Sale of toy guns banned in Atlantic City

Atlantic City officials have voted to ban the sale of toy guns.

While they're just for play, some look extremely realistic and have even been used in crimes - that's why police are trying to get them off the streets.

The toy gun ordinance which was passed early Wednesday evening bans the sale and possession of an imitation firearm - unless it's a bright color, clearly indicating that it's not real.

One council member says he's gotten calls from Philadelphia and Washington D.C. and he hopes the idea catches on.
