allow your children to play with Toy Guns?
There has been some controversey over this lately and I'm just curious.
Personally, I think that Gun Safety is the most important thing you can teach a child. My DH grew up on a farm and we are raising our kids on that same farm. My DH hunts and believe in protecting his family. Our Son will be getting his first BB gun for Christmas to start target practice. He is seven. He has toy guns and has since he was litte. He has an unlce and a great uncle who are both cops. He pretends to hunt/be a cop/rescure people/etc all the time. He knows that he is not allowed to point his guns at anyone and that they are only for playing.
I do not allow him to play games like Grand Theft Auto or any kind of game that promotes killing people/violence.
I just don't see anything wrong with little boys playing with Guns as long as they understand the difference in violence/play and real/fake guns

I don't buy my kids guns but I haven't forbidden them to play with them. My son is 9 and just makes guns out of his legos. Most of his friends have toy guns of some kind so they share with him. He's been asking for one of those Nerf guns that shoots foam darts but I won't get it. I know he would use it to shoot at his sisters. Him and a friend were playing with one one day and I took it to show him how it would hurt to get shot with one of those darts so don't point it at other kids. I didn't know how to work it and it had a hair trigger. I ended up shooting him in the eye at point blank range. Him and his friend thought it was hilarious (he didn't get hurt). I was like, "SEE WHAT I MEAN!"
