Q: All summer I have been constantly harassed by some jerks from school. I am only 17 and not old enough to get a handgun permit, so is it legal to carry a fake/toy gun that looks real? Can I get arrested?
A: Carrying a toy gun is not illegal, however, it's pretty stupid! I am not sure what kind of “security” a fake gun provides, but if you are attacked, a fake gun isn’t going to offer you any protection. The notion that you will stop a criminal from an action by the use of a toy or fake gun is unrealistic and can lead to you getting shot or injured.
