State Lawmakers Consider Regulating Airsoft Guns Following Teen's Death

The airsoft gun industry could see new regulations and oversight following the death of a thirteen year old Santa Rosa boy who was shot and killed last week after police mistook his airsoft gun for a real firearm. Although recent attempts at state regulation have failed, lawmakers are considering new efforts to regulate the use of airsoft guns. Meanwhile, airsoft gun users say there are ways to circumvent what little regulation exists over the use of imitation weapons. Alex Kekauoha reports from Fremont.
