    Yeah, can't exercise the freedom to carry guns and the freedom to carry simulated guns, at the same time, in the same country.

    I agree this is a dumb idea. But I think the fact that this is a dumb idea itself is dumb. How crazy has police shooting become that people can't use whatever (in bad taste of course) type of case they want?

    It's not exactly the same, given that in some cases it may look like an unholstered pistol. It could also appear as if you're pointing it at someone. Even in open carry states, those things would not be favorably viewed.
