Police called by Connecticut school after student makes toy gun out of Legos

Last Thursday, Fox61 reported that officials at the Jepsen Magnet School in New Haven, Connecticut, called police after a student built a toy gun out of Legos and allegedly began pointing it at other students.

In 2013 a five year old in Massachusetts was almost suspended after he made a gun out of Legos.

Exit question: Did the Legos come with a warning label?
