That counted for real guns, toy guns, sticks, and fingers. I taught my kids the same. Even a 5 year old should know better.
Course I once had an argument with Hubby as he was aiming an “unloaded” rifle in the house(not at anybody). I told him not to be doing that in the house. He said that it was not loaded and made fun of me for my concern.
I told him that was just the way that some people accidentally got shot and killed, and left the room. Two seconds later I heard a strange noise.
Went back into the room, and looked at Hubby's red face. There was a bullet hole in the kitchen cabinet. Yep, I said well, I told you so didn't I? Then I left the room again.
Concerned about another “accidental” discharge. . . this time in your direction, perhaps?
