Two CA lawmakers want to change the look of toy guns


SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) — Two California lawmakers want to ban the sale of imitation firearms like the one a 13-year-old boy was carrying when he was fatally shot by a Sonoma County sheriff's deputy last month. Legislation announced Friday would require BB, pellet and airsoft guns to be translucent or brightly colored so they're not mistaken for real firearms. The bill is co-authored by Sen. Noreen Evans of Santa Rosa and Sen. Kevin de León of Los Angeles, both Democrats. In 2011, de León introduced similar legislation that was opposed by gun-rights advocates. State and local officials announced the new legislative effort one month after a deputy shot and killed Andy Lopez, who was carrying a BB gun that looked like an assault rifle.
