Default Blowgun!!!

I only ask this question under this thread because I really don't know where it should fit in and it has the word 'gun' in it's name.

Anyways, does anyone know why a blowgun is a prohibited weapon in Canada? I realise that many weapons are deemed prohibited for whatís seems to be no reason at all besides it's 'scary' look or demeanour. Why the blowgun? Surely it canít be because itís silent. If that were the case a bow should be next on the list. No? My digging around has only uncovered that itís a lethal weapon to larger animals if the tip is poisoned. Although, we have many other tools at our disposal that are far more dangerous. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that a slingshot poses more of a threat than a blowgun! I must be missing something.

Iíve been watching a lot of videos of guys dispatching small game with these suckers and it looks like a lot of fun. I really wish we could take part in this type of small game hunting. I think dropping a grouse or rabbit with a blowgun would be a wicked thrill!

Thanks in advance
