Pennsylvania Girls Suspended For Talking About Shooting Hello Kitty "Bubble Gun"

Sent home for "terroristic threat"

(CNN) — A 5-year-old girl chats up classmates while waiting for the bus after school. The topic: Playing with a Hello Kitty "bubble gun" that, with the flick of a finger, blows bubbles everywhere.

"I'll shoot you, you shoot me, and we'll all play together," the kindergartner says.

The next day, that remark—which was made innocently, according to the lawyer for the girl's family, who related the story—landed the young central Pennsylvanian child in the principal's office.
