 Did you/will you let your toddler play with toy guns? If not, at what age do you think it would be appropriate?

He has toy guns, even when he don't have a gun he pretends. But we have taught him you never point it at people or animals.

I'm not discouraging guns, but it hasn't come up in our house. Probably cuz our older kids are both girls. We'll see what happens when Oliver gets older.

They don't even play with water guns to be honest. They have been taught about gun safety since they are around cousins with bb guns on occasion. Especially since their cousin shot himself in the toe and required surgery to remove the bb.
