    Toy Guns Becoming A Criminal Offense

    If a gangbanger wants to get into a gunfight with a toy gun, what's the problem? I don't get it. :huh:

    If I recall correctly, an armed guard was once held hostage and had his firearm removed with a highlighter to the back of the head. They then proceeded to rob the bank with a real gun. With that being said, if a gangbanger has no fear of immediate consequences, but chooses to use fear as means of intimidation- with a real or fake firearm. The person on the receiving end would not stop to think(presumably), "hey, this might be a toy gun", "or that IS a toy gun (but it was real)". Now go a little further down the hole and imagine what they can do to a female, or male, in depravity and in fear of their life. I would hate to be an officer living with the guilt of a toy gun vs a life...mine or theirs.

    I get your logic too, but it is an obvious way around the law as it currently stands.

    I much rather see them ban making real guns look like toys. Like painting them in pastel colors so they look pretty.

    More unnecessary nanny-state crap.

    Didn't John Dillinger break out of Jail using a carved wooden gun?

    Yeah. Dillinger broke out of lockup a couple of times.

    Yep, that about sums it up. Robbery is a crime no matter if the crook uses a real gun or a fake one. Lets go after the real crimes and stop with the silliness already.

    Jones needs a reality check if he thinks a little orange plug in the barrel of a toy gun is going to save a life.

    I'll revise the first paragraph to make it accurate:
