The description sounds like a realistic, firing, airsoft gun. It was stupid to bring it to a public park and allow the children to point it at others.

I agree based on one witness stating at first it looked like a real gun. Real or not you have to go by the reasonable person standard. The report that he did fire pellets at a tree makes it worse in my eyes. If I was the judge and found this to be the case, I would sentence him to 2 Saturday nights in Bellevue ER to teach him all he ever wanted to know about penetrating injuries.

Is it illegal to have an airsoft gun in NYC? IF not, then no crime was committed. Last I checked, being stupid aint illegal.

I'm guessing you didn't watch the video. They got him for reckless endangerment, resisting arrest, and possession of an illegal BB gun.

NY is so full of gun fear that this guy had to know he'd freak all the mom's out...or maybe hoped to get arrested so he could file a lawsuit.

No problem. Glad to help out. Heck, I almost skipped it. I hate watching documented stupidity.
