    I have a 5 year old son who is starting to play with toy guns. I\'m not sure whether I should let him shoot at other kids (the toy doesn't really shoot anything) or whether I should tell him about the safety rules. This would mean essentially toy guns are never to be used since you really have to point and shoot and keep your finger on the trigger.

    I would hate to be \"that\" parent (and probably confused with a gun banning type who would prohibit kids from ever touching even a toy gun). On the other hand, if I want to teach my children about firearms it may be hard for them, at least initially, to keep real from fake gun being confused. It seems there is no middle ground. Any thoughts? Thanks.
