    Owning airsoft guns and playing airsoft is legal in most parts of the world. Some countries have specific restrictions,[8] such as maximum muzzle velocity and "unrealistic" colouring to distinguish them from actual firearms. They are legal throughout the U.S, but restrictions do exist in certain cities such as Chicago, Illinois and Detroit, Michigan. The states of New Mexico, New Jersey, and Michigan, however, do not allow airsoft guns to be used or handled publicly because of the resemblance to real firearms. They may be used on private property with the consent of the owner. The Customs and Border Protection FAQ page states that Airsoft guns are considered look-alike firearms which require the special blaze orange marking. In October 2013, a 13 year old boy carrying an Airsoft replica assault rifle was shot and killed by deputies in Santa Rosa, California. http://en.wikipedia.org/...
