I think it's also important to not lose sight of what he was charged and convicted for; this isn't just an "OMFG airsoft" situation, as AFAIK, as with Peter Kang and others, this stems from the violation of a License and/or illegal importation (smuggling).

The fact that the terms of that license was broken probably has a very negative bearing on the entire situation, in contrast to Joe Schmoe who might try importing something, gets caught/seized, and receives a competitively friendly letter from CBSA giving him the option to appeal or have the item shipped into a jurisdiction where it's legal.

There remains AS in Canada being brought in legally, above board.
