    Every once in a great while it’s fun to watch someone get chewed up by the Ca AWB. This is most definitely one of those times.

    If they stuck to selling their airsoft optics to airsoft users, they wouldn’t be banned from ever handling guns in California again.

    I would have imagined having an AW charge in CA would land you into prison for a good 5 years automatically, i guess not 🙂
