It is a municiple by-law meaning ... a fine for infraction, not a criminal charge.
Most Municipalities have outright bans for dischargng "firearms" within the Municiple boundaries.. and they define "firearms" as anything.. that discharges anything.. including sling shots, pea shooters, rubber band guns.
To my understanding the drive is to ban the sale of and possession of replicas from anyone under the age of 18.. A move that we should support.. and in fact lobby for not resist as it is one more regulation that may bee seen as "enough" with respect to replicas and prevent any amendment to the federal laws.
