Girl, 5, Suspended For Threatening To Shoot Girl With Her Hello Kitty Toy Gun
"A 5-year-old Pennsylvania girl who told another girl she was going to shoot her with a pink Hello Kitty toy gun that blows soapy bubbles has been suspended from kindergarten.
Her family has hired an attorney to fight the punishment, which initially was 10 days for issuing a 'terroristic threat.' But her punishment was reduced to two days after her mother met with school officials and had the incident dropped to 'threatening to harm another student,' which apparently carries a lesser punishment.
A school official overheard the remark and searched the girl's backpack and did not find the Hello Kitty gun."
In heaven angels blow bubbles at each other with pink Hello Kitty toy guns. The Hello Kitty brand has a patent on innocence, wholesomeness and goodness. It's no wonder that females from three to sixty-three love any product that bears the Hello Kitty trademark.

Only a mindless bureaucrat, a crazed terrorist, or a hardline Communist would take offense at a 5-year-old girl threatening to shoot bubbles at another girl with her Hello Kitty toy gun.
Stop the insanity! It's a pink toy gun that shoots bubbles, for God's sake!
The Hello Kitty weapon of mass destruction wasn't even found in the little girl's backpack.
