*clarification* it was the 20's (but good point, and the same could be said for the reefer too )

I kind of agree, however... the thing you guys are missing is that these "gangbangers" (some of whom are in fact not dead upon the recovery of these weapons) are getting a lot of their guns by stealing them from the collectors.. or getting them from someone else who stole them. so it's really more of a complex issue than you're making it out to be. that being said, i don't really know how this thread about replica/toy gun by-laws turned into one about the debate over real firearms.. lol. but yeah, the by-law sounds like a good thing so far, and the problems expressed by others regarding the soccer-mom factor are shared by many, and are quite troubling
