A pro-gun student at the Parkland, Florida, high school where 17 people were killed in a Feb. 14 mass shooting says he was yanked from class and grilled after about his trip to a gun range with his dad.
Kyle Kashuv told The Daily Wire he was called out of class at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Monday to talk to two security resource officers about the Twitter posts of the gun-range visit.
According to Kashuv, "My dad was there, and I shot with an AR-15. After, I posted a few pictures and videos."
In a statement to the news outlet, Kashuv described the excruciating interrogation.
"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.," he said.
"They were incredibly condescending and rude," Kashuv told The Daily Wire.
At that point, Kashuv claims, a Broward County Sheriff's officer joined them, "and began asking me the same questions again."
Kashuv said the officers declined to let him record the interview, but told him he had not done anything wrong.
"I asked why I was there," Kashuv told the outlet. "One said, 'Don't get snappy with me, do you not remember what happened here a few months ago?'"
The teen also said officers referred to him as "the pro-Second Amendment kid."
Eventually, Kashuv said the officers let him go and told him they would contact his parents.
The Broward County Sheriff's Office told Fox News that Kelvin Greenleaf asked school resource deputy Dean Seymour to sit in on his interview with Kashuv.
Kashuv has drawn a lot of attention for his pro-Second Amendment stance in the wake of the mass shooting — a tragedy that revitalized the gun control movement, and triggered students from his school, and around the country, to mobilize for an end to mass shooting violence.
