According to an Ohio sheriffs deputies’ MyFace page (as reported by gunssavelives.com), what you see above is a for-real pump action shotty made to look like a Super Soaker (although that pic has floated around a while). You can see the problem here, especially if you patrol a beat. Following the Tamir Rice shooting, one Ohio legislator wants to mandate that all air, pellet and BB guns be brightly colored. But what about purple Kahrs? Or pink Smiths? Or yellow Tauri? With hack jobs like that 12 gauge squirt gun, if you’re a police officer, you could be forgiven for drawing down no matter what the color of that thing that’s pointing at you is. Whether the thing above is genuine or not, should disguising a real gun as a toy be illegal (where it already isn’t)?
