Dodge County Sheriff’s Office Issues Reminder on Fake Guns

The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office is reminding people to use common sense and sound judgment when using fake guns or BB guns while in view of the public. Many toy guns – especially airsoft guns – can look very realistic and could possibly lead to a dangerous situation. 

Toy guns are generally required to have an orange tip to make them more recognizable, but that can still be difficult to see from a distance. The sheriff’s office mentions that due to events around the world, people are more sensitive to people with guns in their neighborhood. 

They are also asking anyone using toy guns to go above and beyond to make it clear that their weapon is not real – and ask parents to monitor their childrens activities with them.
