Thanks for posting this, it sucks that it specifically mentions airsoft guns.
Practically-speaking, I don't think it matters whether the bylaw would stand up in court, etc etc. What matters is that it brings unwanted attention and unwanted heat. York region police are going to have marching orders to cause trouble for airsoft enthusiasts.
That, aside from speculation about the momentum that it adds to anti-airsoft measures elsewhere, is the key take-away here.
