Can someone show me where in the Firearms Act or the Criminal Code "uncontrolled firearms" show up?
I have yet to see uncontrolled firearm anywhere but on a CBSA "MEMO."
If you really want to get technical, airsoft guns as far as the criminal code and Firearms Act are concerned they are replicas. As far as the courts are concerned if used in a crime they are firearms, further a recent case in BC has determined that in "most" cases airsoft guns are not replicas.
They law is FUBAR, and airsoft is still as much as a grey area as it was 5 years ago.
