replica handgun

72-year-old Richard Lightcap of Gibbstown, New Jersey faces criminal charges after roaming the street  he lived on with a replica firearm, vowing to fight crime.

While holding what looked like a semi-automatic handgun, he reportedly told the four female students from Rowan University about “drugs and burglaries” in the area and explained to the young women he planned to “deal with that,” according to NJ.com.

The gun wasn’t real, but it was painted to look like the real deal. The normally-orange tip, used  to distinguish it from a real weapon, had been painted black.
