Source, United States * Under Federal Law, ** Airsoft guns are not classified as firearms and are legal for all ages under federal law, as well as the laws in each state. However, in some major cities and population centers the definition of a firearm within their respected ordinances includes propulsion by spring or compressed air, thus subject to applicable laws. ** A 6 mm minimum orange tip must be present on the barrel end of the airsoft gun to identify it as such for any commercial sales. [1] Once sold, local laws may vary on whether or not the orange tip must be kept - in many places, no laws exist restricting one from removing or replacing the orange tip, but one should check the local laws before making such a modification. ** Airsoft guns' trademarks must be removed where the manufacturer does not have an existing license agreement with the manufacturer of the real fire arm. For example: Classic Army has a licensing agreement with Armalite, so the trademarks can stay on imported replicas of Armalite's weapons. In practice enforcement is hit or miss. You might get an "unlicensed" gun through customs with trademarks intact, while a licensed gun might be held in Customs by an uninformed customs agent. House Resolution 607, sponsored in early 2007, would change this if passed, allowing imports to retain trademarks even if there is no agreement between the real firearms manufacturer and the replica manufacturer.[2] ** In addition, the similarity between genuine firearms and airsoft replicas is close enough to provoke interaction with local law enforcement personnel if an airsoft gun is carried openly in public. ** If someone were to, for example, attempt a robbery with an airsoft gun, they would be charged as if the airsoft gun were a real firearm.[citation needed] * New York City requires that all realistic toy or imitation firearms be made of clear or brightly colored plastics; furthermore, New York City makes possession of any pistol or rifle or similar instrument in which the propelling force is a spring or air, unlawful without a license. See New York City Administrative Code § 10-131(b) and New York City Administrative Code § 10-131(g)(1)(a)[3]. The rest of New York State is unaffected by these laws, and there are no state regulations limiting or prohibiting airsoft. * Michigan allows the purchase of Airsoft guns. However, they must have an orange tip on the barrel. * Texas allows Airsoft guns to be owned but most cities require that the Airsoft guns be discharged only while outside city limits. * Some cities in Illinois considers shipping or distributing airsoft guns illegal. It is officially now not illegal to remove the red top of the airsoft gun * According to New Jersey state law, airsoft guns are classified as firearms, and therefore, must follow state firearm laws regarding posession and purchase. Due to this, "technically", airsofts are legal in New Jersey. If you are going to play, you must do so on a private property. TAKE SPECIAL NOTE ON THE FACT THAT YOU MUST TREAT AN AIRSOFT GUN LIKE A REAL GUN IN PUBLIC, NEVER TAKE IT OUT OF IT'S CASE UNLESS YOU ARE >>>INSIDE<<< YOUR HOME OR AT AN AIRSOFT FIELD. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL GET YOU ARRESTED OR SHOT (BY REAL STEEL)
