“State law prohibits the sale of imitation guns in realistic colors such as black, blue, silver, or aluminum, unless it has a non-removable one-inch-wide orange stripe running down both sides of the barrel and the front end of the barrel,” according to Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office.
However, in NYC the laws are even stricter making all retailers paint the toys entirely in a neon color. Some only retailers are getting around the law by refusing to sell their toys to any NY residents.
“Some of the toy guns discovered during the investigation are advertised as ‘realistic looking’ and ‘full size. Since they lack the orange striping down both sides of the barrel as required under state law, these imitation assault rifles, shotguns, and pistols closely resemble dangerous weapons, and could be easily mistaken for real weapons by law enforcement and civilians alike,” said the Attorney’s office.
Walmart, Amazon, and other retailers will now be forced to pay the fines, and align to their toys to the laws on NYC. This isn’t the first time Walmart has been fined. In 2003 the Attorney’s office smacked Walmart with a 200,000 fine.
