The Cleveland Patrolmen’s Association announced it will soon be filing a lawsuit against toy gun manufacturers in federal court.
CPPA attorney Henry Hilow told News 5 the civil lawsuit will not seek financial damages, but rather seek to restrict the design of toy guns, so they don’t look so realistic.
“These fake weapons put the community at risk, puts law enforcement at risk, something has to be done,” Hilow said. “The remedy that we’d be looking for is that that gun could not replicate. That that gun would be of such a color have such a tip.”
