To an extent, they're right and you're wrong.

The issue is that airsoft guns are currently by-and-large regarded as replica firearms. Replica firearms are prohibited devices. The law says one is not suppose to acquire prohibited devices without a proper licence (none which exists for individuals) or transfer prohibited devices to anyone other than a lawfully licenced business (thus excluding individual-to-individual sales).

Yes, there are no possession or use (in a responsible recreational manner) offences for prohibited devices. No, that does not mean other offences cannot exist.
