California SB798 defeated

• SB 798, which would have required that all BB and pellet guns — including those legally used for hunting wild turkey and small game — be manufactured with brightly colored exteriors to help identify them as “toy” guns.

This bill was defeated in the Assembly Public Safety Committee by a 2-5 vote.

Passage of the measure would have resulted in a loss of hunting opportunity and wrongly encouraged children to treat air guns like toy guns, creating significant safety issues

  1. Without that SB798 bill, all electric airsoft rifles, spring airsoft rifles, spring airsoft pistols, and BB guns would be easily mistaken for a real firearm and someone could end up getting killed because of it.
