Conservative Parkland Student's Whirlwind Week in Washington Is Already Paying Off

If you are on Twitter, odds are you've seen at least one photo of Parkland shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv meeting all of our top officials in Washington. His busy week included sit downs with House Speaker Paul Ryan, Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Ted Cruz (R-TX), CNN reporter Jim Acosta, Townhall's own Katie Pavlich, and even President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump.


Guy introduced you to Kyle last week, when the two met to discuss how the young man's voice had been drowned out by his more liberal classmates. His peers like David Hogg and Cameron Kasky have been denouncing the NRA and calling for gun control. These students were invited to a CNN town hall, where they berated NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch and the Republican Rubio for failing to endorse more gun control. One student even compared him to the AR-15. 

Kashuv took a different approach in the wake of the carnage at his school.

"I'm a very strong Second Amendment supporter and I will continue to be throughout this entire campaign," Kashuv told Guy.

The interview went viral and the word got out. Before he knew it, Kashuv was the most sought after voice on Capitol Hill. He scored plenty of media hits as well, including "Fox & Friends" Friday morning.

His week on Capitol Hill is already making an impact. Lawmakers are readying a bill mandating that local authorities are notified in cases where someone lies to try to buy a gun illegally. Sens. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Marco Rubio are co-sponsoring the bill and it is supported by Democrats like Sen. Bill Nelson (FL) and Chris Coons (DE). The STOP School Violence Act will allow local authorities to identify potential killers. It is "a model that works," Rubio said Friday on Fox News.


Florida’s two U.S. senators announced a new bipartisan bill Monday to add teeth to the gun background check system by notifying local authorities in cases where someone lies to try to buy a gun illegally.

Attempting to buy a gun while on the banned buyer list is a crime, though the federal government hardly ever prosecutes — and in many cases never informs states that an attempt was made, denying them the chance to do their own investigation or prosecution.

The new bill would require states to be notified of all “lie-and-try” attempts.

It would also require the Justice Department to report on its own prosecutions, giving the public a better sense for why federal authorities regularly decline to pursue charges. (Washington Times)

Kashuv is excited about the bipartisan effort.

He encouraged his classmates to take a look for themselves.
