According to THE WEEK magazine, the NRA awarded lifetime membership to an eight-year-old boy who was suspended from school for biting his Pop Tart into the shape of a gun.  The kid didn’t do it intentionally and certainly didn’t hold up his breakfast food and say “bang.”  The school over-reacted but the NRA looks even more foolish. Little Joel Welch didn’t even know what the NRA was but he said he enjoyed the standing ovation he got when they made the presentation.  There’s a sicko element in adults trying to make an e-year-old into a gun totter—even if it’s a doughy thing. UGH... Bone head move! (Of course, what does this say about his parents who surely took him to the event!??
