10-Year Old Suspended for Pointing Finger Like Gun

10-Year Old Suspended for Pointing Finger Like Gun

Ten-year-old fifth-grader Nathan Entingh was suspended last week for pointing his finger like a gun.

According to The Columbus Dispatch, Entingh’s suspension letter listed his offense as a “level 2 lookalike firearm.”

Entingh is a student at Devonshire Alternative Elementary School, where principal Patricia Price says she’s “warned students about pretend gun play numerous times this year.”

School district spokesman Jeff Warner said Entingh “put his finger to the side of another student’s head and pretended to shoot.” He added, “The kids were told, ‘If you don’t stop doing this type of stuff, there will be consequences.”

Entingh’s father, Paul Entingh, said his son was “just playing.” Paul said the suspension “would… make more sense maybe if [Nathan] brought a plastic gun that looked like a real gun or something, but it was his finger.”
