First off – several people have asked who my staff talked to in the airsoft community who said they’d be willing to go along with the ends of airsoft guns being painted – e.g. dayglow orange. It was the people at www.saveairsoft.org
Second – I take the point that guns operating above 1 joule aren’t automatically lethal – and there’s clearly a lot of debate about the merits of 1 joule safety limit versus other limits. I’m listening carefully to these views and also passing them on to my colleague John Thurso who’s leading for the Lib Dems on this issue.
