    Question Nashville, TN--Look-Alike Firearms Bills

    Bills seek punishment for use, display of fake weapons

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Concerns that realistic-looking toy weapons are confusing police and threatening safety have led 15 states to try going beyond gun control and cracking down on fake firearms.

    Officer Micheal Hoover knows a fair amount about guns as a sniper instructor for a Tennessee SWAT team. He recalls the night two years ago when a car pulled up beside him on a highway and the passenger waved what looked like an Uzi.

    "It scared me," he said. "If anyone is in their right mind, I don't see how it wouldn't."

    The NRA is opposed to these types of bills, essentially thinking they are silly....

    Don't need any more laws...waving a 'fake' gun could get you killed just as quickly as waving the 'real McCoy'...OMO

    If you don't know the difference, you're just cluttering up the gene pool anyway.
    Proverbs 27:12 says: “The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.”
