 Well, y'know the crips-n-bloods are doing mad drive by pellet gun shootings!  >:(

Here in Canada if they fire over a certain velocity, I believe 500 feet per second, they are considered firearms and you need a license and registration for it.

The government at one point even was planning on making you register crossbows!

I had read that in some areas this is the case.  I still think it's nuts to call a pneumatic rifle or pistol a "firearm."

They were originally going to also include crossbows and compound bows under the definition of "firearm" and require them to be registered.  They backed off but the legislation gives the government the option to bring it in later.
