P.S. I think posing a child with a gun is stupid, and sends the wrong message (to the child). I was raised with firearm safety (dad had guns). If I violated even the tiniest rule with a firearm I would have been grounded for 6 months. I never did, and also never fetishized them. They were something that could get me in a lot of trouble if I mishandled them in any way whatsoever.
