Shame to see a man of such high stature lose his job over toy guns. I've seen teachers get caught having inappropriate relations with students and they got off with just a warning.

No he lost his job over smuggling, the critical part of that article DID NOT DECLARE. Booze, cig or anything else you do not declare you are smuggling.

You can be criminally charged with anytime you smuggle. Airsoft makes it worse, but he made the choice. No sympathy here he is not 17 with a crummy job and teenaged brain cells, and basically figuring he has little to lose.

He is 51 and in a position of trust with a good job, he chose to break the law. Most likely to save money or make money, bad choice harsh consequence.

Yup, I wouldn't feel so bad if he'd declared them, and got a slap on the wrist. But smuggling is smuggling is smuggling. I wonder if he knew they would be considered replica, or prohibited devices? Or if he thought they would be looked at as toys. The fact that he didn't declare them, makes me think he knew better. And everyone knows not to smuggle.

This, boys and girls, is why you don't try to smuggle airsoft guns across the border.

Well not declaring booze and smokes is a time-honoured Canadian tradition, but yes with airsoft rifles definitely a no-no.

Good on CBSA. I wonder if the guy was an ASC user.

Less awesome is the article thinks we shoot pellets. I dunno about you guys, but I've never seen a pellet come out of one of my airsoft guns. But whatever, I'm nitpicking.

Dude should have known better.

He was not an ASC user but there was a front man on here selling guns in the classifieds and locally, who is now in prison.

"Seymour has been charged with eight counts of failure to declare prohibited weapons, and possession and smuggling of prohibited weapons."

Since when are we considered prohib?

Not all airguns are considered prohibited. They have to meet certain criteria. But some airsoft guns do fall into that category. I don't know exactly what he brought into the country either. It could just be the spin they put on it.

Charged with... is a far cry from convicted of.

as part of the prosecution they will have to prove that the airsoft guns he had are replicas and therefore prohibited devices.

If they look like real firearms but are not ( they shoot less than 430 fps ) then he may very well end up in prison if convicted ( charges carry 5 year mandatory sentence )

regardless he can kiss his $130 000 a year job good bye
