The English police have shown that they have zero tolerance for alien weaponry. In an absolutely bizarre case, a mother became upset wen a man pointing a ray gun at her and her gun and said “pow, pow” to make the baby laugh. The gun makes a sound and lights up. The police sent eight cars to apprehend the man who was sitting at a bus stop and confiscated his ray gun. He has now been criminally charged.
The man in the 50s was clearly trying to make the baby laugh, according to witnesses. He is in his 50s and was waiting for a bus. He was arrested on suspicion of possessing an imitation firearm in a public place.
I suppose it is not surprising that there are some parents who have little judgment or senses of humor. What is astonishing is that the English police seem incapable of discriminating between cranks and crimes.
At least in the states, our criminals use real Star Trek swords in the commission of crimes, here.
