Is a blank firing gun a real gun?

No. A blank firing gun is a replica of the real fire arm that is intended to only simulate actions of its real counterpart. It cannot fire any projectile and it cannot be converted to fire any projectiles. Blank guns are typically is what you would see on a movie screen.

Do I need a license to have a blank firing gun?

No, license is not required to have a blank firing gun as it is a non-lethal replica. All modern blank firing guns feature a non-removable orange tip that is required by ATF and all other lawful federal agencies.
We do advise to use caution and take protective measures when transporting blank firing guns or other props. Store them in a trunk. Do not brandish the article in public as this may result in panic.

What is the difference between a top firing blank gun and front firing blank gun?

The top firing blank gun vents the flame and / or fume from the top of the barrel after the blank cartridge is discharged. The barrel (in modern replicas) will be plugged with an orange tip and you won’t be able to see inside the barrel. Most common models are the Bruni blank guns.
The front firing blank gun vents the flame from the front / tip of the barrel when the cartridge is fired. The barrel will typically have an orange tip around the barrel and the barrel would be hollow.
