No, he is not holding a gun. It is a cane. I will need to make another stencil using a view that looks more like a cane. It didn't occur to me that it didn't look like a cane (since I took the pictures!). Note to self: It is always good to get girlfriend feedback before getting too far into a project!
Blocks so far:
This is the picture I used of Jon to create the stencil.
