Chandler, Arizona now allows toy guns to be carried in public
The City Council rewrote a municipal weapons ordinance that used to make it a misdemeanor to carry a loaded air gun, BB gun or paint-ball gun in a public place even though it is legal to carry real guns under state law.
The council made it legal to carry the less-lethal weapons but not fire them or display them in a threatening manner on public property. It's still legal to use them on private property.
The law came under fire from parents who said the toys aren't dangerous and the restrictions were too harsh.
I would like to thank Jim Henry for alerting me to this story.
