Is "replica gun" what we used to call a toy gun or does it mean something else?

resident:

it means something different from a toy gun. Replica guns look just like real guns and are easily mistaken for same.

Well - as I said in a comment yesterday - this was a stupid, stupid crime, because his benefit was minimal compared to the potential consequences. (Not that any crime is justified.) Hopefully they are realizing the error of their ways ....

Good job, MPPD
