Realistic toy guns should not be banned in the United States. Banning such a product is an attack on the rights of a U.S. Citizen. Toy guns have been a piece of boyhood culture since their creation, and never has there been a Current law maintains that airsoft guns ("BB" guns that fire 6mm pellets) should have an orange tip painted on the barrel to distinguish the toy from a real firearm. Some ultra-realistic airsoft guns do not have these, and as a result must be treated like a real firearm until entering a facility like an airsoft field where they can be safely used without the possibility of being mistaken for real weapons. There is nothing wrong with the way this system is currently working. The link the Pro provided leads to a page where an article about the shooting of a child with a toy gun is posted. It is no secret to anyone that shootings of children who have toy guns are not common occurances. They are so rare, in fact, that I was unable to find any government statistics on such occurances. By this, I can argue that Pro is guilty of cherry picking fallacy, leading the audience to assume that the issue is important enough to require an absolute destruction of civil rights. "Toy" guns or airsoft guns are simply not to blame here, and must not be banned. The people who use the toys or airsoft guns in violent or threatening ways ARE at fault.
