I am not a fan of toy guns by any means. I do not allow my boys to have them. I think there is way to much violence today, why should I let my kids pretend to kill each other? The other day my 5 yr old son came home from a visit with a family member and he had two new toy guns. I had made it clear how I felt about them but was told I was over reacting and they are just being boys. My son was so upset with me when I took them away, I felt bad. I am wondering how others mom's feel about toy gun use? Do you think it desensitizes kids to violence?
