So there, not a firearm.
He is stating that if a airsoft gun was not a "uncontrolled firearm", and that you do not have to call your local police to move a airsoft rifle because its "uncontrolled", nor do you need to put a trigger lock on it because its a "uncontrolled" firearm.
Which is outright wrong, because non-restricted firearms, aka a "controlled" classification of firearms, do not need either of those 2 conditions to transport them. And restricted firearms do need a locking mechanism attached while in transport, but thanks to LATT's they do not need a call to the local Police station to move them for quite a long time.
