The city of San Jose has outlawed the sale of realistic toy guns to prevent "tragic incidents" like last February's San Francisco police killing of a teen-ager. The City Council adopted a law banning the sale, manufacture and distribution of realistic replicas of handguns, rifles, shotguns, automatic weapons and rocket launchers.

First baseman Will Clark of the San Francisco Giants stops in occasionally for lunch on game days at Perry's on Union Street. That's one piece of business that could head south if San Francisco's baseball team finds its way to San Jose. "This stupid city, which I love, is so narrow-minded to have let the Giants possibly get away," Perry Butler, the restaurant's owner, said Wednesday after San Jose Mayor Susan Hammer and Giant owner Bob Lurie announced a deal to send the team to the South Bay.

With telling ease, he coolly outgunned the leading candidate city, Mountain View, and landed the museum.
