Toy Look-Alike Guns

Adopted March 1989 – Revised February 2014 – Community Concerns Commission

The California State PTA believes that the safety and welfare of our children depend upon securing laws that protect them, whenever possible, from death, serious accidents and injury.

The California State PTA is concerned that toy guns have been manufactured to look like machine guns, semi-automatics and revolvers, and is alarmed that deaths have occurred when toy guns were mistaken for real guns and when real guns are mistaken for toy guns.

California State PTA supports:

  • The current ban on the manufacture and sale of look-alike toy guns and urges its members to continue to be aware of legislation that might repeal or dilute this ban.

California State PTA urges:

  • Its unit, council and district PTAs to participate in public education about this ban and its importance to the safety of our children; and
  • Its unit, council and district PTAs to monitor their local toy stores to determine if they are in compliance with this ban.
