Not in many excellently evolved contemporary societies, it isn't.

I only have to worry that their friends might not have the same skills and training if their friends' parents are scared of guns.
You don't need any weapons training to be taught not to handle guns, and to get away and tell an adult if you ever see other children handling them without adult supervision. And there's certainly no need to snidely label all those who don't like guns as being "afraid" of them; it only makes you look bad.
