A free society doesn't require a "reason" to own anything. The government should have no business looking at what citizens choose to spend their own money on.

where in fact the legal ownership and clear parameteres on their use is very clear in the Criminal Code of Canada... it would be that there are already clear and restrictive regulations and laws in place for replica firearms
You have a funny definition of clear parameters so far as our firearms laws are concerned, considering you have to be a near-expert in both the FA and CCC to make sense out of any of them. The fact that almost everything in the act requires an extensive amount of research and cross referencing with the CCC to make sense shows that the laws aren't clear at all. Stop being such a smartass.

Not sure how offering a differing opinion is being a "smartass".

Our society is free up to the point you rub up against the fences..Free, like sheep are free to roam all over the field they are put in.. but there are still fences to keep them in.

Participants in the airsoft community are rubbing up against one of those fences.

I have done the research and the cross referencing between the Act and the CCC, and to me it is clear.
