you are lucky they didn't storm your apartment guns drawn, and arrest everyone in it.

it is not a right to own anything in Canada, it's a privilege. abuse it and you loose it.

I love guns for their engineering and for sport target shooting.

I am a prompt tax payer and loyal citizen - I make a lot of money per year and give almost half of it to the government.

I deserve to own toy guns if I wish.
entitled brat much? you lost your ownership privileges the second you stepped out onto your balcony and fired. (discharging an uncontrolled/replica firearm is illegal within city limits) be thankful all you got was a warning and your toys taken from your irresponsible hands.

What can I do? Speak to a lawyer?
being as they specifically told you to stay away from airsoft, i think you should be fine with paintball.. so long as you don't do anything stupid/illegal with it.
