Calif. Law Would Require Bright-Colored BB Guns
April 28, 2011
California lawmakers are getting behind a law initiated by the Los Angeles Police chief and mayor in response to an officer-involved shooting that left a teenager paralyzed.
The Senate Public Safety Committee approved the legislation Tuesday that was sought by LAPD's Chief Charlie Beck and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. In December, an officer shot a 13-year-old boy who pulled out a replica Beretta 92F after officers ordered him to surrender.

A can of black spray paint takes care of brightly colored BB guns. I wish passing laws could cure our problems, but they can't.
