    Oh yes, when my son was young I did not allow him to play with guns. I will never forget the day, he was about two years old, when he was shouting “pow! pow! pow!” with a Lego piece in his hand, and when asked what he had in his hand he quickly replied “a horse.” Clearly he was playing with an imaginary gun, and yet I guess his Y-chromosome was screaming to get out.

    BTW, I find it interesting the packaging included a spot of red. I mean why did not they use green or purple in the toy gun packaging?

  • Good point……. I was shot as a child with a slug gun…boys “playing”..I blame television… then I was shot with a high powered slug gun as a teenager… arsehole acting.. I blame his y Chromosomes
