Got License For That Toy Gun?

Got a license for that toy gun? That's right - if this new law is passed, all items that look like a gun will have to be licensed:

ANY ITEM that looks like a gun will have to be licensed under several changes to the Weapons Act being considered by the Queensland State Government.

Even guns made out of materials as unlikely as soap or plastic may have to be kept under lock and key if they could "reasonably be taken to be a weapon".

The draft act says an imitation is a "reasonable copy" of a weapon that is not capable of causing death or injury.

"If it looks like a gun and feels like a gun, it will have to be licensed," said a government source.

Using this rationale; the state of Florida (which is distinctly gun-shaped) will have trouble. No keychain fob sales, etc. of this threatening shape!
