Pro-gun speakers were barred from Saturday’s March For Our Lives event, so Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv took his case to “Face the Nation” instead – and he brutally excoriated the government for all its failures and shortcomings that contributed to the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
Kashuv was on air for all of five minutes, but he said more in those five minutes than his classmates have said in all their weeks of pandering to liberal gun-grabbers.
Host Margaret Brennan started by asking Kashuv whether he disagreed with his classmates and lawmakers who are calling for a ban of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. As Kashuv explained, neither will stop mass shootings. Why? Because, unlike the liberal media wants us all to believe, guns were far from the only factor in the tragedy of Parkland:
“That won’t solve the issue. What we’ve seen is that there are certain things such as enforcing the regulation that’s currently in law — I mean, we’ve seen on so many different levels that the “cowards of Broward” failed, the FBI failed, Sheriff Scott Israel failed. So many different multilayered levels failed in Parkland, and it’s absolutely reprehensible that I didn’t see one single poster yesterday at the march that said “eff Sheriff Scott Israel.”
Brennan then asked Kashuv what he believed could have prevented Nikolas Cruz from going on a rampage. Again, Kashuv blamed a lack of action from the FBI and local law enforcement:
“Well look, I mean, this kid was flagged. He was flagged by Child Protective Services … he was flagged by the FBI; he was flagged so many different times by the Broward Sheriff’s Office, and it’s — we need to see that we have to hold our government accountable. We have to because this can happen again if our government does not do what it’s supposed to do. And I find it ironic that after all this — and we’ve seen so many different government failures — we want to trust the government even more.”

Kashuv also said there’s a “silent majority at Stoneman Douglas who agrees with me completely” and called for more armed officers in schools, like the armed resource officer who recently stopped a school shooter in Maryland. “He stopped the shooter; he did his job,” Kashuv said. “And had the cowards of Broward done their job, I think that the [body] count in Parkland would have been much lower.”
Kashuv is absolutely right. Students like David Hogg and Emma González are simply parroting a narrative that’s been fed to them by the likes of CNN, but the problem goes far deeper than the availability of “assault weapons.” If there truly is a silent majority like Kashuv said, then it’s time for them to speak up, lest the gun-grabbers get their way.
