Making a mountain out of a Minifig?

A New York fourth-grader was nearly suspended from school after his principal saw him playing with a LEGO police officer Minifig that was holding a tiny machine gun.

As reported by MSNBC, the 9-year-old was among a group of children playing with LEGOs at lunchtime when he ran afoul of the school system’s zero-tolerance policy for toy guns. (Even though another student playing with an ax-wielding LEGO figure was not harassed by the administration.)

Fortunately, reason prevailed and no suspension was ordered. The student and his parents met with the principal and it was agreed that the offending toy would not be brought to school again.
