    Consolidated Statutes, in firearms and other dangerous
    articles, providing for sale of certain toy guns and
    imitation firearms prohibited.
    The General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
    hereby enacts as follows:
    Section 1. Title 18 of the Pennsylvania Consolidated
    Statutes is amended by adding a section to read:
    6129. Sale of certain toy guns and imitation firearms
    prohibited.
    (a) Offense defined.--A person may not sell, transfer or
    assign a toy gun or imitation firearm unless the toy gun or
    imitation firearm is:
    (1) a color other than black, blue, silver or aluminum;
    (2) marked with a nonremovable orange stripe that is at
    least one inch in width and runs the entire length of the
    barrel on each side of the barrel; or
    (3) equipped with a barrel at least one inch in diameter
    that is closed at a distance of at least one-half inch from
    the front end of the barrel with the same material from which
    the toy gun or imitation firearm is made.
    (b) Exception.--The provisions of this section shall not
    apply to:
    (1) The sale of any toy gun or imitation firearm that
    will be used only for or in the production of television
    programs or theatrical or motion picture presentations,
    provided, however, that the use of any toy gun or imitation
    firearm complies with all applicable laws, rules or
    regulations concerning request and receipt of waivers
    authorizing the use.
    (2) A nonfiring collector replica antique firearm, which
    looks authentic and may be a scale model but is not intended
    as a toy modeled on a real firearm designed, manufactured and
    produced prior to 1898.
    (c) Penalty.--A person who violates this section shall be
    subject to a penalty of not more than $500 for the first offense
    and not more than $1,000 for each subsequent offense, to be
    collected in a civil action by a summary proceeding.

    of being mistaken for a genuine firearm.
    "Toy gun." A facsimile or reproduction of a firearm that is
    marketed as a toy for children and is substantially similar in
    appearance, size and shape to a genuine firearm.
    Section 2. This act shall take effect immediately.

    Well air soft guns are gateway guns, they will lead to full semi automatic guns and bumpy stocks.

    Yup, they throw crazy crap onto the flloor and then meet "half way" and appear they compromised in some non partisan heroic effort. Screw them!

    They start with the fake guns, how soon before they move on to the real ones?

    This is complete BS.

    Guess all my grandkids airsoft guns will have to go out on a boat with me next time I go fishing.

    So it's all about sales & transfer, not possession. Just like 80% lowers, how will the .gov know this transfer took place? As opposed to something you bought before this law took effect.

    I predict machine BB guns will be next on the ban wishlist. The recent shot show had a couple of manufacturers making them. All it takes is one kid to get caught with one and for the police to tell the news media that a kid possessed a machine BB gun and watch the media exploit the hell out of it.

    Why don't they just skip the BS already and start enslaving our children at birth since the government and the politicians are the only one's capable of raising our children

    Who gives the waivers? Already a pain in the ass to film in most places and that's why we moved productions out to the boonies.

    (1) The sale of any toy gun or imitation firearm that
    will be used only for or in the production of television
    programs or theatrical or motion picture presentations,
    provided, however, that the use of any toy gun or imitation
    firearm complies with all applicable laws, rules or
    regulations concerning request and receipt of waivers
    authorizing the use.
