57. What real danger is posed by these guns?
The CNN story talks about criminals using them against police, but criminals don't buy custom-painted guns at premium prices, they use whatever cheap crap they can get their hands on. And if a criminal did want a candy-colored gun, they could get a can of pink spray paint for a lot cheaper than the cost of sending a gun to Jim's Gun Supply.

These things are like the art cars of the gun world, owned by a small number of people who are heavily into the shooting sports and very safety-conscious; not the types who leave guns lying around the house for children to find. Guns like these have been circulating for years, and I've never heard of one being used in a crime or accidental shooting.
