Glenn Fearn, who is 57, appeared Tuesday in Lethbridge provincial court.
He refused to enter a plea to the nine charges he faces, saying it was "an inferior court" and it has no jurisdiction over the matter.
Judge Timothy Hironaka entered a not guilty plea on Fearn's behalf, and set a four-day trial to begin in early March.
Canada Border Services Agency laid the charges in October after customs officers in Coutts seized a number of weapons including a blowgun, a push dagger, pepper spray, and 10 over-capacity magazines.
