Angelina Wears Machine Gun Charm Maddox Drew

Angelina Jolie's Gun Charm: Kid Friendly or Are You Kidding?

Angelina Jolie's played a gun-toting woman on screen and is a weapon-wearing mama off camera. For a recent Entertainment Weekly interview and photo shoot, the stunning soon-to-be mother of six wore a gun charm necklace that her eldest son, Maddox designed. She said:

''Mad, our 6-year-old, draws lots of war scenarios,'' she explains. ''He's all into war and guns. So for Mother's Day he drew a machine gun, and Brad had it made into a necklace, which is really sweet. It's really cute. I think it's really good!''

While there's nothing better than a homemade gift for mom, is jewelry in the likeness of a fully automatic firearm taking the notion too far?

her stylist put it on her. im sure she doesn't wear that around the kids- she has to uphold her bad-girl persona somehow. Found some AWESOME charms at http://www.designjewelry.com

there is no shame in guns my dad was a cop and we were raised with them i think i was a better shot at 9 then i am today the important thing is the both parents teach their kids that real guns are not for play (they kill) and how to practice gun safety to follow through with our gun safety training my dad use to let my little brother play with toy guns as long as he never pointed them at anyone parents and education are the key

Considering gun movies make the most money for Brad and Angie movies, I gues they would indulge their kids in gun play. I hope they at least teach them gun safety and responsibility at some point.

If her kid was drawing syringes full of heroin, should she have that made into a necklace too?

Angelina is the biggest hypocrite of our time. Doing the whole UN thing in combination with shooting movies (wanted) about killing people and promoting guns and war in her home is just one example.

Frankly, this equals keeping gun drawing of our own children on the fridge or any other place we keep them on display. Only Brad and Angie have munny so they turn drawings to gold LOL Humankind is just too obsessed with thinking that celebrities must be... perfect by everyone's rules and standards...

The main problem with it is since Angelina has one, all moms will want one. I don't find anything horrible about play guns, but this is a bit much.

I like Angelina Jolie ,always have as i think she is very unique with her candor and her rare beauty is a plus. The gun drawing made into jewalry from her 6 yr old son is what it is. My son played with swords,drew pics of swords but today as a young man swords are the last thing on his mind. Hes fine a son to be proud of. Parents teach their kids the right and wrong about weapons as i beleive Angelina and Brad have instilled in their sons mind so no worries.

I can't go back to this crazy post in PopSugar, so I'll comment here. I have a 6 year old who can at times be obsessed with guns and battles and the like. It scared me when he first started at 4 (picked up in nursery). The teachers didn't ignore it or laugh it off but they also didn't want to stifle the child's creativity by freaking out over the games they were playing. I have come to realize that boys are drawn to such things, but we are constantly talking about what is real and pretend. I tend to ignore some of the games and pictures and bring the focus on to something else. I have a hard time with the necklace and the encouragement here by Brad and Angie. Fine, they don't want to forbid it but I wouldn't further encourage it.

Not saying she's a bad mom i just don't like the gun thing!

Honestly it is a big deal. He drew a gun for her on Mother's Day and Brad made it a necklace. There showing him that guns are okay and that mommy really likes it. When he's 14 and 24 he's gonna wanna play with real ones. Not that he's going to go out and shoot someone but what if he has kids and there's an accident. Promoting guns and your a U.N. ambassador is contradictory. I know that he's exposed to his country's history and where he came from and that's probably where it came from but I think she wants to be this totally hip parent at the expense of her boys.

I grew up with three brothers and two sisters. We pretended to be cowboys, war soldiers, James Bonds, cops and robbers, and even fought creatures from outer space. None of us grew up to be violent people. All children play make-believe. Does a police officer's child become violent just because his parent owes a gun? I wonder if this would be such a big deal if it wasn't about Angelina. Leave the woman alone. She seems to be a wonderful, loving mother. She helps spread peace and awareness around the world.
