I'm not sure 'Toys' is the correct word here. They're labelled as firearms. Uncontrolled firearms, but still firearms. That's how the government/justice system will see them.
The US considers airsoft guns as toys. That's why they have the whole Orange Tip rule. Its also why ATF gets all anal about authentic trademarks on airsoft guns and why several M4 airsoft models are restricted there.
I actually think its better this way, since we don't have to deal with the whole orange tip and trademarks issue.
