North Vernon police are warning parents about the danger of look-alike toy guns, after a realistic looking pellet gun was found at the pool yesterday.
According to police reports, the toy gun was unsecured and wrapped inside a towel. Police suggest that if your children use Airsoft guns you should take time to talk with them about safe handling and how to react if an officer approaches them. Police say that they get many calls about guns and they take them all seriously. They suggest that anyone carrying a realistic looking toy gun should be very careful to listen to officer’s commands.
They also suggested that if your child is going to play with pellet guns and needs to transport the gun, that they do so inside of a bag or case
