Just a few weeks ago, Fox New personality Laura Ingraham lost several of her sponsors. The reason was rather, well, unusual. In a tweet she criticized one of the self-appointed teenage spokesmen who are trying to rid the nation of school shootings…mostly by getting rid of your right to own a firearm. Once offended, the young man asked for his Twitter followers to contact Ingraham’s sponsors and demand they remove their advertisements from her program.

While virtually all of the media attention has, naturally, been focused on the anti-gun teens, there is a small group of kids from the same school, with the same or greater personal connection to the shooting, who are supporting the Second Amendment of the US Constitution. One of those is Kyle Kashuv. Last Friday, Kyle visited a commercial, indoor range

Then things went, as they say, sideways. Via Daily Wire:

Kashuv was quickly called out for visiting a gun range and posting about it by a variety of other students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. But that wasn’t the end of the story. When Kyle went to school today, his principal informed him that other students had been upset by his posts, but that he hadn’t done anything wrong. But according to Kyle, in the middle of the morning, events took a different turn:

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.

As so often happens in the age of social media, this thing took a bizarre twist. Montel Williams got wind of the story:

I can’t resist…

Then a teacher from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School chimed in:

Kashuv responded.

And then you get the reply you might well expect:

So, the same school system that relentlessly avoiding intervening to prevent a shooting is now hazing a kid who visited a shooting range with his father. This is an institutional attempt to silence a young man who has committed the heresy of daring to think critically and form his own opinions in the face of the orthodoxy. This is how fascism begins.
