Parkland High School shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv recently spoke out about last year’s tragic attack, saying it isn’t a gun issue.
While speaking at the annual National Rifle Association (NRA) leadership forum Friday, Kashuv claimed the attack was a failure of government. He added, it’s time to hold elected officials accountable.
Kashuv went on to say leftist policies allowed the shooter to commit the heinous crime that took 17 lives, and claimed taking guns away endangers the public.
“I recognize that this isn’t a gun issue — there’s no reason to disarm law abiding citizens, because of the malice of a few,” he stated. “Gun control is not only ineffective, it’s entirely dangerous.
The Parkland shooting survivor went on to say school teachers should be allowed to carry concealed weapons to combat the threat of school shootings. Kashuv said if courtrooms, airports and even banks are protected by guns, teachers should be allowed to do the same.
