Broward Count Deputies Question Kyle Kashuv Over Gun Range Trip, Pics

Recommended Posts


While the media jumped at the opportunity to latch onto the anti-gun Parkland kids, spamming the airwaves with their faces and voices, there was another voice trying to break through. Kyle Kashuv became the lone voice for the Constitution and the Second Amendment at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School coming out of that tragedy.

Since then, he’s met with President Trump and the first lady. He’s spent time with Sen. Marco Rubio. He’s gotten to know pundits like Ben Shapiro and others. He’s even had a girl ask him to her prom in Nebraska.

Yet despite his name becoming well known in Second Amendment circles, it seems Kyle had never shot a firearm before in his life.

Luckily, a recent range trip remedied that. It also opened the door for what I can best term as harassment.

On Friday, Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv went to the gun range to learn to fire a gun for the first time, alongside his father. He tweeted this:

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

Facts matter. I wish the facts of guns were more known. We need to educate the public and show them why they NEED the 2A. pic.twitter.com/HzjEx9LH2r

Unsurprisingly, some of his fellow students took issue with Kyle going to a gun range. Apparently, because someone did something bad at their school with a gun, everyone in the school must shun the tool that another tool used to kill people.

Now, Kyle went with his father, so he had parental supervision.

However, Kyle claims that when he returned to school, he was told to report to a Mr. Greenleaf. This was apparently a little odd since Kyle didn’t know who Mr. Greenleaf was. It turns out Mr. Greenleaf is the new school resource officer, an SRO who then proceeded to hound Kyle about his range trip along with another deputy.

“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,” Kyle recounts.

He added, “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?'”

Except, what happened there a few months ago had nothing to do with Kyle.

The killer from a few months ago was a problem kid who had had multiple run-ins with the law and all kinds of problems at school. Kyle is none of those things, so far as we can tell.

Instead, they decide to harass–that’s my word based on my opinion–the one voice not supporting gun control in the school. Since Sheriff Scott Israel has been pushing gun control as a way to hide the complete and utter failures of his department, it’s a little funny that they question Kyle on this. After all, he’s engaging in a lawful activity and has made absolutely no threats.

As Townhall columnist Kurt Schlichter phrased it:

Look on the bright side.

We finally found somebody the Broward County sheriffs deputies are willing to take on in a school…

That’s about right.

I can get that they don’t want a repeat of either the shooting or their failures, but this isn’t the way to go about it. Shooting guns with one’s parent is hardly the mark of a killer in the making, and I think they know that.

I think this was nothing more than an attempt to silence Kyle because he’s making them look bad. After all, his stand has shown more guts than the previous MSD school resource officer showed.
