A SYDNEY man has been arrested for carrying a toy cap gun into an eastern suburbs shopping centre, after police were called by alarmed passers-by.
Police were first alerted to the man and his gun at 4pm (AEST) today, when a member of the public called to say he had been seen walking towards Westfield's Eastgardens Shopping Centre in Pagewood, carrying the handgun.
Police arrested him at the scene, and say they found a toy cap gun in his possession.

Probably a result of the same "zero tolerance" nonsense that gets scouts expelled from school for leaving their pocket knife in their packs or little girls strip searched for having an aspirin.
I was suspended in the third grade for having a pocket knife in school from fishing with my dad the day before. The worst part is that I found the knife myself and got so scared that I turned it in to the teacher... and they still suspended a scared eight year old boy.
I haven't thought about that in years (I'm 22 now).

We really don't know what he was doing with it, nor do we know what he planned to do with it.
