Companies to Pay Fines for Illegal Toy Gun Sales in N.Y.

Schneiderman's office says that 30 online retailers from around the United States used Amazon.com to get around this law.
Of the over 5,000 illegal toy guns, 1,337 were sold to New York City customers, Schneiderman said.
Over the summer, a number of retailers- a such as Wal-Mart, Sears, Kmart and Amazon agreed to keep realistic toy guns off their shelves in New York state.
