An 8-year old Baltimore elementary school student who was suspended for biting his Pop-Tart into the shape of gun has been awarded an NRA life membership by those who think the school overreached.
Park Elementary in Brooklyn Park, Anne Arundel County, MD, said they suspended Josh Welch not simply for fashioning the Pop-Tart in the shape of a gun, but for also saying “inappropriate things.”
According to CBS Baltimore, those “inappropriate things” were, “bang, bang.”
The child’s father, William Welch, explained that his son meant nothing harmful with the words: “It wasn’t a big deal to him. So he figured he could go ‘bang, bang,’ and he was just playing around.”
In response to this craziness, a group of Anne Arundel County Republicans pooled their money and bought Josh a lifetime membership to the NRA.
Anne Arundel Country Councilman Jamie Benoit also says he will buy Josh a membership for the American Civil Liberties Union.
