Did this go too far?

A 6 yr-old Colorado first-grader has been suspended from school after he aimed his fingers at a classmate in the shape of the gun and said: “You’re dead.”   Little Elijah Thurston was banned from attending Stratton Meadows Elementary School in Colorado Springs for one day after Monday’s incident.   Teachers said he was disciplined for “making threats against peers”, but his parents say he was “just playing.”
