This is christal clear that you must have the orange tip no matter what in CA.
This is a good example of State law that complies with Federal Law.
NY city has complete ban on airsoft guns. But this does not. It's a lot more restrictive than the Federal law, but these should be fine.
It requires airsofter to be 18 years of age. And it requires a sporting event to be certified or regulated.
What's completely out of the hands of this law is the completly toy like guns. Translucent, or in neon colors. Those are so obviously toys, you can display in public. Only display. Not to aim at people or threaten or carry out a bank robbery. Even if it's completely translucent, the bank people falsely believe it to be dangerous, you do the time.
I actually think it's a good law. Kids below 18 should play with completly toy-like guns. Event should be regulated. And airsoft guns should not be flashed in public. Practically that's all this law wants. Anybody with a common sense would follow these anyhow.
I only wish that in the sporting event, on the field only, the orange tip could be covered only during the time of the event. The CA law would be perfect otherwise.
