Kindergarten Girl Suspended Over Bubble Gun Returns To Class

MOUNT CARMEL, Pa. (January 31, 2013)--A 5-year-old kindergartner is headed back to class in central Pennsylvania after she was suspended for comments she made to another girl about a pink toy gun that blows soapy bubbles

Officials say the girl, whose name has not been released, told one of her classmates earlier this month in the Mount Carmel Area School District she was going to shoot her with a Hello Kitty pink bubble gun machine.

She was later suspended 10 days, but the discipline was reduced to two.

Robin Ficker, an attorney representing the family, says the girl will return to class at Mount Carmel Elementary School on Thursday.

Ficker has said the girl didn't even have the bubble gun with her and has never fired a real gun.
