Episodes such as you described @Von Jones are some of the several reasons I never allowed toy guns in my house. I feel they foster a casual attitude toward firearms. When you use them to practice, it should seem a bit scary, and when you shoot and kill something, particularly a large animal, you realize what a powerful tool they are. Just as children shouldn't be around a table saw unsupervised, they shouldn't be around firearms without supervision and instruction. I have no problem with anyone who doesn't feel comfortable not having firearms around the house.
