Why must bb and pellet air guns always be treated the same respect as firearms?

Many modern 'BB' or Pellet guns will shoot a projectile at close to standard firearm speeds. You can buy a combo BB/pellet gun at big family stores for under fifty dollars that have a velocity of eight hundred feet per second. A lower velocity pistol is often only 60-100 feet per second faster. While the projectile in the BB/pellet guns is very small and light, it could easily pierce skin or eyes. So it can be very dangerous if mishandled. But so can many other things, so the importance of BB/pellet guns is to use them to teach safe handling of a firearm to prevent accidents.
