A minefield, the toy/gun/gun/toy world. As it were.

When the boys were little and other (equally little) kids would come over for play dates we had to make sure where the parents stood on the whole toy gun issue lest there be...awkwardness. (If they were anti, we quietly disappeared any offending toys while the guests were visiting.)

If a boy doesn't have toy guns, he will make a stick into one or point his finger at you. I am firmly convinced it is in the male DNA. But, as Blackbird said, it is a minefield.
Your son is hilarious. Wish I could have seen that lady's face.

My general parenting attitude has been to not make a big deal over it. And it hasn't been a big deal to my sons.
I really draw the line, however, at shooter video games which are appalling even to me.
PS Keeping in mind we're rather well-prepared to fend off a small amphibious assault force ovah heah.
