Dealing with a subject's 'toy gun'

All guns need to be treated as if they are real


This evil little “innovation” reappears every so often — I first wrote about it back in 2009 — and while I cannot tell if this is exactly the same gun I’d been tipped off to more than two years ago, it is most certainly the same idea. 

These images appear to have been distributed by a large agency in the Midwest — I have not been able to independently verify the original source, but several email pen pals have name-dropped the same agency (my efforts to connect with a PIO at that PD have not been successful). 

Nonetheless, given the fact that a dozen or more of my email pen pals out there have each emailed me versions of these images in the past week or so, I’ve decided it’s as good a time as any to post a reminder. Check out these images (below and left) — and let’s have a little more discussion on the subject.
