"no... against law... nothing more..."... ... save us all some time and patiences

It already is.. against the law.. the criminal code.. No one under the age of 18 can have replica firearms in their possession. full stop, I can't figure out why people put up with minors now... they can't own airsoft.. so how can they participate!!!???

Also practically every municipality has laws against the discharge of air guns within city limits already. I bumped up against that one recently at my field south of Acton.. but turns out were we conduct our OPs is ok. It is only restricted .. not prohibited

All the proposed bylaw adds is that it would now be contrary to a bylaw for anyone under the age of 18 to have replica or imitation guns in their possession.. they don"t have to discharge them to be breaking the law.
It is already illegal.. but a fine is much more likley to be enforced than a criminal charge.
