Several major retail stores are under the gun over some of the toys they’re illegally selling in New York, officials announcedThursday.

The state’s attorney general, Eric Schneiderman, sent cease and desist letters to Wal-Mart, Amazon.com, K-Mart, Sears and ToyArsenal.com telling the retailers the toy guns they’re selling online to New Yorkers are too realistic.

According to state law, toy guns are prohibited if they come in realistic colors like black, blue, silver or aluminum, unless a non-removable, one-inch-wide orange strip runs down both sides and the front end of the barrel, the attorney general’s office said.
