If I were to guess, it is likely against his campus policy to have air-guns on the premises.

That is not to say the article isn't incredibly alarmist.

While I feel for the guy, as it seems pretty obvious to me he was just out to make a few bucks by enjoying his hobby, it would have been smart to make sure he was in line with any laws or campus rules before doing so. Do I think it warranted a SWAT team and him being dragged out in cuffs? No, but that's with the hindsight of knowing they were airsoft/pellet guns. The guy who found them probably had no way of knowing if they were real or not and therefore neither did the police, so precautions had to be taken.

That is why I left my SR1 at home for my trip to the north last fall. I would hate to lose it at the border.

I thought this line was funny

"They have a range of about 140 to 300 feet and can cause flesh wounds at a close range, sources said"

Paper clips and a rubber band can cause flesh wounds at a close range.

Nope. There was some grey confusion from CBSA but last year they cleared things up.
