In the end, EastCoastAirsoft is just another greedy, opportunistic American business trying to make a quick buck off Canadians who don't know Canadian law.

Or maybe ECA believes that Canadian retailers are bribing Canada customs and the judicial system.
Gotta love the canadian law that considers airsoft to be a real menace to society. The new clearsoft guns with tinted receivers (especially the ones that are tinted black) make the gun look exactly like the real deal, and you have to be 5 meters away and know stuff about guns to tell the difference, especially since we don't force the orange tip. This makes the law ridiculous, having to cut down on the quality of the receiver for nothing, while also wasting time and money imposing sentences on honest people who are nowhere near criminals. This also has the effect of significantly raising the price of airsoft guns in Canada and slowing down the progress of this sport. Why not ban clearsoft too while we're at it?, they can be sprayed in black in less than a minute. Makes no sense.

And that's why I don't vote for "liberals" who seem to think honest citizens are a danger for themselves. Firearms act? Useless, money-consuming, non-working Registry System? No thanks.

It is only a matter of time before black tinted clearsoft guns make the news, get bashed by media stupidity and that airsoft gets restricted even further. I can see it coming already: "Airsoft promotes war and violence". They almost banned paintball in Germany because it supposedly "encouraged violence".

Wow, I sound really apocalytpic.
