In California and other States, law enforcement officers often times send out public safety announcements. One issue that is often addresses in these public safety announcements is gun safety. Kern County California Sheriff Donny Youngblood recently spoke about gun safety and the tragic scenes that his police officers respond to. Namely, responding to a scene in which a child is shot “tugs at your heart” according to Youngblood.

The confusion is only amplified by the marketing and distribution of toys that look just like real guns and firearms.
