The 5th Airsoft Players' Choice Awarsds Voting Period is now ongoing.
SB 798 Passed In California Senate. Goes To Assembly Vote
Dr. Airsoft reported that SB 798 has passed in the California Senate 21-16. This means that it has passed the hurdle and goes into the Assembly for a vote. It goes closer to becoming an official amendment to the Penalty Code which will make it mandatory for replica firearms to be featuring bright or translucent colors, and violations thereof would result into severe penalties.
So what does this mean? Clearly, for the US airsoft community to further intensify their campaign efforts to block such bill before it becomes an official California policy. Since it has hurdled the California Senate, the chances for it becomes even more brighter, and for the California airsoft community even bleaker.
If you are in California, or in the USA in general, and this issue affects you, it is very much imperative to show your opposition to SB 798.
