The tips are only necessary for manufacturers, importers and stores, and they need to be in place to ship out of State. I've been told some cities have ordinances against removing or spraying the orange tip.This is a nationally accepted symbol identifying an airsoft gun. Why do it to a real gun, and can those reasons be accomplished equally as well by letters, email, phone calls, personal visits?
I've seen no law anywhere regulating the color of a real firearm. I believe that an orange tip on a real firearm may make a cop think twice before shooting. Ifa cop were to see me carrying a firearm I do not want that cop to shoot. If that cop sees my orange tipped firearm I believe that cop will think twice before shooting and could possibly save my life. Cops do shoot innocent people and anything which helps me not get shot by a cop is a good thing.
