My 2 year old is obsessed with guns, he calls them boomers. We don't even have TV, but he has seen them on the Ratatouille movie. I thought he would just give it up, but he turns everything into a gun and trys to shoot rats. Its been months! He also points it at me. I hate it, it disturbs me. Should I ignore the behavior, punish the behavior or try to educate him about guns?

I have to agree wholeheartedly with gemgem. My husband is SF in the Army so there is no way that I can shied my son from the fact that guns are real. He is an avid hunter, so we have guns. They are of course kept in gun safe, but when my son is older, he is going to know that they are there. We will also be teaching my son gun safety.
Just remember guns don't kill people, people kill people with guns.
