When Will America Finally Enact Sensible Blaster Control Legislation?

Another blaster incident in Kansas as activists demand stricter blaster control laws for stormtroopers.



Source: The Wrap

A man dressed as a storm trooper caused a commotion in Salina, Kansas this week when a local business owner called 911 to report the man after mistaking his BlasTech Industries E-11 blaster rifle for an AK-47. According to a report from The Wrap, Christopher Burns was actually filming videos for Vine, where he posts as Stormtrooper Sam, and not searching for two droids suspected of carrying plans for an experimental weaponized space station.

Police officers cautioned Burns about being responsible while carrying a blaster in public. Though open carry laws in Kansas mean that it is legal to walk around with the gun, whether it's an E-11 or an AK-47, fashion police are looking into whether charges can be brought against Burns for Star Wars cosplay outside a comic convention or movie premiere. As a public service, The Outhouse has compiled this easy to use guide for Kansas residents to hopefully avoid this type of confusion in the future:

BlasTech Industries E-11 Blaster Rifle

AK-47 Type 2

Storm Troopers

Afghan Rebels

 

Hopefully this clears things up. We'll keep you updated.
