Boy who made Pop-Tart into gun shape gets NRA membership

May 30, 2013 at 11:28 AM

BROOKLYN PARK, Md., May 30 (UPI) -- An 8-year-old Maryland boy suspended for biting his Pop-Tart into a gun shape received a National Rifle Association lifetime membership at a GOP fundraiser.

Josh Welch, who was suspended March 1 from Park Elementary School in Brooklyn Park for making a gun shape with his Pop-Tart, was presented with a $550 lifetime membership to the NRA by state House Minority Leader Nicholaus Kipke, R-Pasadena, during a Wednesday night fundraiser for Anne Arundel County Republicans, The Baltimore Sun reported Thursday.

Welch gave the certificate to his parents before returning to playing games on a cellphone at the event.

"Everyone keeps asking me why I did it," Josh said. "I don't know why I did it ... I wish people would stop asking me about it. It'll probably go on for 45 years or something."
