          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
     1    Section 1. Subdivision 2 of section 871 of the general  business  law,

     3  follows:
     4    2. "Imitation weapon" means any device  or  object  made  of  plastic,
     5  wood,  metal or any other material which substantially duplicates or can
     6  reasonably be perceived to be an actual firearm, air rifle, pellet  gun,
     7  or  "B-B"  gun,  including an attachment to an electronic device; unless
     8  such imitation weapon (a) is colored other than black, blue,  silver  or
     9  aluminum,  (b)  is marked with a non-removable orange stripe which is at
    10  least one inch in width and runs the entire length of the barrel on each
    11  side and the front end of the barrel, and (c) has a barrel at least  one
    12  inch in diameter that is closed for a distance of not less than one-half
    13  inch  from  the  front-end of its barrel with the same material of which
    14  the imitation weapon is made. "Imitation weapon" does  not  include  any
    15  nonfiring  replica  of  an  antique  firearm,  the original of which was
    16  designed, manufactured and produced prior to  eighteen  hundred  ninety-
    17  eight.
    18    §  2.  This  act  shall take effect on the sixtieth day after it shall
    19  have become a law.
