7-year-old suspended for toy gun

Posted: Updated:

A 7-year-old boy in western Pennsylvania was suspended from school, after he accidentally brought a toy gun to class.

When Darin Simak realized he had brought the gun to school, right away he took it to his teacher, according to his parents.

The boy thought he was doing the right thing.

"I handed it over and said 'I'm not supposed to have this'," Simak said.

But soon after, school officials called the parents, and said their son wasn't allowed back in class.

"I never claimed to be a perfect parent.,” said the boy’s mother, Jennifer Mathabel. "I didn't raise a perfect child."

But she says Darin did the right thing by turning it over to the teacher.

"Handed it over, and said I’m not supposed to have this,” said Mathabel. “She said that he could not come back to school. I sent him the next day anyway."
