My 14 y.o. is fascinated with war history (watches "Mail Call"
frequently), weaponry of all eras AND many, many other complex
machines. He's also a peace activist.
Why would I limit his interest in history and weapons, just because
there are other things to explore?

That's like saying: "why the interest in birds when there are so
many other intersting creatures to explore?"

An interest in guns has nothing to do with a love for violence. One
does not lead to the other.
