothing but trouble.
