Boy, 5, faces school suspension for building gun out of Legos1/29/2013
Legos can transport kids to imaginary worlds — and get them in real trouble. A 5-year-old boy is facing suspension after building a Lego gun at his Massachusetts school. Hyannis West Elementary warned Joseph Cardosa's parents that their son would be suspended from its after-school program if he had another gun incident. Yes, even if the firearm was pieced together from colorful plastic bricks. Joseph's parents are aghast. "It's not like he's designing a machine gun," his dad says. The principal says the school needs to maintain a safe environment: "While someone might think that making a Lego gun is just an action of a 5-year-old, to other 5-year-olds, that might be a scary experience."
