Simulated guns are dangerous things and I believe that government needs to act NOW to ban them. If we had a law against pretending to have a simulated gun, this crime never would have happened.
Three people drove into the Fuel-N-Go gas station at 33100 Van Duyn Road about 11:35 p.m. in a Cadillac with California plates, police Chief Mike Hudson said. One man went into the store, simulated a gun in his sweatshirt pocket and demanded money.
See? That's the REAL danger in carrying a simulated gun. When somebody pulls out the real thing, you're pretty well fucked. We don't teach this fact to our children, so a law against carrying a simulated gun is essential to protect
The robber ran out of the store, and a male attendant fought with the robber, who again simulated a weapon. The female clerk fired one shot, breaking out the car's rear window, the chief said. The bullet lodged in the dashboard of the car.
That's what carrying a simulated gun will get you. You lose the back window out of your getaway car, lose some of the money from your robbery and end up in police custody with trained canines snapping at your balls. It's a sad story.
And it all could have been prevented if we only had a law banning simulated guns.
