NJ state senator wants to ban toy guns

I don't have to tell you which party this moonbat legislator comes from, do I? From Joisey:
A New Jersey senator wants to make it illegal to sell or give to anyone under age 18 toy guns that look so realistic they can be mistaken for a real firearm.

"The margin between a child's stupid mistake and a tragic ending is far too thin," said Sen. Nicholas Scutari.

Scutari, D-Union, introduced the proposal in late June and plans to push it when the Legislature reconvenes late this year. He said the bill stems from an incident in a Union Township where four students were suspended after bringing a cap gun to school.

"We need to stress to our children that guns are not toys, but deadly weapons which should always be regarded with extreme caution and handled with respect," Scutari said. "Restricting access to imitation firearms will help to drive that point home."

Actually, moron, guns are not toys, but TOY guns are TOYS! Continuing:
Violators would face a fine of up to $1,000 and up to six months in prison.

Little Johnny buys a water pistol with his allowance and winds up in the hoosegow. Brilliant.

New Jersey must have officially run out of all other problems with which to deal, if they're now turning to banning toy guns.
