The plot of the Kyle Kashuv Harvard rejection thickens.
I firmly believe that the reason every media outlet in the country seems to be covering this is to shame a young man for having the temerity to stand up for gun rights after the Parkland shooting. I cannot imagine any other reason that major news outlets would have a multi-pundit panel to discuss one kid’s rejection from college, especially in such an unsympathetic light.
MSNBC had a former Florida Congressman, David Jolly on to dump on Kashuv.
"My immediate reaction when I really dug into this, these are the social media postings we see of a shooter and we ask, ‘Where were the signs?' See something, Say something," @DavidJollyFL said. pic.twitter.com/xx4shxjhW5

Did you catch that at the end of his rant?
Kyle Kashuv, who was the only Parkland student to do anything remotely effective in trying to curb school shootings and actually worked with Senators in a bipartisan way, instead of engaging in two-minute-hate rallies against the NRA, should not be allowed to buy guns because of what he wrote in this Google doc.
If that doesn’t justify the sudden screeching halt of Red Flag Laws, I don’t know what will.
Rather than try to address actual threats, these laws are going to be used to punish thoughtcrime and kids being stupid.
Get contacted by the Sheriff’s Department 49 times for various disturbances… who cares.
Tell a racist joke in private to some friends who are also telling racist jokes… and you lose your Second Amendment rights as an adult for life.
Way to destroy any credibility or benefit-of-the-doubt your program might have had, just to show that it is going to be an ineffectual tool for crime prevention that vengeful people can use to inflict pain on others.
