Kindergartner Suspended for Threatening to Shoot Classmate With ‘Hello Kitty’ Bubble Gun

A five-year-old girl was suspended from kindergarten for telling a classmate she was going to shoot her with a toy gun. The toy is a Hello Kitty plastic gun that shoots bubbles. A school official overheard the remark and searched the girl’s backpack but didn’t find the gun.

The Mount Carmel Area Elementary School originally suspended the child for 10 days for making what they called a "terroristic threat."

The punishment was later reduced to two days. The girl’s family has hired a lawyer and is fighting the suspension.

In the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, is the school's reaction appropriate or does the suspension go too far? Tell us what you think by commenting below.
