True, taked from Canada's Wal-mart section on Airsoft guns:
"
WARNING: SOFT AIR GUNS ARE NOT TOYS. ADULT SUPERVISION REQUIRED. MISUSE OR CARELESS USE MAY CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY PERTICULARLY TO THE EYE. MAY BE DANGEROUS UP TO 100 YARDS. READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING. THIS SOFT AIR GUN IS INTENDED FOR USE BY THOSE 16 YEARS OF AGE AND OLDER.
"

Same thing, just they lowered it to 16+ and have mentioned said Parental Supervision. Now said legal disclaimer does apply to him. If Wal-Mart Canada's legal department has stepped in and added this clause there is justification in saying the store who sold to his 12year old son with no adult present did break a law.

Especially with all the legal hassels in BC over Airsoft in the past 2 years, this really is not a minor issue. And in the wrong hands could cause even more issues for the sport in general.
