So much for the comparison between knowledge and wisdom.

At the age of 51 in a position like that.. chances are it was smuggled for his kids or something of the sort.

Knowledge is when you know how to make a fire on your living room carpet with household chemicals and an a BBQ igniter.

Wisdom is when you realize that it would be stupid to do it.

Never confuse the two.

I don't think they'll. Even worry about charging him for the guns directly. Even if they are prohibited, smuggling is a felony. Now if he had been smuggling real firearms, or drugs I could see that adding some time.

Was my whole point. The gentleman was a school principal, supposedly an educated and knowledgeable person. But he lacked the wisdom to avoid a dangerous and stupid behavior.

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law, with 2 doctorates and a BSc between them thought they could time her cycle to the day, with calculations and everything. That way, they didn't need pesky and sometimes unreliable birth control.

She got pregnant very quickly.

Never confuse knowledge with wisdom.

Wear a condom.

I for one, like when airsoft is compared to paintball in the media.

The article says he was smuggling, and the items he was caught with were airsoft guns. Usually they try to 'doom and gloom' airsoft, and the smuggling would be a lesser point.

Nice to see a change.

Airsoft guns can be deemed as restricted items? Who knew?

This was regarding another case, involving a former ASC member from Barrie, Ontario.

They aren't restricted according to the CCC, but they are according to importation law. They are two different entities that work off each other, and the line between them can sometimes be blurred when it comes to interpretation (especially in the media.)

They are prohibited from importing.
They are NOT prohibited from ownership.
