There are not many “new findings” from this abstract of a study from Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, Texas….involving injuries from improper use of what they term “nonpowder guns”…airsoft, BB, pellet and paintball guns & projectiles…Key Points presented at the American Academy of Pediatrics annual conference on October 25:

WEAR EYE PROTECTION AT ALL TIMES…

PARENTS NEED TO SUPERVISE USE BY MINORS…

AND, yet again, because many see these as “toys” and not “guns” (regardless of the supposition that airsoft and paintball guns are “powerful weapons causing increasingly severe and sometimes life-threatening injuries in pediatric patients….” yet another call to, you guessed it…legislate ‘guns.’

To wit we say…You can’t legislate away all risk, and you can’t legislate common sense. Period.
