It would appear that children holding guns has been entered as a new taboo. Other children have packed heat on Toonami in the past to include Chibi-Usa/Rini from Sailor Moon. They're supposed to be getting rid of taboos on Toonami not adding them.

Note... A shinai is the bamboo practice sword that Yahiko uses as his primary weapon. It is normally used for kendou practice and sparring so one's partner is not injured. Because it is specifically designed to minimize the prospect of injury its usefulness as a combat weapon is severely limited.
