5-year-old suspended for threatening to use bubble gun

A 5-year-old kindergarten student was suspended from her school in Pennsylvania, for threatening to shoot another child. Her weapon: A Hello Kitty bubble gun.

The little girl said she and a classmate should shoot each other with bubbles, and the school called it a terrorist threat.

Administrators at Mount Carmel Area Elementary took action, suspending the girl for 10 days, later reducing that to two.

The family’s lawyer said a psychology evaluation calls the girl normal, but now her record isn’t.

The attorney said the girl did not have the Hello Kitty bubble gun with her.
