Interesting read. But would it really help to control and regulate even more? Don't want to start a political debate here, but does it help with firearms? Criminals don't obey the laws, period. And uneducated and irresponsible people do act foolishly. In the ''heat'' of the action, even a wood plank shaped like a handgun and painted black could be mistaken for the real thing by a police officer. It's not the guns that kills..., peoples are peoples. >JMHO<

Just a few days ago I was thinking of selling a few of my air pistols. I think I'll hold on to them now. They may handle this like they have folding pocket knives. Folding knives are legal to own, but CBSA decided we they will not allow them to be brought into the country. We don't even need laws anymore, just unelected bureaucrats to decide what we should, or shouldn't be allowed to buy.
But I'm not going to get political. :rolleyes:

Should be play stupid games, win stupid prizes. You want to point a can't tell if its real or fake gun at someone. Expect the outcome to not be great.

But like firearms, they just need a stupid reason to ban them. Because criminals you know don't follow no laws.

It looks only limited to the replicas ( imitation guns)?!

How about the other non-replicas?!

Or it's included all pellet guns/ BB guns / air guns ?

So, no guns allowed, only to the good ppls and right! Criminals no need to follow these rules.....

From the article:
"The Canadian Medical Association also has called for curbs on unregulated low-velocity firearms – such as pellet and paintball guns – after research showed several hundred children and youths were injured by them over a five-year period."

Right! Or maybe more relevant for young people, how about bicycles? No license required for them. I wonder how many kids were injured or killed on them over 5years hey!

I really don't need an excuse, but this is as good as any....

Guns of The Old West did another write up on the Umarex pellet SAA- this one being the 7 1/2" gold/chrome...
I'd still like a 7 1/2" in black finish, even though velocity is identical to the 5 1/2"~ both wear the same internal bbl length.

We all know they want a full ban on guns. Or why else would they only target legal firearm owners?
