Maryland boys suspended for gun hand gesture
Last Updated: 127 days ago
A couple of Maryland children have been suspended for using making hand gestures in the shape of a gun.
Earlier this month, six-year-old Rodney Lynch was suspended from his Montgomery County school after pretending to fire an imaginary gun.
The school reversed its decision after Lynch's parents appealed.
"They're saying he threatened a student, threatened to shoot a student. He was playing," said Lynch's father.
Some child psychologists say most 6-year-olds' minds aren't developed enough to understand why their idea of fun play might make adults upset.
