Good afternoon. I'll be assisting you with your question.
No, there are no laws against carrying a toy gun or sword, as long as it isn't used for some illegal purpose.
For example, it is illegal to put someone in fear of death or serious bodily injury, which pointing a toy gun at someone may do. If, however, you just, say, had it in your waist band, there would not be anything illegal about that. Keep in mind, however, that other people and law enforcement may not know it is a toy, so you could run into some trouble with the perception that it is real. Ultimately, however, just carrying it as a "fashion accessory" is not itself illegal.
Thank You. I am doing a freedom study.
Glad to help. Sounds very interesting.
As a word of advice, I would not reccomend walking around with what people may think is a gun, but, legally, you can.
If there isn't anything else I can do for you, please remember to "rate" my answer.
Good luck with your study.
