Parkland Survivor Kyle Kashuv Says School Security Officers Interrogated Him After Gun Range Visit

It’s official. We’re living in 1984 in the 21st Century. Just as Ronald Reagan predicted, fascism is here and it calls itself “liberalism.” You may have seen Parkland survivor and Second Amendment advocate Kyle Kashuv tweet about his first experience with shooting a rifle at a Florida gun range. He was excited and wanted to share it with his Twitter followers. Here’s what he posted:

Learning proper gun safety. And in the responsible way that so many on the Left say they want: via a trained professional teaching Kyle the proper procedures for gun safety. That’s commendable, right? WRONG. Right on cue, hoards of gun-hating, mouth-foaming liberals totalitarian Leftists were verklempt that—gasp!—Kyle would dare pick up a rifle and learn to use it properly as a self-defense tool.

Well, it gets worse.

On Monday afternoon, following his third period class at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, this is what Kyle says happened:

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.

So much for the zero-tolerance-for-bullying school policy. We. Will. Have. ORDER! (Said in my best Dolores Umbridge voice.)

Without his parents present, and by security officers who treated him like a criminal for doing nothing but exercising his Second Amendment right to bear arms. Can you say Brown Shirts?

This reaction from a Daily Wire reader sums it up perfectly:

Ken Reid: “Don’t get snappy with me, do you not remember what happened here a few months ago?” Yes I do, a cowardly school resource officer did nothing while a bunch of kids were murdered.


The Broward County Sheriff, as well as the school district itself, is already under intense scrutiny for their complete failure to stop the shooter, both long before he ever entered the building, then as they waited outside like cowards while he shot those inside, unimpeded. And now there’s this:

I’m not sure I have confidence in the entire department if yesterday’s grilling of a law-abiding citizen is any indication of their lack of professionalism and respect for those they safeguard.

Meanwhile, this self-described national security attorney offered a lengthy thread of tripe in defense of the inquisition, er, questioning of Kashuv. Make sure you read through the entire discussion for the full affect of his asshattery. THIS is why lawyers get such a bad wrap:

Nope. Sorry. What Kyle says the officers did to him on Monday, without a parent present and a refusal to allow the conversation to be recorded, is wholly unacceptable in our free society. He’s not a threat to the school. He has no troubled history. He’s a well-known member of the community. Just about everyone who’s paid even the slightest amount of attention has heard of Kyle and the efforts he’s making to help stop school shootings, including visiting representatives from both parties on Capitol Hill as well as the President and First Lady. What he does on the weekends, on his time and within the law and protected by our constitution, is his own business. Last I checked, we still have a Second Amendment, and a Fourth Amendment. But Big Brothers, both within the Broward County Sheriff’s Office—lead by a leftist political hack who cares more about his image than he does about the safety of his community—and the school district itself, seem to think intimidation is an acceptable tactic to use against a student who disagrees with their gun control agenda, one with different ideas about how to stop mass shootings, including learning how not to be a victim.

Precisely. And what happened to Kyle at a place where he’s supposed to be safe and welcome just proved why the Second Amendment exists.

Indeed. And something tells me the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, and the school district that demands its liberal line be toed, is about to get a major earful. And my personal preference: slapped up the sides of their heads with a civil suit.

    you were just complaining the other day that law enforcement sits on its hands too much
    Well, this twit is exactly right. That’s the complaint being made.
    The problem is it went from “don’t do anything because we might look bad to the race-mongers” to totalitarian wipe-out “don’t let anything go by because we might get called on it later.”

    IOW, you still don’t get it. You still don’t get what law enforcement should be doing, and you still don’t get the concept of “free citizen”.

    And, Kyle, learn this phrase “I’m not answering any questions until you let me record the session, or my father and an attorney are present.” Try not to add “you fascists” to the end of it. While it might be true, it has a tendency to harden their position. And, when they threaten you with suspension or expulsion, merely reply, “Fine. You will be seeing a letter from an attorney relating to a lawsuit about my constitutional rights.”

    a student who disagrees with their gun control agenda
    I’m not sure how much it’s his pro-2A stance, and how much it’s 1) he’s made them look bad, regardless of the gun issue, and 2) over-reaction to the criticism of “letting one get through”. The reaction to an event like this is so often to swing the pendulum far the other way – “zero tolerance” anyone?
    It’s still WAY wrong. But I don’t know how much is 2A and how much is simple bureaucratic idiocy or institutional embarrassment.

    • GWB says:

      Let me clarify the “you were just complaining” bit:
      The complaint about how they handled Cruz was NOT “you guys didn’t do anything” but “you guys had clear signs this dude was a psychopath and a killer in the making, but you blew it off.”
      The complaint is NOT that they didn’t slap Cruz into jail at the first sign of him picking up a gun, but that they didn’t want to take responsibility when there was clear, overwhelming, REPEAT evidence that he was a problem.

