Do you let your kids play with toy guns?

Posted by   + Show Post

 Do you believe toy guns lead to real gun violence or do you consider them just toys? Do you let your kids play with toy guns?

Yes I do believe that playing with toy guns leads to eventually wanting to play with real guns and causing children to be more aggressive and violent,I don't allow my children to play with toy guns or even water guns.

No I do not. That is a huge rule in my house that no guns are allowed.

Yes. It's just a toy.

It just kills me that I hear about kids in kindergarten being suspended for using their finger as a gun or talking about their hello kitty toy gun bubble blower they have at home. I guess I just miss my youth were people minded their own business and let kids be kids. Sheesh.

Yup. We have Nerf gun wars all the time. Those little shits have better aim than me at this point!

I dont believe fake guns lead to real violence but I have seen kids get a little to into it but as long as parents explain real gun safety and all I think its ok. I dont personally let my kids play with them because I think they are too young to understand.
