Michigan contemplating fake gun ban…

Michigan bill would make it a crime to alter a fake firearm to look like a real gun (eg: removing red nose of air soft gun). 

At first I was concerned as this could criminalize numerous individuals. Thankfully, they made it only apply to an altered device used in a crime.  This I can accept.  That last provision makes the difference between justice and injustice.

Meanwhile, across the pond over in Illinois, a bill is being proposed to at a 2% sin tax on all ammo sales to fund a trauma center grants.  Apparently there are exemptions for Department of Natural Resources (and I wager police departments as well).
