BRIGHTON, Colo. — A 5 year-old girl was suspended from kindergarten on Monday for bringing a gun to Southeast Elementary School.
It sounds alarming, but the weapon was a bubble gun, a popular plastic toy sold at stores across Colorado.
The girl’s mother, who goes by Emma, said she was shocked when she got a call from the school telling her she needed to pick up her daughter and take her home.
“If they had contacted me and said can you make sure this doesn’t happen again, we just want you to be aware, I think that would have been a more appropriate way to handle the situation. Could we have a warning? It blows bubbles,” she said.
