13-Year-Old Suspended for Drawing a Gun

A 13-year-old North Carolina child received a two-day suspension several weeks ago for just drawing a stick figure holding a gun.

According to WABC-TV, a stick figure holding a rifle can be seen in the picture.  Other things in the sketch included what appeared to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, a magician, a “suped up mini-car,” a knight bearing a sword, and a castle.

WABC reported that Roseboro-Salemburg Middle School in Roseboro, North Carolina, suspended the seventh-grade boy for the picture.

According to the station, school Superintendent Eric Bracy explained that the young man was suspended in an effort to remain “extra vigilant about all issues of safety” as a result of “everything happening in the nation.”
