NBC NATIONAL NEWS — A Hopkinton, Massachusetts mother says a school went too far when her son was sent to the principal's office for bringing a toy gun to the school.
Five-year-old Jonah Stone's mother says a toy gun is what got him suspended for a half day.
"So I went to the school and when I got there, they had said that he had a toy gun with him and that he was being suspended," said Christina Stone, mother.
The boy told his mother he brought the toy gun to school in his jacket pocket and that when he pulled it out to show another student, he ended up in the principal's office.
"I'm pretty shocked, because he's a kindergartner and he wasn't being mean, he wasn't trying to hurt people, he wasn't trying to scare anyone. He wasn't pulling the trigger," Stone said.
