Article.

China being a village in North Yorkshire. Laughing

But apparently she was caught by a drop in the legal limit of an air gun from 16J to 1.8J in 2008.

Be glad she wasn't this kid:

Article.

So presumably some of them were over the 1.8J limit. Rolling Eyes The limit for airsoft guns in the Policing and Crime Bill is 2.5J

More.

Well, she wasn't operating a stand with toy guns technically, she had what sound like airsoft guns, which require a licence since 2008 if the power limit is over 1.8J. And the previous exemption was 16J for air rifles, aka 12 ft/lb, copied in from British law, presumably.
