Hello Kitty Bubble Gun Gets a 5-Year-Old Suspended [VIDEO]

I don’t know from Hello Kitty, nor would I be expected to. I do know that it’s a popular brand of toys, clothing, and accessories and has been around for some time.

There are even lines for adults–which I saw displayed on various and sundry Nashville residents last weekend. Even a grown man, scarily.

But regardless of my limited knowledge of all things Hello Kitty, I feel safe in assuming that a Hello Kitty Bubble Gun is harmless.

Nonetheless, a 5-year-old girl in Pennsylvania has been suspended for talking with her friends about shooting her bubble gun at them. She told them, “I’ll shoot you, you shoot me, and we’ll all play together.”

Now, I’m sure the school’s administration understands that a plastic gun that shoots bubbles is completely harmless. My guess is that she was suspended for using that kind of language in the wake of the Newtown tragedy.

So, I take it, this is where we are.

I am, in no way, diminishing any precautions any school might take to avoid similar tragedies in the future. But I can’t help but wonder if some of these steps aren’t too extreme.

Am I being naive? Do we really live in a society where use of a bubble gun is a gateway to far more dangerous activities? Seriously, someone please enlighten me.

Are we there now?
