Kitchener Gun Law Help

Hi im sure this question has been asked many times before but I need to know for sure. I live in kitchener ontario, and was wondering what are the (airsoft) gun laws in kitchener? I have an AK 47 370FPS with orange tip on it. And are police aloud to confiscate my guns?

Are you wanted or something!

If you're being an idiot, yes it's pretty clear cut.

Also bylaw enforcement can and usually will confiscate if you're in violation of municipal bylaws.

In your home, keep it locked and hidden away from plain view. You are fine beyond that, it is 100% legal to own.

Basically as long as you store it properly, treat it as real you have no need to worry.

If you take it out in the public they most likely will confiscate it.

If police confiscate your guns it will be under the firearms act and the criminal code. City bylaws would be the least of your worries at that point.

Just in case you're still confused, Tryudie, it's basically saying that owning a 'gun' is permitted and within the law, but firing or showing it in a public place is not. Even waving your gun around in your front lawn is a bad idea, so don't do it.

Sorry if I did a complete regurgitation of anyone's post.

ALLOWED, it's A-L-L-O-W-E-D.
aloud means that it's loud X[]
if you pass by a cop and say aloud that you have a gram of weed on you, he'll be allowed to search you.
gee
