Angelina Jolie Took Son Toy Gun Shopping?
A recent trip to the toy store turned into a scene from “Rambo” on Thursday when Angelina Jolie and her son Pax walked out with a toy rifle.
The movie star was seen smiling as her camouflage-clad 8-year-old aimed the mock weapon at some paparazzi nearby.
I was surprised that Jolie encouraged this violent behavior – especially since she’s so high-profile. And as UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, she’s seen the devastation that war can cause and despite some of the action films she’s been in (“Salt” for example”), she struck me as the anti toy gun type.
I know that “boys will be boys” - I don’t buy guns for my son, but he has a unique talent for turning ANYTHING into a toy gun. Pretzels, straws, his fingers, tennis rackets – you name it. And on many occasions, his two-year-old sister has turned into an unsuspecting hostage. But I try not to encourage it.
Do you buy toy guns for your kids? Do you think celebs should go out of their way not to glamorize fake weapons?
