Replica gun confiscated at ETHS

Replica guns -- BB guns designed to look like 9mm handguns -- have turned up in two incidents in Evanston this week. One was used to rob a pizza delivery driver. Another was confiscated at Evanston Township High School after a student was spotted with it tucked in his waistband. WLS-TV reports similar incidents in Chicago have led aldermen there to propose a ban on replica guns.
