    Did you not watch the whole movie? The father says he had one as a child & the boy asked for it.

    That was what he asked for. I got one as a kid too.

    Why not?  The kid wasn't some incompetent soy-fed wuss like kids today.  He could responsibly handle one.

    First of all, it was a BB gun and secondly it was back in the 1930s when it was common for kids to have BB guns. Kids were generally much more responsible back then than they are today. I attended school back in the 40's and 50's and most kids had a knife in their pocket to whittle with.  Many households had guns and believe it or not, there were no mass murders. Actually, except for ghetto areas there were very few murders at all.
