Major retailers are illegally selling prohibited toy guns online, the N.Y Attorney General's office alleged Thursday.

Eric Schneiderman's office sent cease and desist letters to the retailers (Wal-Mart (WMT), Amazon.com (AMZN), K-Mart, Sears (SHLD) and ToyArsenal.com) to halt sales of these toy guns to New Yorkers immediately. One K-Mart also sold these guns in a Rochester, New York, location, the office alleged.

None of these retailers immediately responded to CNBC's requests for comments.

New York state law prohibits retailers from selling guns in realistic colors unless it has one-inch-wide orange stripe running down both sides of the barrel and the front end of the barrel that cannot be removed.

"When toy guns are mistaken for real guns, there can be tragic consequences," Schneiderman said in a release. "New York State law is clear: retailers cannot put children and law enforcement at risk by selling toy guns that are virtually indistinguishable from the real thing."

Wal-Mart already had a court order prohibiting it from selling toy guns after an earlier investigation of the chain's in-store toy gun sales

ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? When I was a child, boy played with toy guns ALL THE TIME! We grew up on VIOLENT CARTOONS like you wouldn't believe! We did NOT GO AROUND KILLING PEOPLE and shooting up schools, theaters, etc. The PROBLEM IS A TERRIBLE DISRESPECT FOR HUMAN LIFE. IT STEMS FROM THE BREAK DOWN OF THE FAMILY UNIT! It comes from Parents NOT TEACHING THEIR CHILDREN RESPECT! It comes from STUPIDITY! It comes from lack of MORALS AND PRINCIPLES! Do you want to keep going? liberals HAVE DESTROYED THIS COUNTRY AND THEY ARE DESTROYING THE WORLD! THE END. That's the PROBLEM IN A NUTSHELL!

After the Ohio incident , I am surprised WalMart is touching this market with a 10 ft pole.. seriously how much do they make in the whole scheme of things?

Is Toni Janelle's real name?

Nope. She's out of town right now. If you want to know, just ask her. I know, but that's because I'm black. :devil:
