Handy Crafts for Criminals

I was thinking the idea to keep kids safer by putting orange tips on toy guns was a nice idea. I have read news stories where someone was holding a toy gun and police thought it was real and shot the person. I am not sure how often it happens, but when I checked google there were quite a few of these stories.

While I was thinking about how great all of this was I wondered, "Why don't criminals just by some flourescent paint and paint the tips of their guns?".

Probably becasue being a criminal equals being dumb. Besides, it probably wouldn't fool the cops long. "Hey, why are bullets coming out of that toy gun?"
