Granted it might cause more issues due to the inherent variations not being taken into account that could see much more variation at that low energy, but i'm not holding out much hope given the level of thinking about the law anyway. If they're not listening to the gun lobby in the first place, I don't think they're going to start later.
I'm hoping that when the Scottish legislators start looking at this they will realise that will have to have a defined start and finish point. They will also have to have a determined test to find if a "toy" should be licenced or not.
Airsoft and Paintball will also have to be addressed.
It seems to be the only thing open to us at the moment where the legislation will have to be considered.
