Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Criminal Code of 2012. Adds an Imitation Firearms Article to the Code. Prohibits the sale of an imitation firearm in the State and of a BB device that is an airsoft gun that expels a projectile, such as a BB or pellet, that is 6mm or 8mm caliber which does not meet certain criteria. Provides that the criteria includes, if the airsoft gun is configured as a handgun, a blaze orange ring on the barrel required by federal law, a trigger guard that has fluorescent coloration over the entire guard, and a 2 centimeter wide adhesive band around the circumference of the protruding pistol grip that has fluorescent coloration. Adds certain additional criteria if the airsoft gun is configured as a rifle or long gun. Provides that a person who sells an imitation firearm in the State is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor. Provides that a person who sells a BB device that does not meet the criteria specified in the Imitation Firearms Article is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor. Provides exemptions. Defines "imitation firearm" as any BB device, toy gun, replica of a firearm, or other device that is so substantially similar in coloration and overall appearance to an existing firearm as to lead a reasonable person to perceive that the device is a firearm.
