A judge has upheld the suspension of a Maryland elementary school student who chewed his breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun and pretended to shoot classmates.
    
Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Ronald Silkworth ruled this week the school system could reasonably consider the 7-year-old boy’s actions disruptive, and a two-day suspension was appropriate.
    
The Washington Post reports in March 2013 the Brooklyn Park second-grader nibbled his breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun, and exclaimed: “Look, I made a gun!”
    
The incident occurred less than three months after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
    
The boy’s father says he still wants to clear the record of his son, now finishing fifth grade, and is considering his next step.
