Parkland School Shooting Survivor’s Gun Range Visit Triggers Interrogation by Authorities (VIDEO)

Kyle Kashuv, the Parkland school shooting survivor who has been an outspoken supporter of gun rights, was interrogated by local authorities and “treated like a criminal,” all because he exercised his Constitutionally-guaranteed rights.

After Kashuv tweeted out pictures of his visit to a local gun range last week, he was called in to the principal’s office at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School this week, and interrogated by school security guards and a member of the Broward County Sheriff’s Department.

As he later described, Kashuv was interrogated and mocked by authorities, who ridiculed his tweets, even though they admit they hadn’t seen them. They called him the “Pro-Second Amendment Kid” and treated him like “criminal,” even though he attended the gun range with his father and received lesson from a gun instructor there on the proper use of an AR-15 rifle.

The Daily Mail reports.

Kyle Kashuv went to the gun range to learn to fire a gun for the first time on Friday.

He posted photos and videos of himself holding the AR-15 as he was instructed how to shoot the weapon.

‘It was great learning about our inalienable right of #2A and how to properly use a gun,’ Kashuv tweeted, referring to the Second Amendment.

‘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,’ he added.

It appears some of the pro-gun control students at Douglas High School, led by David Hogg, were triggered by the incident, and reported him to school authorities.


Kashuv believed his visit to the gun range was harmless, but students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School did not.

When he arrived to school on Monday he was called out for his actions and instructed to see the school’s armed resource officer.

According to the Daily Wire, Kashuv was informed by his principal that other students had been upset by his posts, but that he hadn’t done anything wrong.

Kashuv then claimed that he was treated like a ‘criminal’ while meeting with the security officer.

Even though he is well-known at the school for his pro-gun stance, Kashuv says he was “treated like a criminal” and a possible threat to the students.

He said a second security officer was also present in the meeting. ‘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,’ Kashuv claimed.

According to Kashuv, a third officer from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office later walked in and interrogated him all over 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?”‘

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

Some believe Kashuv’s treatment may be connected to his criticism of the “March for Our Lives” movement, student and gun control activist David Hogg, and Sheriff Scott Israel.

Here are the tweets from Kashuv showing his gun range lesson.

Neither the sheriff’s department nor school administrators have come forward to explain or apologize for their actions.
