In which states are BB guns legal?

Answer

BB guns are legal in all states, and BB gun owners refer to the Second Amendment when it comes to BB gun laws at the state and local levels. State laws for BB guns vary by each state, but states such as Massachusetts and California have tougher laws. Federal law also determines who possesses BB guns.

Pellet Gun Zone discloses which states have no air gun laws, including Oregon, Idaho, Nebraska, Kansas, Louisiana, Alaska, West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio and Wyoming. New Mexico, Arkansas and Indiana are more states with no pellet gun laws. Other States with some form of pellet gun laws are North Dakota, New Jersey, Florida and Pennsylvania.

NRA-ILA notes Michigan in particular as a state with tougher BB gun laws. Michigan requires licensing and registration for BB gun purchases. People under the age of 18 are restricted to using their BB guns within the bounds of a yard, unless escorted by an adult. Pellet handguns also need to be licensed for conceal-carrying or storing in a car. Other states such as Rhode Island and New Jersey classify BB guns as real firearms. Minnesota also forbids the presence of any pellet gun in public. In New York, it is illegal for a person under the age of 16 to possess a BB gun. No person shall carry a BB gun in Connecticut.

FedLaw mentions that federal law also restricts a person from owning a BB gun. A person is barred from owning a BB in the event of certain criminal convictions, or if dishonorably discharged from the Armed Forces. Federal law also requires special markings for BB guns to allow law enforcement to distinguish between real and fake weaponry.
