It's important to remember whats fun about Nerf is shooting other people. You can do this because they're toys and relatively safe, all things considered.
All things said and done I don't want my kids playing with replica guns and airsoft is more designed for the sepo gun culture.

Currently, to purchase an airsoft gun from the only store, you need to be older than 21. That will stop kids from playing/owning guns.
On a final Note;
No one is saying that it will be a forced replacement for nerf, in fact if/when airsoft becomes fully legal I will still participate in both.
If it were to be made legal, the australian government will police it in a similar way to paintball, and possibly have "two-tone" laws similar to the UK.
