Toy guns?

Moms are you against toy guns?  Does it bother you to see boys playing with guns?

We are out at the lake this weekend at my in laws place.  My 5 year old was in the yard playing with one of the many toy guns my inlaws have here.  The next door neighbour came ove and gave him crap for playing guns around her girls.....who were in our yard!!  I wish I had been here when it happened I would have said something to her.   My boy is so embarassed to have gotten in trouble from another parent for something he didn't think was wrong.  

Would it bother you to see a 5 year old playing guns in the yard?

My dd has never been interested in toy guns, never seen any kids playing with toy guns so Idk, never had to deal with it.

No it wouldn't bother me but I also grew up playing with them sometimes. I haven't seen kids playing with them in years.

No guns in my house.  Not even toy guns.

We do nerf guns. I started out thinking I'd do no guns but you soon learn with 3 sons, they turn anything into a gun. A stick, Legos, their half eaten waffle...gun.

The only toy gun DS has are nerf ones. DS and I play with them all the time. It's fun. I don't know if I would be okay with other forms of you guns. He knows not to touch the real ones. So I am not sure.

 My children have toy guns. They are not allowed to pretend to shoot people. Instead, they hunt for dinosaurs.

I am in between! I have a dd and am expecting a son in May. I do not like kids and the whole gun thing bc the way the wrold is so it is important to teach them right from wrong and do the best you can as a parent! But a home, like a nerf gun, that does not bother me! Water guns, no problem!

Boys will turn anything into a gun/laser.  He turned his sisters barbie into one!  lol

He plays Star Wars mostly with them.  We are Canadian and don't even know anyone who owns a real gun except for our police friends and family.

My son will turn ANYTHING into a gun. So its a losing battle . We just teach him not to shoot at other people . So he pretends he's shooting at a monster or something lol

My oldest had one, a water gun and it's bright green. It wouldn't bother me if more were bought for them.
