No Toy Gun For You!

New Jersey State Senator, a Democrat from Union, NJ, introduced banning the sale of toy guns to anyone under the age of 18. ABC News:

    [The bill will] make it illegal to sell or give to anyone under age 18 toy guns that look so realistic they can be mistaken for a real firearm.

    [...]

    Gun rights advocates plan to fight the bill.

    "It misses the mark because it demonizes toys instead of criminal behavior," said Scott Bach, president of the New Jersey Association of Rifle and Pistol Clubs.

    [...]

    "This bill seeks to intimidate retailers of even toy water pistols rather than to address the bad acts of criminals who use imitation guns in furtherance of crime," Bach said. "A parent who gives a child a toy firearm as a gift would be guilty under this legislation."
