Posted: 8:21 AM- SOUTH JORDAN - South Jordan city leaders are considering a ban on air guns, BB guns, paintball guns and some firearms replicas.
Police say they've had more than 15 complaints in the past year and a half about fake weapons that were thought to be real.
The police department recently responded to a 911 call of a man lying in the bushes with a rifle that turned out to be fake.
Police are asking the City Council to ban certain kinds of weapons and the fakes. The rule would require residents to notify police if they plan to use items listed in the ordinance.
Similar ordinances have already been passed in Salt Lake City, West Jordan, West Valley City and North Salt Lake.
The South Jordan council is expected to discuss the proposal June 17.
