State Senator J.B. Jennings say he wants it to bring some common sense discipline to state schools. Last week Anne Arundel County school officials suspended 7-year-old Joshua Welch last week for eating a pastry in the shape of a gun. Senator Jennings said “These kids are 6 or 7 years old. They don’t understand what they’re doing,” Jennings says zero tolerance rules on school campuses are going too far, so he wrote a bill. It bans school leaders from suspending students who make the shape of a gun with their fingers or food, or students who draw a gun on a piece of paper. If the bill passes, students will be sent to counselors not suspended.
