Unfortunately, this is not the first case of its kind. I have always had a fear, that the proliferation of replica (CO2 pellet) handguns were going to have a negative impact. This is one facet of that impact. Another is, the anti crowd will use these (acts of violence) to limit our enjoyment of the hobby. Maybe we need a National Airgun Association?

I think this is exactly the case. So far as I can tell, NRA and other 2A supporters see airguns as  just a gateway to "real " guns, mostly for minors.  It is hard to raise a voice over the polarized national firearm discussion.
