Kyle Kashuv isn’t getting the same attention his fellow Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students are because he hasn’t shaved his head and become the anti-gun voice of a new generation.
Instead, Kashuv is speaking rationally and stating his desire to see changes in how mental health sufferers obtain weapons, more stringent background checks, raising the buying age to 21, and placing armed security at schools across the nation. Thinking like that won’t get you an invite to Ellen’s show:
Kashuv found an outlet for his non-leftist voice at Fox News where he was interviewed over the weekend where he chided his schoolmates for dividing the nation:
“Look, I know these kids on a personal level. I’ve talked to them personally, and it concerns me a bit, because right now, this is a bipartisan issue for mental health restrictions and reform and their taking it a step further. I talked to them personally and many of them would like a complete ban on all weapons if possible…
“The agenda is switching from ‘#NeverAgain’ to trying to ban weapons and that’s… deeply concerning, because I really want to make sure this will never happen again but still I support the Second Amendment.”
Kashuv also called out the failures of the Broward County Sheriff’s Department and even called for Sheriff Scott Israel to resign:
“It absolutely outrages me that on the CNN town hall, we had the the sheriff who was virtue-signaling against the NRA and against guns when he didn’t even act properly.
“The armed officer at our school waited outside… and the sheriff and his men for four minutes — let my classmates die while he sat outside and waited. He didn’t even do his job properly and then he comes around and turns around and says guns are the issue when he failed to act properly.”
While at the town hall gun debate, Sheriff Israel took on the National Rifle Association and its spokeswoman, Dana Loesch, piling on them the blame for the shooting, all the while knowing his men acted in cowardice or perhaps even on stand-down orders from above. Kashuv thinks all the blame lays on the Sheriff's shoulders.
“He absolutely needs to resign for what happened here,” Kashuv added. “He failed to act on so many different levels and [he] himself is responsible for this massive failure.”
