Utah mayor calls ban on toy guns ridiculous

WASHINGTON TERRACE - Kids just want to have fun - but in one Utah town, they can't even play with a water pistol.
So a 14-year-old boy is launching a campaign to overturn a ban on certain toy guns.
Matthew Taylor said he was playing with friends in April when a police officer in Washington Terrace told the boys to stop using so-called airsoft guns that shoot plastic pellets.
Taylor enlisted Mayor Mark Allen, who says the laws in his city and Weber county that prohibit certain toy guns are ridiculous.
According to Allen, the laws don't even allow water or Nerf guns.
City council members in Washington Terrace are revisiting their ban.
