If someone is old enough to go into a store and buy a seemingly real weapon, they should have enough sense to know not to get into situations where they can get shot. But with (what appears to be) the IQ of the population going down increasingly with each generation, this may be an issue, but also perhaps should warrant better parenting in letting your children know they are stupid?
And....knives are dangerous too, and kids bring those to school all the time and get in trouble for it - I call for a ban.
Seriously though - people will always find weapons, or things that look like weapons. And if they outright ban replicas, all the more scared people would be of them, because they would automatically think it was real when people (i.e - dumb teenagers, etc.) smuggle them, or already own them, etc.
