I do not believe he thought it was a toy gun, not for even a second.
I have to admit, I agree with you.
My grandmother died when I was seven (Of old age, I didn't kill her!) But I knew she was gone forever. I understood what death meant, I understood that you didn't even joke about hurting or killing someone.
We didn't even point finger guns unless we were REALLY angry (Then again, Kipp Kinkel had just shot up a school less than one hundred miles from where I was living, so people were on code red for super little things).
I was not stupid, and I don't think he was either. Do they even MAKE realistic looking toy guns any more? Was her gun like an ancient little thing that looked like a toy?
That little kid had good aim to get his grandmother in the head. I wonder how many Rated-M-For-Mature war simulation games he's played on top of Grand Theft Auto.
This whole thing just makes me so sad and anxious for the future generations, I mean I understand things like this have been happening since guns have been made, but now with this 24/7 news cycle it seems like it happens a lot more often.
