This is a bit old (2019), but interesting nonetheless:

This one is a bit newer (2020):

And least we forget that airgun can be deadly (Fed. 2020, and Not for the point of heart!):

I have a Hill EC-3000 compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your tank as a courtesy (4,250 PSI limit).

I find this a bit disturbing:
Quote
While today’s air rifles feature increased accuracy, automatic capability, and the power of modern firearms, they are no longer a weapon of war; rather they are advertised to children as a recreational device.9,11

While some airguns might be marketed to kids, big bores? I kind of doubt it.

At any rate it is up to adults to educate themselves and their children, and make sure kids aren’t shooting while unsupervised.

Think if the Jewish pop had unregulated air guns. WW2 may have been very differant , but they gave up all there guns and weapons of any sort. In the end about 60,000 stole some , back from the regime and held out till the end. We must fight off any and all regulation or they will have our whamo's and rocks.
