What is the simulated firearms law?

Governor Abercrombie signed the simulated firearms bill into law. The bill defines a simulated firearm. So what is it? It's a weapon that substantially resembles a firearm, can reasonably be perceived as a firearm, or is used or brandished as a firearm. If the person uses a simulated firearm during a robbery or threatening case, he/she will be charged as if it was a real firearm.
