Want that? It's your choice. It's your life after all. Try to get a job with a criminal record or after you get flagged at Customs for smuggling. Try to get a security clearance. Feel free to ignore that advice for the sake of a toy gun.
They can't do shit if you declare it. All they can do it take it away and destroy it.
