Is the good reverend aware that several of the clergy invented improvements in firearms during their off time from the pulpit? The Scots Reverend Forsythe invented the percussion cap which revolutionized the rapid fire capabilities of small arms. Sort of the 30 round magazine of the 1830's.
I used toy guns to teach my children gun safety. Once in a grocery store checkout line my five year old had his cowboy outfit on and a customer behind us tried to get him to play cowboys and indians, but my son wouldn't play the game with him. He asked why, and I told him my son was taught never to point a gun at someone, even in play. The embarrassed customer sheepishly apologized.
