    So if you're going to point a replica weapon at someone in a theatrical production, you have to get a permit?

    Jeff, I live about four miles from LSL.

    I have to ask myself, if I was CCW and was confronted in a threatening way by these young idiots. what would have happened?

    Not a nice question, and I don't like the answer much, especially if the teen drew down on me.

    :confused: And this ordinance will address . . . criminal stupidity???

    The children of Saint Louie need government to tell them not to be stupid? I thought that's what parents were for? :confused:

    Government-funded studies have shown that many parents do not possess the necessary training to engage in this activity. Therefore, it is best left to trained professionals.

    It's very interesting, in that is one of very few Schnuck's markets that I _know_ is not posted against concealed carry.

    The obvious solution is to handcuff our children and make it impossible for them to play with toy guns.

    This part of the story bothers me a lot. We have an Airsoft Glock 17 at home. Good practice, my 16 yr old daughter has fun with it, as we all do.

    Orange tip on the barrel. It should qualify as a "toy" if anyone sees it.

    These idiot kids coloring the tip puts them in peril from anyone who may be armed. The 13 year old boy probably would not appear to be a threat to me, but I know some 15 year olds who appear adult. Them together in a playing situation it would not appear to be a threat, but it depends on the situation.

    An ordinance is not the way to go. The kids should have been either taken home by the Police or held at the Police station. A parental interview should have sufficed.

    The kids around here paint them to look uneliveably real. I mean they add flaws, scuffs and more. Some have realistic bluing too.

    I ahve seen a few that would fool me from a few feet away. These kids are toting these things around everywhere. One local store sells what seems like hundreds of different models. ALWAYS packed with kids too.

    This is trouble waiting to happen.

    You're assuming they have parents. Is that a reasonable assumption?

    Yep, Standing Wolf, in that area of STL they have parents... Quite affluent.

    Maybe the parents are working two jobs to make the payments on the dual SUVs, but they have parents...

    Does that mean it is OK to use a weapon for nefarious purposes or as threats to life, limb or property, as long as it is a real weapon?

    "How dare you insult my honour by trying to rob me with a toy gun!"
