Parkland Gun Rights Activist Questioned By School Security After His First Visit to Gun Range

Kyle Kashuv, the bold and articulate Majorie Stoneman Douglass High School sophomore who has been the antidote to his schoolmates and anti-2A media darlings David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez, went to the gun range over the weekend to get his own taste of the sacred rights he so boldly defends.

“It was great learning about our inalienable right of #2A and how to properly use a gun,” he tweeted, along with pictures of his first experience with a firearm. “This was my first time ever touching a gun and it made me appreciate the #Constitution even more. My instructor was very informative; I learnt a lot. #2A is important and we need 2 preserve 2A.”

“A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,” he added.

Kyle’s tweets, which clearly advocated for gun safety, information, and the importance of Second Amendment rights, disturbed many of his classmates who saw them posted on Twitter.

But it didn’t end there.

When he got to school, he told the Daily Wire, the principal told him that while he was aware other students were upset, Kyle hadn’t done anything wrong. School security, on the other hand, clearly felt he had done something wrong, as things took a disturbing turn as the day went on.

Here is Kyle’s account:

Near the end of third period, my teacher got a call from the office saying I need to go down and see a Mr. Greenleaf. I didn’t know Mr. Greenleaf, but it turned out that he was an armed school resource officer. I went down and found him, and he escorted me to his office. Then a second security officer walked in and sat behind me. Both began questioning me intensely. First, they began berating my tweet, although neither of them had read it; then they began aggressively asking questions about who I went to the range with, whose gun we used, about my father, etc. They were incredibly condescending and rude.

Then a third officer from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office walked in, and began asking me the same questions again. At that point, I asked whether I could record the interview. They said no. I asked if I had done anything wrong. Again, they answered no. I asked why I was there. One said, “Don’t get snappy with me, do you not remember what happened here a few months ago?”

They continued to question me aggressively, though they could cite nothing I had done wrong. They kept calling me “the pro-Second Amendment kid.” I was shocked and honestly, scared. It definitely felt like they were attempting to intimidate me.

I was treated like a criminal for no reason other than having gone to the gun range and posted on social media about it.

The Daily Wire reached out to school administrators and to Broward County Sheriff for comment, but has received no reply.

Kids like Kyle give us hope for future generations, but if the way he is being treated in his own community is any indication, he’s got a lot of adversity in his future.

He sincerely deserves our support and encouragement for his boldness and his brave response to a horrific tragedy, and his unrelenting support for our Second Amendment liberties!
