Toy Gun With Realistic Look Causes Concern

A toy gun sold at the Dollar Zone looks real. It even comes with a scope that puts out a red laser beam. The gun also fires BBs.

The store says they sold about 30 of the toy guns in the last week.

Many convenience store owners say it's too real to remain on the market. With the holiday season here, police say robberies do tend to increase.

Paul Dobbins, the owner of Dollar Zone, says he sells the toy because it's just a toy. He says a lot of kids use it for paintball.

Dobbins added the only drawback is that it looks like a real gun.
