Are you a paid member of any of those organizations? Why should they defend your property rights regarding replica/imitation firearms?
You can try the NFA (Canadian version) but they are doing all they can just to hang on to Canadian firearms owners rights, they're probably not going to spend much time or resources defending replica firearms, and some circles in the firearms community would agree about banning airsoft guns - so I don't think thats a productive direction either.
Ultimately the response will have to come from this community. There are members here that have been engaged in a dialog with the government on and off for some time. So like I said, I am waiting for more information (24-72 hour timeframe) before I say or do anything definitive.
GOOD POINTS... until tomorrow or the day after then. I shall leave it at that and worst case, will make my call on Monday morning after I have gathered the necessary information.
Again to stress this - it is a serious issue and if you are going to make a joke of it... please post somewhere else.
