Not a uncommon situation

The police execute warrants every day in which replicas are seized, Most of them don't hit the news.

Only the high profile cases that are good press make it to the light of day.

The day in day out small time drug busts, where replicas are found just don't garner much press.

The difference is when drugs are involved.. the full weight of the crimial code is used and they get busted for weapons offenses..

So this issue.. is not new, not uncommon, and not likely to have any effect on how the police perceive or enforce possession of replica firearms.

They have the discretion to charge or not charge as the situation dictates.

I want to know if these jokers are registered with the ASC. considering the size of that town there can't be that many players from Cobourg.
Cobourg is like 5 minutes east of my town and I haven't heard of anyone in the area that plays or is involved in airsoft. I don't know if they are ASC members but I'd love to find out who they are. Unfortunatly things like this make me want to sell everything and take up a new hobby........ya right.

1) You cant legislate against stupidity.
2) They should have been charged and booked.

If they got the guns from here, I'd be really surprised.

SnakeDoctor, you keep on asking about parts and things you cant use or even order because you are too young. You are not in a position to make comments like that, specially since you were told what the rules were more than once.

I can't see what his age has to do with this.

Im not trying to be a prick here grey, but are you not forgetting the charter right of free speech? Snake has the right to voice his opinion one way or another.

You've got a hard on for the age thing, dont you?

Now THAT is the funniest thing I've read all day.

As for these clowns, remember it's the spirit of the act that's important. I'm sure these guys didn't intend to cause a public disturbance, so there was no criminal thought in play. Remember how you react to this incident, however stupid you believe the participants to be, if you're ever stopped on the way to a game by the police. It could be you in the headlines next time, for just minding your own business and getting stopped by the wrong cop.

Yes Spacemoose, and free-speech includes my right to question folks who appear to do their best to try and find loopholes.

If he wants to learn about scopes, gun parts, etc he can simply use Google and read about them. His questions have a different slant. There is no good sensible reason to want to get all those parts and just keep them aside for 3 years unless he wants a gun too. And then where will he play?

He was told what options were open to him; all involve parental participation. There is no sign he got it at all. How many flags do you need before you start to ask questions?

Morb what's your plate number again? hehe JK.

If the gun call had been about the guns being used in a private backyard I would be less critical, but they were seen running between houses, and well transporting a gun in my trunk is certainly different then running around the neighbourhood doing a little one on one skirmishing.

Of course it is. The similarity is that in both cases, the cop who deals with the decision can decide to charge if he or she wants to, and we should be grateful for that discretion.

What wasn't stated was if the people in question were neighbors of the complainant, lived on the same street, etc. Granted at 19-20, I'd be concerned and would likely call the police myself, but I have young kids running through my yard with toy guns all the time.

RE: Fake Pistols Throw Scare Into Cops

Although I can certainly understand the severity of the incident reported, Pete Fisher has perhaps inadvertently presented some innacuracies in his article.

In the article, Mr Fisher refers to the replica handguns as "weapons". By definition, these items are replicas and should only be reffered to as weapons if used in the commission of a crime. Seeing as no charges were laid, it's hardly fair to use the term "weapon" to describe a toy look-alike.

The second innacuracy relates to Mr Fisher's comment "The men, aged 18 and 20, told police they bought the 9 mm and .40-calibre handguns off the Internet two months ago." The replicas in question may represent 9mm and .40 caliber handguns, but are in fact incapable of discharging ammunition of this type and should not be reffered to as such.

Semantics? Perhaps. However, factual innacuracies of this type only help to exaggerate anti-gun hysteria, which propogates just fine without the assistance of Sun Media's freelance reporters. "
