I'd be more worried if they were trying to figure out a way to tax Airsoft tbh, that would be dropped on us like guano in a bat cave. :mad:

BB levy. It'd be a 1c BB levy.

They may call it a hobby tax to catch everyone!!
The group would decide "how have they enough money to spend on this Airsoft hobby?" and we can then bare arms and raise fists like father jack!!

It's a bit cold for bare arms at the moment ... :pac:
EU 'Airsoft Ban'
Recently I've seen a campaign spreading across facebook which claims we should fight back against a proposed EU 'airsoft ban', which is purportedly spelled out in the recent white paper on firearms control (a paper which the European Airsoft Association contributed comments towards as it was being drafted).
This campaign seems to have originated with the website 'all4shooters'. The claims on this website (in relation to airsoft) [bear] no relationship to the conclusions of the white paper. The EC has expressed indifference to airsoft in the past and we've seen no evidence that airsoft is in their sights now, but if airsofters start writing heated, unfounded letters to the EC (as suggested in the article) you will undoubtedly give them a negative impression of airsoft and draw their attention.
So please, digest the evidence yourself, keep calm and play on!Matt Furey-King, President EAA
