I know I would in that event, not because I want to airsoft, but because I refuse to live in a country were a single institution can twist the law that far from its original context simply to prosecute harmless people and activities. Maybe it's already happened with other laws, but this is the one I keep track of and the one I feel I know how to make a stand on.
CBSA has no legal basis to stop parts and it damn well better stay that way.
I can't easily see that happening. Unless they start banning imports from certain retailers (say, sieze anything from WGC) they'll be siezing a lot of non-airsoft shit, which will piss off communities of people more favorable than us who actually have some tug.
I'm inclined to agree with what Brian said about them losing interest and retailers cropping up again in a few years. However, why they haven't prevented CT and Walocaust from selling their clearsoft that is 10000 times more accessible to dumbass kids is beyond me. Must have somethign to do with the power of the corporation.