      If all they had on Cruz was that he liked guns, I wouldn’t complain at all about how the authorities handled him prior to the shooting.
      If Kashuv has expressed a desire to harm any of the authorities at the school or the sheriff’s office, then they might have a point. If he expressed something in those tweets like “this is what I’m gonna do to any b**** that hassles me at school!” then it might be worth looking into.

      But, they have no wisdom and no knowledge – and therefore no capacity for judgment – so they do this sort of stupidity.

      Great points, GWB, as always.

    • Paul Izzo says:

      Guns should always be pointed down range. He should not have been allowed to pose with the gun outside the lane.

  • Duke Powell says:

    If the conduct described by this student is true, the police’s conduct was outrageous. But I’ll have to say my B.S. monitor’s needle is twitching.

    • Jodi says:

      Great points, GWB, as always.

    • Jodi says:

      Skepticism is healthy!

    • SDN says:

      Mine isn’t. Seeing as how that behavior is common for conservatives. Ask the CEO of Gibson Guitars who got raided for “illegal rosewood” while the rosewood from the same shipment went to Martin Guitars with no problems.

      Of course, Martin paid the baksheesh by donating to Obama’s campaign…..

  • SFC D says:

    Kyle Kashuv just thoroughly tweaked the collective noses of the anti-gun ghouls reveling in the Parkland shooting. I can’t say that his intent was to stir a reaction, I’m leaning toward yes. His perfectly legal and very responsible act exposed the school district and local law enforcement for what they are. And what they are is a bunch of incompetent clowns that cared more for the rating and reputation of the school system than they did about the safety of their students.

  • Wfjag says:

    Obviously, the situation at Douglas Stoneman H.S. Is now safe, since the school’s armed security and Broward County Deputies were inside the building.

  • GWB says:

    Some idiot history teacher at the school tried to tweet Kashuv under. It did not go well.

    any student posting photos holding guns, knives or other weapons would be questioned
    Well, then you’ve just admitted you’re going to violate EVERYONE’S rights. Technically, that might help with any bias lawsuit, but you’re still vulnerable to the whole panoply of other civil rights charges.

    Most gun owners would not hold their gun in this same posed manner
    Bullhockey. He’s posing in a perfectly rational, safe manner. And it’s how almost every rifle owner I’ve ever seen a photo of holds his weapon, as well as being the fashion in which I hold mine (when it’s not muzzle up, or slung).

    Something else to point out about Mr. Moss: he specializes in “National security lawyer”. That means he works with clearances, etc.

    If anyone still wonders why President Trump’s staffers have problems getting necessary clearances, while Pakistani guys get access to admin Congressional servers, Huma “relatives in Muslim Brotherhood” got hers with no fuss, etc., it’s because every ONE of the President’s staff are having to go through guys like him. No Deep State, my a$$.

  • Drew458 says:

    I’m glad this kid went to the range with his dad to learn to shoot, and learned a bit about gun safety. I wonder if he would have received the same treatment from the school authorities if he didn’t picture himself with a human outline target shot full of holes. Not the smartest move IMHO, but nobody is mentioning it.

    Personally, I can’t imagine firing a .223 indoors. Deafening. That place must have MASSIVE soundproofing.

    When I take a new shooter out for their first time, I staple up some white paper dinner plates at about 25 feet, and use .22 rimfire (rifle or pistol) because of low noise and no recoil. When they get good at hitting the big paper plates I switch to the smaller kind. That’s about good enough for the first time out. Sure, the kid could have posed his rifle better, probably with an open bolt or with a yellow chamber flag in it, but at least his finger is off the trigger and there’s no magazine in the well. Plus eyes and ears. So I’m Ok with that.

  • Scott says:

    The family definitely needs to get a lawyer and sue the living crap out of the school district, and the Sheriffs dept everything about the interrogation was illegal. And when will Gov. Scott finally grow a pair, and suspend this POS Israel, pending the legislature throwing him out?

  • I’m sure there are some guns I’ve never fired, But after recently reading about the Muslim infiltration rate into the United States, and their Birth rate compared to the Americans who were/are born and brought up here, its a scary situation. Currant US Birthrate is 1.8 children per couple. Currant Birthrate of Typical Muslim family’s, where each male can have many wife’s, is over 8. At this rate, by 2025, over 50% of our Country could be infested with Muslim Doctrine. Check out this Video… Please Called Scary Statistics: If its true. VID-20180102-WA0040
    It details a comprehensive breakdown of fertility rates and Birth rates around the world. We are in trouble, even if its half right.
    BTW: Can you increase the FONT, so us older guys, who are at the end of our time can read your blogs a bit clearer, without a magnifying glass….. I use them on my Guns, I don’t want them hanging on the bridge of my nose…….Just to read… LOL
