I've just been pottering around the kitchen thinking about toy guns...
I was a very girly child; the only things I can really remember playing with were dolls, farm animals, Lego (the girly, animal kind), dress-ups, craft, and the kind of garden-based imaginary play that an only child often seems most accomplished at. Once someone left a cap gun at my house. I had no idea it was a cap gun so it never fired a shot, but as he never visited again I claimed it as my own.
I. Just. Loved. It.
I would ride my rocking horse and pretend to be a police officer. I would shimmy down the hall with my back against the wall and jump out into doorways like I'd seen police do in movies. I loved my gun. It didn't bring out my violent side, in fact it brought out my inner law enforcer. It didn't make me want a real gun later in life. It didn't do anything at all except amuse me for many hours.
Yet when my eldest son asked me for a toy pistol a couple of years ago I refused. Why? I know from personal experience that there's most likely no harm. I know exactly the kind of scenes he would be reenacting, and they all feature pretty good role-models. I know he's a gentle child, and harbour no fears that a toy gun would somehow turn him into a mass-killer.
So why? I think I have simply grown to hate the sight of pistols and just didn't want a replica in the house. I think I found solace in the arguments of others who do not allow toy guns. And today I'm remembering how much I loved my own gun and wondering if mine are good enough reasons...
