We already are a target. 
In states such as Maryland and Massachusetts  they tried to
put Airguns in the same category as airsoft guns, there has been frequent attempts to have them banned or severely restricted. There reasoning was pubic safety some people where shot because they pointed a pellet gun at a police officer 
Two years ago at shot show I spent the whole week talkng with the people in the Airgun industry about the proposed ban. 
i am a little concerned about the push to increase Airgun hunting, if the anti gun people in Massachusetts knew what some Airguns could do they probably would be new legislation  created very quickly in Massachusetts 
i am all for increasing Airgun hunting but it could draw unwanted attention to our sport
just my opinion
