My 9yo and 14yo have a lot of friends who play "realistic" FPSes (with the "M" rating that goes along with them). They are interested in the genre, and especially interested in 4-player local offline multiplayer (like Halo).
I want to give them an FPS to play with their friends when they're in our home, but Metroid Prime 2 alone isn't cutting it anymore.

TL;DR:
FPS or similar.
Local Multiplayer.
Rated lower than M.
Any console.

Any suggestions?

I can't really 'recommend' these, as I've not played them in local multi-player, but 3 games come to mind as I have them:
Goldeneye - Wii
TimeSplitters 2 - GameCube
007 Nightfire - Gamecube

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

I would say Banjo Tooie for 64, but just getting a Nintendo 64 along would be expensive.

If you have a Dreamcast or PS2 I would look into Fur Fighters. It can be played in both first person and third person and is kid friendly there is no blood instead charcters are stuffed animals where stuffing comes out when shot instead of blood. Both can be found pretty cheap too.

Goldeneye 007 (Wii)/Goldeneye 007 Reloaded (360/PS3) - Developed by the same company that makes Call of Duty, so it fearures very similar gameplay, but thanks to the James Bond license, the blood is toned down. However, I'm not sure what kind of local multiplayer it has, so look into it first. RATED "T".

Lost Planet 2 (360/PS3) - This shooter is 3rd person (you can see your character), but it's very much designed to be played multiplayer. 4 people can play through the main story mode co-operatively together. Most prominent gore you'll see is bright green/yellow/orange goop from attacking the aliens' weak points (they're most similar to giant bugs). No gore from human enemies. I've only played the first game (which is single player focused), but in terms of bad content, the second game looks no different. RATED "T".

Splatoon (Wii U) - Multiplayer 3rd person shooter, where players control humanoid squids that fire brightly colored ink at each other (with all sorts of whacky weapons). When defeated, characters explode as ink. Very online focused, not sure what kinds of local multiplayer it has. RATED "E".

Currently Playing:
Switch - Blade Strangers
PS4 - Kingdom Hearts III, Tetris Effect (VR)

It has a local two player mode, but it's different from the normal multiplayer.

Splatoon is rated E10+. It would be virtually impossible to have an E rated FPS given the nature of the genre.

Splatoon aside, I can't really think of any kid-friendly FPS games. There are the Call of Duty games on DS (they require one copy each per player). The multiplayer is quite good, but given how dated these games are, I'm not sure whether your children would be interested in them. The DS versions of Call of Duty, unlike the console versions, are rated T. Incidentally, some of them are even rated as low as PG in Australia (equivalent to E10+ or PEGI's 7 ratings).
