I’m a retired Detroit police officer who tried 15 years ago to have the Michigan Legislature force toy manufacturers to color all toy guns red, yellow, green, orange or neon colors, so there would be no mistaking a real gun for a toy gun.
This effort was not successful, but this is a serious issue. Have your police agency or association join the effort to get toy guns clearly marked. Children and police officers are endangered by toy guns that look real, so whatever you can do to help will be much appreciated.
