Just because kids played with something back in the “old days,” doesn’t mean it’s a cute, “Mayberry” toy today. It’s against the city ordinances to shoot a BB gun or pellet gun in Wilmington.
Slingshots, however, get a little bit of a reprieve.
According to Section 6-7 of Wilmington’s City Code and Ordinances, “No person shall throw stones or use a sling or discharge gravel, marbles, shot or anything out of a slingshot, blow gun or other device or implement of like kind or character along across or upon any sidewalk or street.”
(Code 1962, § 29-3)
