Does that mean you are the Commander on the Navy then? How could I have overlooked the Duke of York as Commander-in-chief?
It's hard to imagine giving a child a gun with plastic bullets! Isreal & Palestine come first to my mind! But I suppose you were an older child, right? I, myself, am resistant to giving my son any type of gun at all. But all of his friends have them so my husband and I relented and let him have one of those huge water-guns. All the boys in the neighborhood had those bright Star Wars guns that have batteries and make all sorts of electric noises and my son was always borrowing one when they all got together and played whatever they play with guns at that age (5-8). I bought him a bright orange Star Wars gun for Christmas and he was so pleased to show it off to his friends, only to find that his mother was far behind the times. Every boy (and I mean every boy!)in the neighborhood was given a realistic-looking pop-gun for Christmas! (well, those things that use little strips of padded gunpowder and when the hammer falls on it it cracks a pop. I'm not sure what they are called.) I draw that line there! At least for now. It's amazing what peer pressure can do with the entire family's beliefs!
