Cleveland Police Suing Toy Gun Manufacturers Over Realistic Looking Toys

Nearly three years after 12-year old Tamir Rice was killed by Cleveland Police as he played with a toy gun, a police union in Cleveland has filed a federal lawsuit against manufacturers of toy guns that appear to resemble real firearms.

    Tamir Rice was not playing with a toy gun. He was threatening people with a weapon that was capable of doing serious harm. The gun he had was not a nurf type toy. It used ammo of metal pellets which are small projectiles (bullets).
    The difference between his gun and a “real” gun is the source of the energy that forces the projectile out of the barrel and forward. The type of gun he used certainly isn’t a powerful and what is commonly called a real gun but no one is obligated to stand in front of that gun and allow themselves to be shot. We have had at least one person in recent years killed by such a gun.
