The future king of England looked down the barrel of the gun and played with his mother Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, pointing the gun at her face. He and his sister Princess Charlotte sat on the grass watching their father, Prince William, take part in Sundays Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy match at the Beaufort Polo Club.
Critics accused the royal family of insensitivity given the recent spike in violence nationwide, which has included a number of knife attacks in London.

Not to worry. The little prince isn’t Muslim, so he’s not learning to kill non-Muslims. Rather, the Left wingers should worry about the young Muslims who are.
Photos of Prince George playing with a toy gun have caused debate. Heres what the experts say.
Parenting expert Sarah Ockwell-Smith told The Independent, I understand why gun play worries parents, however research shows that any aggression demonstrated while engaging in war play is not carried over into real life. ie: kids who play with guns become no more violent than those who dont.
I had a personalized belt and holster with my initials on it that my late father had made during one of his numerous tours of Okinawa, an island he helped conquer. I have no idea how many toy guns I had over the years.
If all Brits had guns there wouldn't be a crime problem....................
Lucky you. Even though my father was a former Marine, he was into only golf when I was a kid and my mother confiscated every toy gun I made. I’d turn my old, broken hockey sticks into pistols, rifles and SMGs and run around the neighborhood. As soon as she confiscated them, I’d build another.
I ran away and joined The Army at 19 (before returning to college) and ever since have had a healthy collection.
I knew a lot of kids who played “Army”, and haven’t seen any of them show up on the news.
My favorite was an AWESOME M-14 with a magazine and little bullets, though you couldn’t fire it...darn it!
If my memory serves me right, it came with a .45 too!
I could understand a plastic water gun, but... giving a child adult toys?
It all depends on who is outraged.
My late father retired when I was in kindergarten but I got to hear a lot of interesting stories from three wars and peacetime. Hopefully he, like all the other men and women who are gone are smiling down on President Trump’s peace efforts. This is for you and me:
The Army Goes Rolling Along - Official
Now for our fathers:
That’s because kids playing like to play act- and that’s all it is- play acting- but they eventually outgrow that desire- and never go on to confuse play acting with reality-
It is uncontrolled anger and an inability to control one’s emotions that causes unstable people to commit horrible crimes- not play acting as children. Play acting infact helps children learn to become social citizens, stable citizens- citizens able to control their emotions eventually- as they interact with their friends- There simply is no evidence that playing cops and robbers leads to violent crimes- infact the majority of evidence proves it is healthy part of growing up
When my kids were little and they played with toy guns, I had one rule - don’t shoot your sister.
You know that and I know that, but Leftists, with all their “superior intellect” and over-representation in the mental health field seem to never understand that.
He is learning early his princely duties
A toy water gun? oh noes!!...was it loaded too?!?!...
yes, but only with 7 drops- high capacity water reservoirs have been outlawed
