From _The Gazette:
_At the urging of police, the [Cedar Rapids] City Council has made it a misdemeanor offense to carry a loaded BB gun, air gun or pellet gun in the city limits. Juveniles cannot have the guns at all, loaded or unloaded, unless they are under adult supervision.
_Police Capt. Bernie Walther said people have used the toy guns in hopes the victims will think they are real. It is easy for anyone, including a police officer, to mistake them for the real thing, he said.
_”It makes no sense for anybody to be carrying one of things out in public, unless you’re going to the range to do some shooting,” Walther said. “That’s all there is to it.”
Is that all there is to it? What’s your reaction?
