Eight Year-Old Suspended for Gun-Shaped Pop-Tart Gets Lifetime NRA Membership

An eight year-old boy who was suspended from school for shaping a gun out of a Pop-Tart has been given a lifetime membership to the National Rifle Association (NRA).

According to the Baltimore Sun, Josh Welch was presented with a lifetime membership to the NRA by Maryland state House Minority Leader, Nicholaus R. Kipke (R-Md.) at a fundraiser for Anne Arundel County Republicans.

The boy received a standing ovation at the event as he was given the membership which is valued at $550.

Josh, who was seven at the time of the suspension, made national headlines in early March after Park Elementary School disciplined the boy for biting a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun.

After the presentation Josh said:

"Everyone keeps asking me why I did it.  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."

The boy also received an autographed photo of himself and NRA's past- president, David Keene, who was the keynote speaker at the event.
