Not content with passing idiotic laws mandating that all guns be “smart” weapons, and prosecuting law-abiding single mothers over simple gun-related misunderstandings, New Jersey liberals are now turning their attention to the true menace of the streets -- toy guns and cap guns.
This week, lawmakers in Atlantic City voted to “ban the sale, possession or use of any imitation firearms – except for non-firing antiques and film prop guns – which aren’t in bright, fluorescent colors”.
Apparently they think that this will somehow increase public safety. “We’ve gotten a lot of phone calls from D.C. and Philadelphia,” said Atlantic City Councilman George Tibbit. “This is catching on. We may be saving some lives.”
Tibbitt didn’t specify how banning toy guns will “save lives” (possibly because it won’t).
Town Hall blogger Michael Schaus sums up the utter folly of this approach:
“Look, guns don’t kill people; but chunks of plastic – that merely resemble an actual gun – certainly don’t kill people…. Only liberals would think that banning toy guns will somehow cut down on crime. Maybe we should implement background checks and registration schemes for Nerf guns as well.”
This proves – yet again – that New Jersey liberals will do anything possible to discriminate against gun owners.
