My sister showed me five toys and asked me to pick the two I thought looked most realistic. I chose the toy hand grenade and the toy knife/grenade/watch set. And she set those aside.

The remaining toys were tiny replicas of a pistol and a rifle, and small replicas of two orange handguns with green cylinders. They are all cap guns. But, upon closer inspection, anyone willing to look will notice a small warning on the toy guns. And here it is:

So, tell me now. How could any police officer mistake any of these toy guns for real guns? And you could really be charged with a crime if you whipped out the Mighty Midget toy gun key chain? Really?

Obviously, it’s a toy. But it ticks and makes an explosion sound. And doesn’t alert the media like the far more ridiculous-looking toy guns do.

I just can’t help but wonder, “Why the difference?”
