That means, the guns get taken away and locked out of the reach of kids when parents aren't supervising. Airsoft is in far too fragile a state in Canada to let kids have guns in their posession without adult supervision.
I think that's great. I bought 2 VSR-10's simply because it's cheaper for ammo for my kids to do target shooting and i can still teach them proper firearms safety/handling. I have 43 acres of wooded land and made a small firing range for them. And they are all locked up along with the real steel in rilfe cabinets (helps teach the kids that they are not toys)
