Pro-Gun Parkland Shooting Survivor Kyle Kashuv Questioned by School Security for Going to Gun Range With His Father

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv is known to be the most outspoke proponent for gun rights from his school. On Friday, Kashuv and his father went to the gun range so he could shoot a gun for the first time. Documenting the event on Twitter:

Kyle stated, “My dad was there and I shot with an AR-15. After, I posted a few pictures and videos.”

Almost instantly his school peers trashed him for visiting a gun range and posting about it. Surprisingly the harassment didn’t stop there, school administrators jumped on this too. Arriving at school yesterday, Kashuv was confronted by his principal who informed him he did nothing wrong (no sh*t), but that other students were upset by it. Kyle reported that by mid-morning he was interrogated by authorities:

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 school note telling him to go to Mr. Greenleaf was photographed by Kashuv:
