There are a good few kids that play in the street and ride bikes around. A good few stop and ask me about my dog and a few astute ones ask me about my firearm (some wide eyed) - they typically are more observant than adults IMO!
Seems that kids haven't picked up all the biases that adults have. They really have no fear of them. Don't ask "why do you NEED a gun" - well they do but not the way adults do.
I can just imagine the conversations with their parents later "omg a gun! :what:"
I did see one boy sticking out of his parents suburban who got more wide eyed than one could imagine when he saw my 1911!
