This toy is made to shoot a very small light weight plastic pellet and a very low velocity. You can do much more damage to someone or something with a child's slingshot.
If you go to the link and look at the picture of the kid holding this "toy", you can clearly see that the muzzle is orange. That is how Toys must be marked so law enforcement knows the difference when they respond to a stupid and ridiculous call like this one.
If my child had one of these on my property and the school or a neighbor publicly stated that he/she had a firearm I would sue the crap out of them. It is not a firearm under any nomenclature, law, or known definition.
Anyone claiming that this is a firearm is guilty of telling a bold faced outright lie. Stupid people?? No, these are left wingers with an anti gun agenda and they and the media who reported it as a firearm are just liars.
One of these days the media is going to be right when they report a pissed off right winger went off his rocker with a REAL gun.
When I was a kid we’d go into the woods and play war with BB guns. And no one lost an eye.
