Please don’t pander to people trying to shut down a sport they don’t understand.
There is nothing wrong with airsoft or paintball, and there are strict rules in place for safety that community sticks to and upholds.
Please stop allowing the misinformed to have a platform to spread hate based on opinions and feelings rather then facts.
Eighty per cent of violent gun crimes are with smuggled guns, not toys or sports equipment.
Personally I don’t find lots of things people do as “recreational” but I don’t let me opinions get in the way of their joy.
If the press allows feelings and opinions to rule over truth and facts, you’re paper is no better then a tabloid.
