Already compose almost 50% of weapons seized in most arrests here in Toronto.
Most of the gang members "carrying" are toting replicas.
A telltale bulge under the shirt.. or the gangland "flash" of a weapon is about intimidation .. and a replica works as well as a real gun for that.
A recent sweep of gang members yielded a haul of some 24 "prohibited weapons" of which 14 were replicas.
Replica firearms are already proscribed under the law...they are already "illegal" if improperly used.
There is no need to worry about "airsoft being made illegal" there are enough laws to serve the public good for abusers of airsoft weapons.
