Dad Loses Gun After Argument with School Principal

Police3ARLINGTON, Mass. (AP) — The superintendent of Arlington schools is apologizing for a lack of communication after officials confiscated a gun from the father of an elementary school student following an argument with a principal.

The Boston Herald reports that Superintendent Kathleen Bodie said in a message to parents, students and faculty that communication to the community could have been better.

Police confiscated the gun of Robert Goodwin Jr., suspended his gun license and ordered him Friday to stay away from the Stratton Elementary School. Police say principal Michael Hanna reported that Goodwin flashed his gun permit in an argument over his child’s drawing and said he had access to firearms at home.

Goodwin says he did not threaten Hanna’s life in any way.

Police say Goodwin has not been charged, though an investigation continues.
