It can't be an unrestricted firearm, airsoft guns can not meet the FPS/Muzzle energy requirements to meet the classification of an unrestricted firearm.
because they are an object that fires a projectile with sufficient force to cause significant injury they do meed the criminal code definition of a firearm. but they are not subject to the storage or transport regulations that proscribed firearms are.
this is not a change in law it is a clarification of an existing law. there is nothing new here.
