Check some of the early volumes of The Complete Peanuts and you'll see Charlie Brown, Lucy, and the rest of the gang playing with toy guns (or even using their pointer fingers as guns) quite a lot.  It was accepted as a common style of play without quibble or question -- and Schulz, being a war veteran and all, couldn't be accused of being any sort of "gun nut".
