This is why I'm NOT A FAN of big bores. They go waaaay beyond the niche that airguns fill. Usually just to show off what is able to be done.

Blurring the lines between airguns and powder burners? What did you think is going to happen? 

Now add YouTube to the mix with everyone trying to turn themselves into a celebrity with no regard for the consequences of everyone else. (See Demolition Ranch review of Airforce Condor ) Cringe!

I have thought this as well. Sooner or later, a politician will shine light on this on a national stage, whether it comes after a "mass shooting," or just out of sheer Marxism and boredom. We have schools that suspend elementary students for chewing their Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun. The UK already closely regulates air guns. New Zealand is already talking about more gun control after their latest shooting this week, and politicians in the U.S. are already getting blamed in the media for not knee-jerking to it. It is not ridiculous to think that someone like Diane Feinstein wouldn't add air guns to her expansive list of firearms that she wants to ban every few years. It would only take one incident with preparation (like the Las Vegas shooter) to potentially ruin it for everyone.
