Cleveland Police Target Toy Gun Makers

The Cleveland police union is taking aim at toy gun makers.

Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association leaders say they're planning to file a lawsuit in federal court, demanding companies make toy guns that look like toys. The union’s attorney Henry Hilow says "These fake weapons put the community at risk, puts law enforcement at risk, something has to be done. The remedy that we'd be looking for is that that gun could not replicate. That that gun would be of such a color have such a tip."

Toy guns that look real became a hot-button issue in Cleveland after the deadly police shooting of 12 year old Tamir Rice back in 2014.
