Published on September 11, 2013

An 11-year-old boy attending Northern Middle School in Owings, Md., was suspended last year for saying “gun” in a conversation on the school bus, Todd Starnes reported Wednesday at Fox News.

According to Starnes, the sixth-grade boy was discussing the Sandy Hook school shootings when the bus driver overheard the conversation and dragged him to the school for questioning.

“He said, ‘I wish I had a gun to protect everyone.’ He wanted to defeat the bad guys,’’ Bruce Henkelman, the boy’s father, told WMAL. “That’s the context of what he said. He wanted to be the hero.”

“The principal told me that with what happened at Sandy Hook if you say the word ‘gun’ in my school you are going to get suspended for 10 days,” he added.
