According to reports, an 8th grader in West Virginia was suspended and arrested after wearing an NRA t-shirt to school, which says: NRA: Protect Your Right" and features a picture of a rifle.

The shirt apparently caused an argument between the student, Jared Marcum, and a teacher at Logan Middle School. Yahoo News reports:

Police confirmed that Marcum had been arrested and faced charges of obstruction and disturbing the education process after getting into an argument over the shirt with a teacher at Logan Middle School, which is south of Charleston.

There is no apparent language banning such shirts in the school's policy.

Here's an interview from CBS 13 with the student and his father, who are both, obviously, pretty unhappy:

The father, Allen Lardieri, has pledged to do everything in his legal power to "make sure this does not happen again".

The school has remained quiet.
