Toy Gun? Hands Up!

Toy Gun? Hands Up!

Michigan legislators are considering a bill that would make it a crime to alter a toy gun to make it look real or conversely, alter a real gun to make it look like a toy. http://www.macombdaily.com/articles/2011/12/27/news/politics/doc4efa80e3d04e6715602586.txt

Apparently, Detroit gang members are removing the orange tip from airsoft guns and using them to menace others in that city.

Those with long memories will recall that John Dillinger used a carved wooden gun to break out of jail in Crown Point, Ind., in 1933, so the use of fake guns in crime is hardly new.

Using an altered toy or real gun in a felony would be punishable by up to 18 months in prison.
