ANY ITEM that looks like a gun will have to be licensed under several changes to the Weapons Act being considered by the Queensland State Government.
Even guns made out of materials as unlikely as soap or plastic may have to be kept under lock and key if they could "reasonably be taken to be a weapon".
The draft act says an imitation is a "reasonable copy" of a weapon that is not capable of causing death or injury.
"If it looks like a gun and feels like a gun, it will have to be licensed," said a government source.

Typical Queensland knee-jerk reaction to a ridiculous incident involving a toy gun.
Attempted robbery 'just a joke'
It is sensational rubbish that will go nowhere and has more than likely only even been brought up as an issue due to the impending Federal election.
Nanny state indeed!
