A large portion of this decision turns on the definition of "Replica Firearm"

This judge has clearly handed down a decision that airsoft guns in general do not in his opinion meet that test.

Prior decisions have not to my knowledge brought into contention the requirement that in order for an object to be a replica firearm, it must also replicate the internal mechanism of a firearm.

The transfer of prohibited devices charges turn specifically on the defining of airsoft guns as Replica Firearms.

These charges were thrown out because in this judges opinion airsoft guns "fail miserably" to be replicas of firearms.

This is a very important decision.. and if not appealed could substantially change the status of airsoft guns in Canada.
