You're just annoyed because your importation methods are less than legal as well.

But the god damn local news keeps airing the story everytime there is any update and now it is even posted on the cbc news which is international...
That's the media for you :P

Either way, I hope they ruin his life, he broke the law, no if, and or but about it. Just be glad the authorities are doing their job :P

I'm just expressing sympathy for the man, I'm not condoning what he did. I've never had any issues importing airsoft myself by following the proper procedures and paying the fees, he clearly did not know how to legally self import. I also don't see how you're qualified to determine the legality of how I import my airsoft stuff. Yeah he's a principal and he should have known better than to break the law. I'm not condoning his actions but it's not like he's smuggling real guns and several pounds of cocaine that he's planning on selling to children.

It's not just airsoft either. I feel the same way about people who get prison time or get slapped with ridiculous fines for possessing small amounts marijuana. Yeah it's illegal but the punishment far outweigh the crime. You should think about that before you wish the worst for someone you don't even know.

Ah, I wasn't aware that was his day profession, nor did I realize this "news" is not new. Thanks for the update.

For what it's worth, in my dealings with him, he was a good guy, as far as the airsoft community goes. He was a respected player and member of the community. I was never privy to his importation methods, and I was quite surprised when this news broke.

I have information from a very good source, that:

1) There has been no conviction (yet). Hence the Oct 12th court re-appearance date
2) Nobody is in prison
3) This user was a former ASC user (he no longer is)
4) There was no "front man" for anything.
5) This October 4th article is old news
