Parkland student and Second Amendment advocate Kyle Kashuv told The Daily Wirehe was questioned by school security officers on Monday, after they became aware that he had visited a gun range with his father on Friday.

Kyle posted pictures from his trip to the range, complete with a tweet:

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




But when he returned to school on Monday, he was pulled out of class and told to meet with two school security officers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Kyle saysthe officers questioned him “intensely,” saying: “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 Broward County sheriff’s deputy joined them and asked the same questions. Kyle asked if he could record the discussion, and was told he could not. After asking if he had done anything wrong, the teen says the officers answered that he had not.

Kyle also said that one of the officers referred to him as the “pro-Second Amendment kid.”

He said he was further asked by one of the officers, “Kyle, you have such good grades, why would you do this?”

While other Parkland students have asked for gun control in response to the mass murder that occurred at their school on February 14, Kyle has pointed to the failing of law enforcement in the incident, saying that guns aren’t the problem.

In a tweet responding to his questioning, he said, “This is outrageous. Instead of looking for solutions or holding their own department accountable for countless failures, @browardsheriff’s officers are now harassing kids with views they don’t like. That department desperately needs new leadership and accountability.”
