You just described exactly how I was raised, and that is how we are raising our kids.

When I was young I pointed a toy gun at my brother. My dad made it crystal clear that you never, under any circumstance, whether it is real or fake, point a gun at a person. At a young age that taught me to respect guns.

Alright, I am back out of DC again. I just wanted to pat you on the back and tell you ,"Good job, and keep up the good work".
