Now, come on! How ridiculous are things going to get in New York? Will orange-striped barrels really prevent kids from being shot by police? What about simply urging parents to teach their little brats not to point toy guns at the police?

That'll stop the rise in toy crimes!!!

Imaginary bullets kill more imaginary people than any other known cause.

Only an idiot would give their kid a toy gun.

Buy them a real one instead.

The real problem is how will the NY legislature mandate not an orange stripe down the barrel of every toy gun, but a yellow stripe down the back of every New Yorker.

Now, some enterprising hit man (or hit woman) will buy some orange tape and run it down the sides of his/her gun barrel, so their victim will only believe it to be a toy gun....until it is too late!

The point is: They are a bunch of damned liars at the Brady Center (aka Handgun Control) and the Million Moron March is just a bunch of their lackeys.

Toy guns are hard to find. I've got three boys who love to play Army, and we're constantly on the hunt for toy guns. Besides, they're all plastic and break within minutes of getting them out of the packaging.

"What about simply urging parents to teach their little brats not to point toy guns at the police?"

That would mean individual responsibility. Something liberals either are unable to do or detest as it is much easier to blame society.

Without admitting wrongdoing, Rubie's Costumes Co. agreed to pay $27,000 in civil penalties and costs and Franco American Novelty Co. agreed to pay $10,000.

Looks like someone's probably going to lose their job, but it's a small price to pay to keep those dangerously unstriped toy guns off the street.... /sarcasm

If toys are outlawed, only outlaws will have toys. From my cold, dead hands, toy grabbers!

That just tells you how out of control and incompetent cops have become.

Aggravated Possession of Toy Firearm: Felony

Possess while smoking in public.

Possess while wearing "cowboy" or "gangster" apparel.

Uttering "bang, bang" while feigning recoil.

In 1997, he said, four people were killed and a child was seriously injured when police thought toy guns were real ones.

IIRC weren't a few of these unfortunate folks trying to commit crimes with their toy guns?
