Should realistic looking air rifles be banned?
They're not real guns, but they sure can raise a police officer's blood pressure. Last week, North Vancouver RCMP confiscated an airsoft shotgun and several pistols after a concerned resident reported teenagers toting firearms in the park. In what may be a precedent-setting decision, the Ontario Court of Appeal recently expanded the definition of firearms to include pellet guns. Is it just a matter of time before a fake gun provokes a real shooting, or should we trust youth to show good judgment with their toys?
