8th Grader Arrested Over Gun Shirt

A West Virginia 8th grade student was suspended, arrested, and charged with "obstruction and disturbing the education process."

And what did he do to land himself in so much trouble?

He wore a t-shirt with a rifle and NRA logo.

If you're shocked by this, then you don't know the absurd lengths our public schools will take to enforce zero tolerance laws.

This is the picture of the teenager and his "offending" t-shirt:

To be fair, the school's dress code prohibits clothing that displays violence, but a hunting rifle by itself hardly constitutes violence.

Celestia knows what would have happened if the kid had been caught eating a pop tart while wearing that shirt.
