To all airsoft players of the EU: Your action is required

Airsofters: You can do something!

To all airsoft players of the EU: Your action is required

Important to all airsoft players of Europe. Your action is required! NOW!

After the horrific attacks in Paris the the European Commission has expressed the desire to adopt:

* Compulsory Registration for Airsoft Replica's
Not registering you airsoft replica's will result in criminal penalties and a criminal record.

The European Commission wants to amend the EU firearms directive so as to classify any replica with the form of a firearm as a Category C weapon, this would mean they would at a minimum fall into the same category as most hunting rifles and shotguns in your respective home countries.

Needless to say with the amount of airsoft replica's on the market such a measure would be turning millions of EU citizens in to criminals over night. Airsoft players are in no responsible for the attacks in Paris! And you cannot stop terrorists by punishing law abiding EU citizens!
