In West Virginia an eighth grader was arrested and faces charges for wearing an NRA T-shirt with an image of a gun and the slogan "Protect Your Right."
Police confirmed that 14-year-old Jared Marcum was arrested and faced charges of "obstruction and disturbing the education process" after he got into an argument with his teacher and refused to change the shirt, WOWK-TV reports.
"I never thought it would go this far because honestly I don't see a problem with this," Jared said.
Was Jared shirt against the rules? It's not clear from the school's clothing policy, which does not mention weapons specifically:
A student will not dress or groom in a manner that disrupts the educational process or is detrimental to the health, safety or welfare of others. A student will not dress in a manner that is distractive or indecent, to the extent that it interferes with the teaching and learning process, including wearing any apparel that displays or promotes any drug-, alcohol- or tobacco-related product that is prohibited in school buildings, on school grounds, in school-leased or owned vehicles, and at all school-affiliated functions.
This is far from the first time that schools have seemingly over-reacted about students' possessing toy guns or images of firearms since the Newtown shooting. In March a 5-year-old was suspended for a Hello Kitty bubble gun and a boy was suspended for biting his pastry into the shape of a gun.
