The city attorney's office is drawing up an ordinance that would make the brandishing of toy guns a misdemeanor, part of a countywide movement to restrict use of replica firearms.
The measure probably will be presented to the City Council for consideration within 30 to 60 days, City Atty. Robert M. Myers said.
The council, acting on a request by Councilman Herb Katz, voted at the end of its Tuesday night meeting to direct the city attorney to draw up an ordinance.
West Hollywood passed a similar ordinance on Monday, which took effect immediately. Burbank on Tuesday gave preliminary approval to a broader ordinance that makes it illegal to sell toy weapons and a misdemeanor to wield them.
