BUSTED: 5-Year-Old Girl Suspended for Having Bubble Gun

A 5-year-old kindergarten student at Southeast Elementary in Brighton, CO was suspended from school after she brought a *gun onto school grounds.

*a clear, plastic princess bubble-blowing gun

Seriously.

The young girl’s mother said she had no idea the little girl took the toy in her backpack with her to school Monday morning.

“I apologized right away and said that I am so sorry she did that,” said the girl’s mother. “I appreciate that they’re trying to keep our kids safe, I really do. But there needs to be some common sense. It blows bubbles.

The kindergartener took out the bubble gun out of her backpack to show friends her new toy before school had begun. Once faculty became aware of the dangerous weapon on school grounds, the girl’s mother received a phone call instructing her to come pick up her daughter, saying she had been suspended – effective immediately.

“I asked, ‘Is it really necessary for me to come get her?’ and they said, ‘Yes, this is our zero tolerance policy, and somebody needs to come get her immediately.”

The little girl was so shaken by the event that Monday night, she asked if she could stay home and offered to clean the house instead of going to school.
