What will stop a person from painting an equivalent orange stripe on a real gun? This is one of those liberal feel good laws that can be undone in about 15 seconds with a can of spray paint.

Five major retailers have agreed to stop selling realistic-looking toy guns in New York state, the attorney general said Monday.

Walmart, Amazon, K-Mart and its parent Sears, as well as a small online retailer called ACTA announced a deal with New York state attorney general Eric Schneiderman to halt the illegal sales.

He says the toys at issue can be mistaken by law enforcement for the real thing because they don’t have the broad orange stripe down the side that’s required for fake guns by New York state law. (Federal law requires toy guns to have an orange tip).

The companies will stop shipping the illegal toys to New York and will collectively pay fines totaling more than $309,000.

Since 1994 there have been 63 shootings linked to toy guns in the state, resulting in at least eight deaths, according to Schneiderman. He said at a press conference that it was the 1998 death of Brooklyn teenager Michael Jones, whose water gun was mistaken by police for a real weapon, that spurred lawmakers to ban realistic toy weapons.

But “year after year, we found retailers chose profit over safety,” Schneiderman added.
