Sure that sounds like it makes sense... but I wouldn't want, and don't believe it should be right for police or anyone to show up and rip my apartment apart based on photographs or videos on the internet.

There are pictures of me (and video probably) with guns, I don't have a PAL, so I must be an illegal firearm owner and worth being warranted and searched, yes? You're a PAL holder, who also collects Airsoft guns. Someone sees a picture of you with a, I don't know, big ass gun, say a Barret, an Airsoft Barret, but who could tell? Soccer mom sees this picture of you with the pretend gun, calls the cops because her kid learns karate from you, cops check picture and registry and see you don't have a Barret registered and toss your home and place of business... sound fair? Sounds vaguely familiar too... (I don't know if that was true, it was just an example)

It seems to me that [seemingly] logical steps were skipped. Like using words first and freaking out later.
"War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend: the city of the Men of Numenor, and I would have her loved for her memory, her ancientry, her beauty, and her present wisdom. Not feared, save as men may fear the dignity of a man, old and wise." - J.R.R. Tolkien
