Warner Bros did this years ago. Not the guns, but other things. Case in point:
Bugs/Elmer cartoon “The Rabbit Of Seville”
In one part, Elmer is in the barber chair and Bugs lathers him up with shaving cream. Next Bugs climbs on top of Elmer’s chest, pulls out Elmer’s necktie and a HUGE straight razor and strops the razor on the tie. Then you see Bugs slash back and forth on Elmer’s face as Elmer yells “Ow, oh, oh, ow.....” Then Bugs walks in front of Elmer with a mirror singing, “There, you’re nice and clean, although your face looks like it might have gone thru a ma-chine.”
In the edited version, Bugs lathers up Elmer’s face, then walks in front of him with the mirror.
I noticed this back in the 80’s.
BTW I have a copy of the unedited version.
I’m glad I got to see them all when I was a kid. Even back then, they were pretty old(this was in the mid 80s). I looked forward to watching them during ‘Saturday morning cartoons’ every week. Back then, the only time you’d see cartoons on TV would be on Saturday mornings.

We bought a group of DVDs with all the the unedited versions, the “Censored 11” and Song of the South.
