That's what we pay them to do. We can't very well have them sitting around playing cards waiting for serious crimes to be committed. This isn't the 1940's .

Different cops. Different budgets. Different priorities. Different agendas.

Walmart, Canadian Tire, Cabellas, and Sports Wholesale (to name a few) are worse for getting "replica firearms" into the hands of people that shouldn't have them, than the 3 individuals charged, combined.

But until clearsoft guns and spray paint are banned, nothing you can do about it. Although, spray painting a clear gun black may be construed as manufacturing a replica, no different than widdling one from a chunk of wood and spray painting it black.

Since when are policies adopted by a government organization actual law?

Whatever. I'm not educated in any litigative capacity, I just wish things were different for the responsible Airsofters in this country.
Don't we all.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
