Please don't bash me but I need some help. My 3 year old boy likes to pretend to shoot things. My hubby just says that it is what boys do. I don't agree! My hubby hunts and we have guns in our house. They are all locked in the safe. My dad and my hubby's dad all have guns that are locked in a safe. I am concerned I know he does not understand what a gun can do. Every time I see him doing this I stop him and tell him we do not shoot people animals or things! I tell him guns hurt people! He did get one toy gun for his birthday(that I took away right away)from his uncle. I have told everyone that he can not have toy guns until he understands what a gun is and what it can do. I have asked him who shoots things and he tells me the man on open season has a gun. He loves that movie but I no longer let him watch it. How do I explain to him that shooting and guns can really hurt someone?
