Amazon.com will not deliver a toy cowgirl playset to Chicago residents, apparently because of a municipal law in the city forbidding replica toy firearms.
The hot pink ensemble — “everything a kid needs to be a ‘real’ Western cowgirl!” — comes with a child-size cowgirl hat, a holster festooned with a silhouetted horse and rider and a six-pointed badge with a shirt clip and space for a name.
There’s also a silver and pink cap gun among the accessories.

Violators of the law can be fined up to $750 and imprisoned for as long as six months for each offense.
