14. So New Jersey and Rhode Island consider them firearms

and thus weapons. None of the info you provided shows any other law defining BB guns to be weapons. They are not considered weapons by the feds or other states.

Centerville gun shop owner John Thyne says they should be considered weapons.

I'm sorry, but I do not consider a gun shop owner to be an authoritative legal cite. I can find a gun shop owner that will say BB guns should not be considered weapons, especially here in Texas, where they are not.

I'll go along with you in saying that BB guns can be dangerous, and should be treated with respect and in a safe manner, just like many tools, but I will not consider them weapons, to be regulated as such, and are certainly not firearms (regardless of what New Jersey or Rhode Island legislators say.)
