I like Icono's idea, but I can just hear the screams in today's world!!
By the time I was 8-9, I had my own bb gun and had stomped the woods hunting with Grandpa, Tatu and Didu. Back in the day, up here when a boy turned 12, he took the hunter's safety course and could legally carry a rifle in the woods with an adult-it was quite the rite of passage for us.
That was the summer Tatu was killed and even with the move to the farm and all of that insanity, I still got to carry a real, live G-U-N into the woods that year. We learned a lot about responsibility and respect for what we were doing. This carried on for me even to the farming world. I understood that we were taking a life in order to eat and to respect that.
As to these 2 however....they get their ears chewed off, and the Nerf guns are confiscated to for a period to be determined. I hope the ornament can be either repaired or have the crack placed in a somewhat inconspicuous spot and I'll TRY to calm the SO down to the more rational level.
