Seattle Times letters to the editor

Maryland boy suspended for chewing pastry into ‘gun’ shape

Mixed messages for children

I do understand the sensitivity in public schools toward guns [“School suspends boy, 7, who chewed tart into ‘gun’ shape,” News, March 5]. I myself am very concerned about guns in this country.

I am wondering, though, about a nation that expels a young child from school for chewing his pastry into the shape of a gun or holding their finger like a gun, but at the same time allows parents to walk around openly with assault rifles.

It seems like we are sending very mixed messages to our children.
