Seems like a good thing to me. 8 year old kids playing with realistic cap guns will not be bothered because nobody will call the cops on them and a passing cop wouldn't care. This bylaw allows cops to actually fine those 16 year olds who shoot air pistols at people and break the windows of neighbours. Before, the cops would just take their guns away, but not do anything further, because criminal charges seemed a little heavy handed. Now, they, or their parents, will be fined $150 so the point comes across more clear.
