Several state lawmakers are looking to introduce new laws aimed at regulating the sale of toy guns, though not ones like in the photo accompanying this article.

Rather, it's legislation born from the recent incident where a 13-year-old Santa Rosa teen was shot and killed by police last month after they mistook his toy gun for a real AK-47.

The lawmakers say they hope new legislation would help prevent a similar incident from happening again.

There is already a law in Los Angeles County that insures toy guns don't closely resemble existing firearms.

The lawmakers say a similar law is needed across the state.
