Kyle Kashuv Questioned By School Security After Visit To Gun Range
Parkland shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv says he was aggressively questioned by school security after posting tweets about going to the gun range with his father.
Kashuv, who has been a vocal proponent of the Second Amendment, visited a gun range on Friday with his dad to shoot a gun for the first time. He posted several tweets about his visit that included photos and videos of him shooting a gun and arguing for the importance of the right to bear arms.
It was great learning about our inalienable right of #2A and how to properly use a gun. 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 pic.twitter.com/4rcOZbpl88

However, Kashuv told The Daily Wire that when he returned to school on Monday he was called to the office and questioned by school security.
“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…it turned out that he was an armed school resource officer,” Kashuv said. “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.”
Kashuv said the officers asked him who he went to the range with, what kinds of guns he used, who his father is, and other “condescending and rude” questions.
“I asked why I was there,” he continued. “One said, ‘Don’t get snappy with me, do you not remember what happened here a few months ago?'”
Kashuv said the officers repeatedly called him the “pro-Second Amendment kid” and wouldn’t cite anything he had done wrong.
“I was shocked and honestly, scared. It definitely felt like they were attempting to intimidate me,” Kashuv asserted.
