    It wasn't marked as a toy because it is not considered a toy. We do have those laws in effect.

    After reading several of what I consider the least biased of the news stories, my best guess is that a dumb assed kid decided that it would be cute to take a weapon from the Walmart sporting goods section, remove it from its packaging, and walk around the store brandishing.

    Stupid sometimes has a price.

    He wasn't shot for holding a pellet gun. He was shot for threatening innocent civilians and ignoring the police officer.

    I know you're just baiting, but the police officer did the right thing, and you're the type that would be pissing their pants begging the cops to save you had someone been pointing a rifle at you in a store.

    Anyone catch this part?
    A 37-year-old customer, Angela Williams of Fairborn, died after suffering a medical problem during evacuation of the store, authorities said. It could be weeks before final autopsy results are known, they said.

    So two people died that night, because a 22 year old thought he'd be funny, or was high or whatever was going on in his fool head.

    What innocent civilians did he threaten? Can you name a single one of them?

    Got a reliable source to back up your contention that he was threatening people? Who told you he was threatening people?

    You expect anyone to take that risk. I'm sorry, if someone is pointing a gun at me and I have a gun pointed at them, I am going to kill them before they kill me.

    Ya know, you're right. He was just this guy, that picked up a BB gun and someone called 911, and the cop that showed up, he just saw gun and fired. You got ample proof of this I'm sure. Right? Got some eyewitness testimony?

    Got some video?

    Got anything other than an absurd hard on for hate towards police officers?

    Third, the weapon is not a toy, and is not carried in the toy section. By law, toy weapons must carry the red tip. This one does not. Other news sources claim that the weapon is stocked in the sporting goods section and that an empty box was found on the shelf days later. (not sure I buy that detail, since it seems the LEO would have removed it, at least the store would)

    Third, apparently the victim had removed the weapon from the sporting goods section, from its box, and was carrying it around the store, either in the pet department or the toy section.

    Thanks, that's excellent additional information and, at least for me, removes any doubt that either the store or the manufacturer are responsible for the death of this young man.

    I'd like to see a lawyer for the dead woman get into this one and see if the 22yr old or his family have any resources to compensate the woman's family's loss.

    Indeed, but it will STILL be used as a pretext for control by the left. This adult is a darwin candidate, and worse-he took someone with him.
