Actually, that was a good article

clearly some "detail" errors,

but you can't expect someone who does not know anything about weapons to get it right.

Written for people who know nothing about weapons the choice of terms and descriptions makes complete sense.

Also the police concerns were clearly articulated.

Really there is no good "reason" for people not employed in the entertainment industry to own replica firearms.. other than from a hobby sense, so that statement is 100% on.

The largest error made in this article is the statment that replicas are not regulated, where in fact the legal ownership and clear parameteres on their use is very clear in the Criminal Code of Canada.

If anyone wanted to point out a correction .. it would be that there are already clear and restrictive regulations and laws in place for replica firearms.. we don't need any more regulation.

We do need people to understand them.
