Guns sound peaceful. Huh?

Driving again...I seem to do lots of driving to and from mainly...Karate.  We live there, I should put a cot, refrigerator, and a goody cabinet there and I would be set. 

Driving I hear from the back the DVD has gone to snow in the sound.

Friend:  I love the sound of the ocean.

Z:  Huh?  What are you talking about?

F:  You know the white noise its peaceful.

Z:  I think the sound of gun fire is peaceful.

Me & F:  WHAT?!?!?!?

Z:  You know cause guns are peacemakers.

Me:  Yeah....I'm pretty sure that's not a peaceful noise. 

Z:  You don't know mom.  It could be....You never know....

This from the child who was never allowed to have a gun to play with as a small child.  Ever.  I hate to say it but boys see something about guns once that's it your toast.  They then turn everything into guns, sticks, Lego's, math blocks.  I guess I should have thought before I said I will never let my kids play with guns.....Sigh.

  1. And this is why we allow our boys to have guns. Because everything gets turned into one anyway, and we would rather they know exactly how to use it and why we don't point them at people. Unless those people are really trying to hurt us. Then it's ok.
