Not entirely correct. For the longest time I've wanted a Piper's M-134A2. Well before Kang went down in flames, and Warcraft Games had tea with the CBSA and RCMP, I asked just about every vendor this side of the border if they could bring one in for me. Nobody would touch it with a 10 foot pole. Want the latest gun coming out of Asia on the release date? Not likely to happen. Perhaps you'll get one when they begin to trickle in sometime later.
I couldn't even get a thermal imager into Canada, as it was both an export violation under US law, and an import violation under Canadian law, even after I showed both parties proof of my exclusion from those restrictions. It's a very much "who you deal with" kind of world out there, printed law or no printed law.
