Canada May License And Register Toy Guns

The Canadian Safety Council has asked police to push for registering and licensing replica toy guns. Several persons have been killed by police while they were holding guns that turned out to be replicas.

But, facts show that several persons killed while holding a toy gun were acting irresponsibly with them and acting like they were real when confronted by police. One man was killed while pointing a replica gun and threatening police that he would shoot it. Another held a replica gun in his hand after being stopped following a police car chase. And another held an air gun replica Sig Sauer and would not respond to police commands to put it down. A bank robber was killed when he pointed a fake gun at officers and said he would shoot.
About 40% of guns seized in Ottawa are fake guns.

Toy guns do get people into other kinds of trouble in Canada.  A LEGO gun got a Toronto man in trouble. One of Jeremy Bell’s co-workers saw him handling a handgun in his office. It looked like a semiautomatic pistol.

He was actually completing a handgun toy made of black LEGOs. He showed the toy to a co-worker and put it away. But, police arrived with guns drawn and rifles up at their shoulders.

It was then up against the wall and handcuffs for Bell. He was not arrested, but he probably had to change his underwear.
