Hi. We don't play with toy guns here. We are a military family and i think it's extremely important for my children to understand the kind of power and responsibility a person has when they hold this weapon. Sometimes they still find ways to play with pretend guns (using fingers or legos) and when this happens i tell them that if they aim it at any person it will immediately be taken away.
Well, we were at the park today and my boys were playing with some other boys who had toy guns. Not a very big deal. Lots of parents let their children play with guns. They were all chasing the "bad guys" and what not. ...okay. well a while later i came up to talk to one of my boys and the other kid pointed the toy gun straight at my sons head and "shot" him several times.
It really bothered me and i asked the child not to do that to my child again.
Would it have bothered you? Did i over step my boundaries? What would you have done?

No, I think you did the right thing. I would have done the same thing and then left.
